My daughter, age 39, has almost constant bleeding or spotting throughout the month, bleeding after intercourse, and heavy bleeding and cramping when she has her period. She also has cramping throughout the month. She was going to have a hysterectomy, but was advised and agreed to an ablation instead. Lots of things factored in - mostly the time off work (loss of income) and recovery from hysterctomy. All valid. The gyn knows about my history.
I don't know much about ablation. I do know I would feel a heck of a lot better if I knew whether the tissue removed is sent to pathology or not. Does anyone know? She's had some kind of a biopsy but she doesn't know what.
I do intend to help her prepare a list of questions. The surgery hasn't been scheduled and won't be until after the first of the year.
