Hi

Somebody will be by soon to speak to you in more detail, I am sure. I'm no expert, that's for sure, but I don't see anything alarming in what your report says. I think it describes the uterine lining and the stage of ovulation and says that it looks like there was some viral (Herpes?) thing going on there at some time.

Sorry I can't be more helpful, I know these things can be worrisome. It's important to go over it with your

Jayleen:

Part of most path reports include a "final diagnosis" which should explain much of what was found.

Your uterus was big, definitely. It was twice the size of mine! I'm not sure that I have an explanation of the "nodules" -- were you given a diagnosis for that? I suppose they could be consistent with the same disease process that leads to fibroids. "Hemorrhagic endometrium" explains your bleeding, and that you were probably actively bleeding at the time of your surgery (or getting ready to). Your ovary sounds like it had a corpus luteum cyst, possibly old, and possibly getting ready to rupture.

The cervix sounds like the findings may have been consistent with human papilloma virus, which often can lead to cervical cancer. Here are a couple of links with excellent information about HPV: https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...threadid=95708 , and https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...threadid=90572 . This report sounds as though you may have had an HPV attack at some time, though it may now have been inactive.

Do ask for the final diagnosis from the path report...that's what will tell you the most about what is going on. In the meanwhile, I hope all is going well, and that you remember those first eight weeks are EARLY recovery...the process takes a while longer to complete, and you still need to take care of yourself as you resume your normal activities.

Hope this helps...
