How are you all doing? Hope recoveries are going well x
I've just been been told I need a hysterectomy to stop constant bleeding. The bleeding is not excessive just a trickle constantly and I have stomach and back ache all the time. If the doc tries to do a smear I just start bleeding so they can't do one. I've had an internal ultra sound scan which showed nothing nasty going on just a tiny, tiny fibroid. I am going through the menapause at 53 and using HRT. When the consultant examined me at the hospital the pain was excruciating. I've never known anything like it and the tears streamed down my face from the pain. Then she said my best option would be a hysterectomy as the womb just bleeds when touched. This was Monday and I still have pain since the exam. Never known pain like it.
I've agreed to go ahead with surgery but just wondered what made other people decide to go ahead? I'm questioning if my symptoms are severe enough to proceed really. It seems very extreme for discomfort and bleeding. I'd be really interested in your thoughts.
