Frustration (and Hope)

After nearly 2 weeks I heard from my Gyn/Onc. She had finally received the slides from my Gyn who did the original endometrial biopsy. As I am 34 and the diagnosis was endometrial CA she wanted to confirm it. Her pathologist has determined that the original sample was inadequate and therefore no diagnosis could be made from the sample. We are back to not knowing what is causing my symptoms. My Gyn/Onc wants to do a D&C (anyone who has had one please provide some details. I've done a lot of reading so I understand the procedure but I need to know what it was like for some other women). That will probably take place the week of June 10th (so we can complete our move first) and then hopefully within a week or so I'll have a diagnosis. I may be lucky and this may not actually be endometrial CA but the uncertainty is weighing on me (and my family). Of course, if it isn't cancer then they have to figure out what is causing the abnormal bleeding/cramping.

Hi sweetie,


I know how frustrating pathology can be. It was 3 path reports before I got consensus on my diagnosis . I never knew whether to be happy or sad from day to day.

On the D&C - I've had two - one after a miscarriage and the other after some irregular bleeding. It was same day surgery - gee in one case I was in at 6 and out before 10! I was sore for a few days, but really nothing else...

HI,
DON'T BE WORRIED ABOUT THE D & C , I HAD ONE IN OCT.2001

I WAS IN AT 7 A.M AND OUT BY 11:30 A.M

YOUR ASLEEP THE WHOLE TIME, NOT VERY LONG. BEFORE YA KNOW IT YOUR IN THE RECOVERY ROOM AND THEN IN A CHAIR
FOR ABOUT 1/2 HR.
I WENT HOME AND FELT FINE, I WAS NOT TOO SORE AT ALL.
WHAT IS BAD , IS THE WAITING, I WAITED 3 WEEKS FOR MY RESULTS AND IT WAS ENDO C. BUT VERY EARLY STAGES.
YOU MAY NOT WAIT THAT LONG AS MY GYNE WAS OUT OF TOWN FOR A WEEK.

IT'S NOT BAD, REALLY!!

The wait to hear a diagnosis is always so darn hard! But having the D and C done by a gyn onc. is a good idea and I am sure you will get a precise diagnosis. And your move will be over. Things are falling into place slowly but surely. I am thankful your original gyn did not do radical surgery all to find out it was not endometrial cancer. Here's hoping for the best! Let us know how it goes.

How Frustrating!


I'm also glad that this time you have a gyn/onc and it sounds as if she's a very good, careful one! With her, you will get good samples and an accurate result.

Waiting is THE worst! Hate waiting! The only consolation is that this time you know it'll be done correctly and you will know something for sure.
