Endometrial biopsy
May 10, 2010
For the past month I've had light post-menopausal bleeding. Went to gyn, did pap smear and internal exam. Today had hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy. Have to wait 2 wks for results. Going crazy worrying myself sick about results coming back as cancer. Don't know how I will get through these 2 wks.

Has anyone had post-menopausal bleeding which was not cancer? I wish she would have at least found a polyp or fibroid when she did the hysteroscopy because I think I would have hope of it not being cancer but the doctor said everything looked fine.....
Hoping that your results put you in the clear! Sorry that you are so stressed as you await your results. It is kinda mean how hard it is to wait for important test results. I know that endometrial biopsy continues to be a diagnostic tool used so that the doctor doesn't have to do a D&C under sedation and all that unless needed. But I just can't trust them any longer. I have had two in the past few years that were inaccurate when they said I was in the clear and turns out, there were bad things going on with my lining, which they found after doing a D&C. You are not me, so I would just say to you to follow up and to keep an eye on things, especially if your bleeding continues. All kinds of good luck, dear!

[QUOTE=deedee25;4251321]cg01, I'm so sorry to hear of your bad news! Hopefully, it will be confined and the surgery will just take care of everything. Do you have somebody to support you through this ordeal?

I made the appointment for my biopsy, which is this coming week. I am worried too, and it looks like they keep you in suspense with the results.[/QUOTE]

Thank you for your kindness. Yes, I live with my sister who is trying to support me but she is, of course, a "nervous wreck" and not sure how much help she will be but she will go with me to the hospital and stay in the room overnight with me. Tomorrow, I will find out more from the doctor.

Good luck with your biopsy. It will be over before you know it. Yes, they do keep you in suspense with the results. I had to wait almost 2 wks.

I'll be thinking of you and wishing you well.
[QUOTE=deedee25;4254540]So, I had the biopsy today. I took the Motrin before the appointment and it didn't hurt nearly as much as I anticipated. Now for the waiting. The doctor said that I would hear in about 2 weeks.[/QUOTE]

The waiting is the hardest part .... I, too, had to wait almost 2 wks for the results. Sending you good thoughts and prayers that everything is fine.
