I am 34 years old. My last son was born in may 2003, after which I immediatly began having the heaviest periods ever. My periods were heavy enough to make me anemic, so my gyn at the time did some testing which revealed nothing abnormal. No fibroids, polyps, nothing. I was given the choice of a hysterectomy or endometrial ablation. I chose the ablation. After the procedure I developed an infection, and my periods were normal again. (even though he said I wouldn't have any, but normal was waaay better than what I was having) Within the first year after the ablation I began having a watery discharge, no odor but it was always there and severe cramping in my abdomen and back all the time, not to mention my hair falling out, vision getting blurred and mind blowing headaches. My gyn said the discharge was sympathetic, whatever that means? and that the other symptoms were probably hormonal imbalance. I suggested having tests ran to see what was not balanced but was told it was too costly and time consuming. Since then the cramping is still here on almost a daily basis not to mention worse when I do try to be intimate. So to a new gyn I went, my pap came back normal and the ultrasounds revealed a fibroid, polyp, ovarian cyst, and abnormal cells in the endo. What does that mean? The report recommends for me to have a hysterosonogram. Isn't this just another picture of what they already seen? So my questions are where did all this stuff grow from if the endo lining was removed during the ablation? and why take more pictures? Plus what does abnormal cell growth mean, I assume its not more fibroids or polyps since they obviously know what those looked like in there. I am really starting to worry, because I got the results from the nurse because the dr. is out of office till next week. Could this be cancer? I am the oldest female in my family to still have all here reproductive equipment, and female cancers are all over in my family.
any help suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated
