I am so thankful for you gals. In the educating myself mode...had a little emergency visit yesterday to my gyn for abnormal bleeding...I'm Almost 58, post menopausal. Had the sono and biopsy...now awaiting. 7 to 10 days! Ohhhh Lordy! And today...hum, have that symptom...that one too....now that I think about it all. When I called yesterday because I found frank blood, I pressed the number for an appt...and fortunately got disconnected...then when I called back, the machine once again said, "Press 2 for abnormal bleeding"...I didn't the first time, heck, it's an OB/GYN place, and I certainly wasn't pregnant! But the second time I though Heck YEAH, That's why I'm calling, and when I did, they got me in the next day, and I had the ultra sound, wall was too thick, and then the biopsy. Had my pants down three times in one visit. That's a record! Wish I would have asked her what she found during the physical exam. I didn't think to.
So glad for the comment about staying off the web. Although it was good ole Dr's Oz's site that encouraged an apt right away, while bleeding was active. What I feel I've done is get on one of those moving walkways. I'm on it standing still and moving.
What I have gotten here is a frame work for vocabulary and what to do at visits...my hubby will definately go with me to the next one...and I just thank you.
For all your courage and for being here.
