What is going on?

I have had post menopausal bleeding (blood stained discharge for 2 1/2 years now. I'm 66 years old.

I had a hysteroscopy a year ago which found nothing - the gyno was pretty casual - his words "what can I say - women bleed" when I asked where would the bleeding be coming from.

Because of recent lower abdominal pain and backache I have just been for an ultrasound which found a "hot spot" (explained as a red spot low down in the uterus). No-one has explained what it may be. The endometrius is estimated at between 4-5 mm thick. A biopsy was normal, but the bleeding continues and unlike a period, it is there every day, though some days are worse than others. Think I'll have to wear a pad for the rest of my life.

Not sure whether to just leave it or not. No-one seems too concerned.

    I would push to have a D&C done.
    All of my many early biopsies were 'non-diagnostic' or 'inconclusive', and it wasn't until I had a D&C that my cancer was diagnosed/confirmed. I suggest that you push to have a D&C done, so that they can do pathology on a large tissue sample and you can get a definitive diagnosis and put your mind at ease. The D&C may even help with the bleeding. BIG HUGS!
