Cancer: Uterine Message Board

Cancer: Uterine Board Index

I asked my doctor why a uterus would enlarge after menopause and she said most likely it would be a fibroid tumor, and sometimes they grow very large! She told me instead of removing the fibroid, they just remove the uterus. I don't have a problem with that.

What kind of biopsy did they do? Was it painful? I've had cervical biopsies taken on 3 occasions and managed those just fine. I've had several vaginal ultrasounds so I know those are not a big deal.

I guess I'm lucky with the medical system in the US. The radiologists office called to schedule the ultrasound in less than 2 hours, and I have it on March 25th. Quick work! I'm really not worried about it. My mother had several different kinds of cancer so my doctors tend to be overly cautious.

My best friend just had a robot assisted hysterectomy and she said it was quick and easy. She didn't even need any pain pills afterwards. Ibuprofen worked fine. I hope it is as easy for you!

Thank you for your answers! I'll keep you posted.
