Post menopausal bleeding

Posted , 2 users are following.

l have been12 years post menopause when l had some bleeding it didn't last long but it was accompanied with abdo cramps so l went to my gp he referred me to a gynaecologist and took blood tests also checking foe cancer markers and a scan. All of which were normal. I have had no recurrence of bleeding saw the specialist who has booked me in for a hysteroscopy / d & c. However, at the same time my surgery for hip replacement has come up l will probably have the genealogy op very close after my hip op. Nothing l can do about it as l am a public patient. I do not want to cancel my hop op any suggestions???

      Hi Kerry,

      The problem is that a total hip replacement means that l cannot have my hip in certain positions without a risk of it becoming dislodged. As you and l know gynae ops are in the lithotomy position ie legs in the air. I just cannot risk it, my hip has been badly for years.

      lt would be fine if the d&c could be done first .......but l don't like my chances of that happening. What to do??
