Upcoming hysterectomy 12/2: Is this pain normal? (complex hyperplasia with no atypia; spotting with bowel movements)

I'm new here and I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy on December 2nd. I'm 61 years old, have been post menopausal for about 10 years and have been on HRT that whole time. Over the last few months I have had some bleeding, have had several ultrasounds and then a biopsy which showed complex hyperplasia with no atypia. I have a history of fibroids and my uterus is enlarged with a thickened lining. My doctor put me on double doses of progesterone and then megace but that didn't thin my lining, just made me feel terrible, made me cramp and bleed and I finally said that's enough. I have a question for anyone else who might be in my age category with similar circumstances. I am currently spotting, but only it seems when I have a bowel movement, as though that puts pressure on my uterus and that's what pushes the blood out. But I'm having cramping like I used to get when I was having periods. ...low back pain, pain down my legs, pain in my abdomen, particularly lower left abdomen. Could this be from my enlarged uterus, from the hyperplasia, or....? I went to the ER a couple weeks ago and they did a CT scan with contrast of my whole abdomen which was completely normal except for the uterine stuff. I'm really over this and can't wait for Dec 2nd!! Thank you for reading this long post!

Hi Lifeat61 : to HysterSisters!

I am so glad you found this site!

I wish I could answer your question, but I cannot. We do have lots of ladies on this site, so hopefully one with similar experience to your own will see this post and respond.

Hi! I didn't have the exact symptoms as you but some similar. At 58, I still hadn't gone through menopause but didn't have a period for 5 months then all of a sudden did. I too had a big fibroid . US showed thickened lining. d&C showed hyperplasia no atypia. Hysterectomy in August. Path came back adenocarcinoma. Glad I went through with the surgery. I'm now recovering from oophorectomy. Hoping all goes well with your surgery .

Perhaps I can answer your concern about spotting with your bowel movements. I had that too; my doctor said it was a hemorrhoid, caused by my fibroid-enlarged uterus pressing on my iliac vein - the one that comes out of the small intestine. After my surgery, it completely went away, as it likely will,for you. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery!

Just now seeing this reply. I'm new here and didn't realize anyone had responded. Your story is scary to me because nobody wants to find out later that it was actually cancer. How are you doing now? My doctor said my chances of having a cancer diagnosis is very low...around 1%, but still.....

The bleeding I get is actually vaginal, not from the rectum. Thank you for your reply~~

I'm doing well. No more cancer was found ! I have to say, this recovery was a bit longer- scorer near belly button and incisions. Hindsight, wished I had ovaries out with hysterectomy but who knew! Looks like your date is tomorrow? Have you decided if you will keep ovaries or not? I hope all goes very well for you!

I'm so glad to hear no more cancer was found. Yes, we are planning to take everything out. I haven't updated my profile but my doctor said for sure he thought we should take the ovaries and everything else, and I agree. My surgery is tomorrow. I'm really tired of the cramping and not being able to take Ibuprofen, so at this point I'm ready to get it over with! I hope I can remain calm tomorrow!!
