I am 51 years old and have been on tamoxafen for a little over three months for breast cancer. I was told by my oncologist that my periods would probably stop. I was recently tested and am not in menopause yet but have not had a period in three months. I have been having severe cramping and after transvaginal ultrasound, diagonosed with mild heterogeneous echogenicity of the endometrium with endometrial thickness measuring 1.1 cm in thickness. I had an ultrasound the first of the year and my results were completely normal. My gynecologist is planning a D&C, hystesrcopic surgery and possible endomitrium ablitation. After doing countless research, I have never read anywhere that endomitrium abliation was done for not bleeding. Tomaxafen is known to thicken your lining and also can cause endometrium cancer. I believe I read somewhere that if you have an endomitrium biopsy you should not have your lining removed until is is determined whether it is cancer. My doctor tells me he will examine the lining (tissue, whatever) before deciding on endomitrium ablitation. I'm so confused. Any thoughts on the above would be truely appreciated.
