    Dear Kerry...it's very stressful isn't it....I've had 4 lots of polyps removed via hysteroscopies, all polyps were not cancerous ( they are mostly not cancer).

    so try not to worry, you doctors are just being cautious and you want to get rid of the polyp anyway if you've been spotting or had tummy pain. Also if you're having a D &C they won't scape all your lining (endometrium).... That's called an ablation.

    Take deep breaths, distract yourself with things you like doing, you will be fine x

    I am so sorry you are going through this. Every time I have a test or procedure, I worry myself sick!! So you are in good company there. Please let us know how everything goes on Wednesday. Lots of women have gone through these procedures. You can get lots of support here. Just keep posting as much as you need to. (( hugs))
