Hi Susan,
It sounds complicated and more risky, I wish I could of tolerated the biopsy that was attempted in the office. I've also read that D&C aren't being preformed as much as in the past is that true? Im on the fence about it because if my lining isn't unusually thick why can't just a sample be taken instead of cleaning the whole uterus. I do know that my lining was 7.5. About making too much estrogen I'm overweight and excessive
Fat turns into estrogen that combined with continual
Bleeding leads both gynecologist I've seen come to the conclusion that I make too much of one harmone
Not enough of the other (progesterone). I also have other risk factors for uterine cancer; type II diabetes, have had long heavy periods starting at a young age, (and still this late in life as well) I haven't been on the pill for more than five years. I'm white. On the other hand, I did have to kids and we don't have a history of those cancers in our family. If I do the procedure at the end of the month It won't be general anesthesia, but I'm told I won't know what's going on. I'm nervous because it sounds so invasive and painful.
Thank you.
