Endometrial Polyps

Posted , 7 users are following.

Has anyone been diagnosed with endometrial polyps? I've had these my whole life, but my new doctor says I should have them removed. Since this is surgery that requires putting you under, I am hesitant. Plus this only bled once for one weekend after menopause. 

Sometimes I think it will just create more problems and I should leave them alone.

    Hi, Debbie,

    I can understand that you're hesitant.  Surgery is a scary thought.  Since you haven't had any trouble yet, I can understand why you'd want to pospone.  But, some things don't get better.  Endometrial polyps can grow and cause all sorts of problems, pain and bleeding for one thing.  

    I'm not sure whether they can become cancerous.  Someone with more experience with polyps might comment on that.

    Best of luck to you, and I'm sure that you'll make the correct decision for you at this time.  xx

    My name is Michelle in menopause I don't no if I have an answer but I had a transvaginal ultrasound which showed fluid in my cervix. The gyno who gave me the test said everything is fine. I went to another gyno and he said he wants to do a procedure that puts me under. I'm terrified and think the doctor wants to make $$$$

    What do you think? Thanks Michelle

      Hi Michelle,

      They are so routine with their tests and surgeries. Right away they want to cut things out.

      i read you other thread too. As far as fluid on the cervix...did they do a cervical biopsy? How was the Pap smear?

      ive read some things where people declined the removal of non-cancerous polyps and never had another problem.

      i mean, I didn't even agree to the surgery and was told to make a "pre-op" appt with the surgeon. Who said I agreed to this?

      keep me posted.

      i work in a medical school and am very close to the gyn's. I will see what they say about fluid on the cervix. Never heard of it before today.

      Hi, Michelle,

      I meant to reply to your other thread, sorry.  I am wondering if the doctor said there was fluid accumulating above your cervix.  The cervix is essentially a passageway between your uterus and your vagina. The reason for the fluid could be because you have an irritation or an infection or some other reason.

      I think the doctor's wondering why you're accumulating fluid, and the reasons for it.  He may want to do a hysteroscopy to be able to view the top of your cervix and the inside of your womb, and perhaps to do a cervical and uterine biopsy.

      Perhaps the doctor is concerned and trying to be thorough?  I had to have a hysterectomy last year, that was extremely timely.  I am very grateful that my doctor was concerned for me.

      Best of luck to you! xx

      Thanks for your response. I had a Pap test in October 13 2016 and it was normal. Then I had a transvaginal ultrasound which showed small cysts and fluid in the cervix. These were the readings from the radiologist. I called the gynecologist and spoke with his nurse and wanted to double check if the doctor said anything abnormal about fluid in my cervix and he documented everything was fine. I only went to him once so I don't no how thourough he is. But his nurse said nothing to worry about. Yesterday I saw the gynecologist who gave me my Pap test and he said he cannot check my cervix for fluid because it's small due to menopause and that he would have to diolate my cervix in the hospital under anesthesia which I'm terrified of and look and see if he sees anything abnormal. What's your thoughts? I'm a healthy women in menopause. I heard fluid in the cervix is nothing to be concerned about. What's your advice. ?Thank you. Michelle. BTW....what do you no and think of out patient medical centers? Is anesthesia safe?

    I'm going in tomorrow for a hysteroscopy as they think I have a uterine polyp. I also have 2 fibroids. They are going to remove the polyp whilst I'm there. It's being done with gas and air and possibly a local. They tell me a general isn't necessary. I've agreed with it because there is a bit of doubt that it's a polyp and they need to check it anyway but I am a bit anxious. I'll let you know how I get on and if it's easier than you imagine!
