Hello Everybody, just wondered if anyone has been in the same situation as me ............. I'm 59, overweight and diabetic (found out 3 years ago after being hospitalised with cellulitus for the first time) and have recently been told that I need to have a total hysterectomy. Its been explained to me that at 'my age' I should either be well into menopause or past menopause! I recently had a normal smear result but because I mentioned to the nurse that I still roughly every 4 weeks or so have a slight show/bleed they say this isnt normal and over the past month have had internal scans/biopsies which resulted in an initial diagnosis of polyps and was originally booked in for their removal, but days before the operation having reviewed the biopsies this was cancelled and I had an MRI instead which confirmed that I have cell changes in the lining of my womb and because they class these as pre-cancerous changes and not being able to foretell when they could evolve I need to have everything removed!! Its been a rollercoaster month of tests,stress and worry and to say I am scared is an understatement. I have read some of your postings Ladies and I realise that I am not alone in having to have this done but my worry is because of my size and of healing, blood clots and infection because having had cellulitus 3 times now in 3 years I know how quickly infection can spread and to know that I am allergic to certain I.V. antibiotics is also a big concern. Sorry to go on but I would be very grateful to hear if anyone has had similar concerns. Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings :o)
