Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

Man, sometimes my DH really surprises me. After having the Lupron shot, my hormones are all over the place. He just held me and reassured me it will all be good. Got to love a man like that

Thanks Wendy0106...So comforting to actually 'talk' to someone KNOWS what I'm going through and what I WILL go through. Ironically, looks like my 'pain' will be happening the morning of my surgery...I'd LOVE to wake up feeling better than when I went in!!!

Now if I could just stop the crazy cleaning that hurts me more after I'm done than it initially bothered me to begin with, I'd definitely be doing MUCH better.
dkknaebel I thought about having this info BEFORE the ablation too; but if I'm being honest, I probaby would've said, 'Nah, the % of that happening to me is soooo low I'll take my chances' and had it done anyway.

I AM soooo grateful to found out that I am NOT the only one though. And the fact we are all forced into this hysterectomy because of the Ablation is totally unfair, but I take great comfort in knowing we have each other to lean on.

Good luck on the 31st - surgery buddy!! (think of me on the 30th)

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

I too had an ablation in September of 2009 and I have my hysterectomy scheduled for Jan. 26. That is crazy how many of us had an ablation and now have to have the hysterectomy.

dance59, it really doesn't surprise anymore. I think I've come to expect that for most women the ablation doesn't work.

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

When given the option of an ablation, really the only negative that was portrayed to me was the possibility that it would fail. I figured why not give it a shot? Nobody mentioned that because of it, I would be in excruciating, debilitating pain. I would rather take the heavy bleeding rather than feeling like I wanted to die for several days each month.
The dr. who did my surgery last January attempted a uterine biopsy in July and when she couldn't do it, told me to wait six months and come see her again. She NEVER mentioned the possibility of something like this. She completely blew me off and dismissed my complaints of pain.
I had my LAVH Tuesday, Jan. 10. My dr. had to remove my right ovary and tube due to the extensive damage from the "backflow". I'm just so grateful that it didn't affect the left ovary. I do think they need to mention these side effects of this surgery before persuading so many of us to go through with it.

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

HI There. Although my situation is a bit different I can certainly feel your pain and disappointment. I went for my ablation procedure first thing this morning. My Uterus measured a 10 whereas the ultrasound measured a 9.5, with that, my surgeon tried unsuccessfully 3 times. It would not take. I have no idea why i am feeling the severe cramping as they only dilated me slightly and of course used freezing on my cervix. I can barely walk.Now, I have to go see my specialist this wednesday to book a hysterectomy. I am 36 years old and I feel like a circus freak! It wouldnt work for me because my uterus is too big? I am so disappointed that I now have to have a hysterectomy, and I am extremely scared. I was hoping to have more support from my partner who was there today, but I feel so alone. I now have taken a leave from my career and who knows when i will be returning as I have to wait for surgery. My surgeon assured me that i am on top of the list but that looks like March. I truly hope everything works out for you my dear, I didnt know how to post my own thread and just wanted to reach out! Take care!

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

I'm so sorry to hear of all of these ablation problems! Just when you think things are going to be fixed.... I had my ablation done ten years ago and it literally saved me. I was very anemic due to heavy periods, but my Gyno recommended an ablation instead of hysterectomy, which I was glad about. I've had very light, two-day periods ever since, up until the last six months. Now I'm schedules for a hysterectomy 2/7/12 because of cramping/abnormal bleeding/fibroids. Wondering now if my uterus is also fused? Gyno tried to do a biopsy but couldnt get all the way to the top. She didn't say a word about fusion. Thanks for all of your posts! So enlightening! Hope all of your healing goes smoothly, everyone!

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

Just A quick update.I am glad that my novasure wouldnt deploy I have adeno! From what i have been reading it wouldnt have done anything for my pain anyhow. I saw my surgeon today, because of my adeno, my uterus is massive and she will have to give me my hysterectomy through abdominal incision. I am pretty bummed as I had a heck of a time recovering from my c-section 3 years ago, but if this is going to fix me I am willing to do anything at this point!! So it is March for me, considering she officially booked me today, that is not a long wait at all! I am also on a cancellation list so I could go in a before. Thank you to all you wonderful ladies for sharing all of your most personal experiences on this site! I really dont know what I would do without it! And you can count on me taking my laptop with me when it is my turn to go in)

Re: Fused Uterus after ablation

I had two ultrasounds and neither really showed what was going on, aside from a thickened lining, polyps and a few small pockets of blood. I nearly spent Christmas Eve in the hospital, the pain was so horrendous and I usuall handle pain well, delivered all my babies with no epidural. I was scheduled for an SIS ? (where they insert fluid and scan) right after Christmas. The tech did a vaginal scan quickly and just could not believe what she was seeing, she said it was so full of blood, they couldn't tell what was what. She said there was no way the doc would get the catheter in there. This is when the doctor decided enough was enough. He said it was as though my utereus was in labor almost constantly, with no escape route....he didnt' want to see me go through another cycle and scheduled an LAVH for a week later. So I'm thinking that the scan needs to be done while the pain is happening? My other scans were at different times of the month and the blood might have somewhat flowed to the other regions through my tubes by then.
