Help please!
Dec 29, 2013
Here is what is happening: On Dec 3rd, I went to the GYN (the 1st time I've gone in 6 years, it's complicated but it's a fact). I told her that I was nervous because my sister was diagnosed with cervical cancer at 24, and that is what actually made me avoid the GYN like the plague (even though it should have had the opposite effect). Anyway, she said that my uterus was enlarged and based on my strange periods, she sent me for a transvaginal ultrasound.

Side note about periods: Since I had my son and a Tubal Ligation 7 years ago, I've had weird periods. They start out as a normal period and then after they end I go into "period phase 2," at least that's what I call it. :) Basically, I start having dark brown discharge. It continues for anywhere from 2-9 days. The dr I saw after my son was born blamed it on my hypothyroidism.

Back to present: I went for the ultrasound on Dec 9th. On the 16th, my dr had me come back in. She said that the ultrasound indicated that my uterine lining was 12mm (1st day of LMP was 11/22). My left ovary was also enlarged and had a large cyst on it. She was mostly concerned with my thick lining. She scheduled me for a D&C on 1/7. She said the possibilities are: polyps, endometrial hyperplasia, or uterine cancer. Then she said, "Whatever the results, we'll get through this together." What the heck is that?! So, I am terrified and basically looking to get some encouragement. Also, I'm wondering if I should get a second opinion before the D&C? Thanks for your help!

BTW: I am a 30 yo and have had 4 children and 3 miscarriages. Not sure if this is relevant or not, but wanted to include it just in case.
