I wanted to update with my ultrasound results since I picked them up today. Not sure what to make of this but am even more confused and nervous I guess you could say.
First ultrasound done on November 5, 2008 - had been abnormal bleeding at this point since October 24th and this stopped a week after the ultrasound on November 12th. Was not a heavy bleed but constant bleeding present.
Results - Uterus measures 10.2 x 4.3 x 5.9 cm in size. A 7mm hypoechoic uterine fibroid is identified near the uterine fundus posteriorly. The endmetrial strip is slighty irregular measuring 10mm in thickness. No focal lesion is identified within the confines of the endometrium. There is a simple cyst on the right ovary measuring 15.cm. Left ovary is normal in appearance. No free fluid within the pelivis. No abnormal adnexal mass.
So then I had an ultrasound done on November 21st. I did not know it but I started to bleed 4 days after this ultrasound - and think this might be my period. This was evaluated by a new radiologist.
Results - Complete transvaginal examination shows no change in the appearance of the endometrial stripe, which is still prominent measuring up to 16mm in thickness. There is color Doppler arterial flow seen within the endometrial stripe. Cause and significance cannot be determined and a sonohysterogram is recommended for further evaluation.
There is no change in 7mm hypoechoic uterine fibroid near the uterine fundus posteriorly.
Both ovaries are again within normal limits with a small right ovarian follice. There is no adnexal mass, no fluid in the cul-de-sac.
So now I'm also worried about the color Doppler and what the means. I knew they did it because I could hear it when they were doing the ultrasound - couldn't see anything but know they did it both ultrasounds. It is not mentioned in the first one - but I think that they did see something on the first one cuz she kept doing the Doppler when she was looking towards the left side (Or it seemed like she was looking towards the left side)
Any ideas what that is? My doctor didn't say anything to me about it either. I am also mad that they never even told me from the FIRST ultrasound that there was thickness present or a cyst on the ovary or the fibroid. They just said that they couldn't evaluate anything and I needed to have it repeated. UUGGGHHHH healthcare!
