Heloo Ladies, After 23 yrs of being on wonderful Tibolone/Livial and at the ageof 71yrs, I suddenly noticed Iwas getting a slight watery blood smeared discharge each day with a very mild aching in my lower tummy. As we were on holiday I waited until the next week and then saw my GP. She referred me to our local hospital where a month ago after a hysteroscopy plus biopsy, then a pelvic MRI scan - an Endometrial Cancer was discovered in my uterus. What a shock that was I knew the risk of long term use of this type of HRT but never thought it could happen to me. Two weeks ago I had a total hysterectomy removing the uterus, tubes and ovaries. The gynacologist is reasonably convinced that the cancerwas caused by the long term use of Tibolone/Livial but as I presented to him in the early stages, it didn't appear to have spread beyond the lining. He is looking towards a positive outcome. We are now just waiting for the pathology reports to confirm this. Just wanted everyone on this type of HRT be aware of any changes they may notice going on and see your doctor if something doesn't seem right. If all goes well and say, in 8 weeks time I am hoping to return to Tibolone as my consultant has said, "There is nothing left for it to harm and if this HRT makes you feel good I have no objections to you taking it". Amazing! Best wishes, LadyPink
