Are bless you mate - l really hope you get on ok if possible let me know mate or send us a pm

Yours sound similar to mine but the pain was horrific had it in back legs stomach and pelvic bone ..

Menstral cycle way out of zinc

But may be thats what my GP will do with me as she did mention a Gynecologist but to have scan first.


Cooper Report 20 Sep 2010 15:54

Hi im glad you have had your scan,
The GP wil probably refer you to a gynae consultant and based on your scan results they will work out a plan of care,
Ingrid is right about the laparoscopy, it is the next step in seeing what is going on. The consultant may want to run some more blood tests unless the GP has already done them.
Keep us posted

Jules, dont know how old you are, but if you have had all the children you want, if given the option, have a hysterectomy. You will feel real benefit from it. I have blessed the day I had mine 27 yrs ago, as they found suspicious cells there and if they hadnt my cancer would never have been found at the next consultation. Have really benefitted.

Are bless you again thank you for your message mate.

I am not sure what i would do although i will never have any more children.

But my doctor and the gynecologist said they either do a part or a full and it is all done via keyhole

I am not sure if anyone else has heard of this so i am not sure really what the difference is :-

And which one would be more beneficial long term so i may have to have a long chat with my GP

Hi Everyone

Just to let you all know my doctors surgery have just rung me

I have been booked an appointment to see my GP next Wednesday 6th October at 10.00 am

Seems my results need to be discussed ...

Will keep you all informed

From my memory, a partial hysterectomy means that they will leave your ovaries in place, otherwise you have an instant menopause. Keyhole surgery means just that, the smallest possible wound. Good luck, whatever.

Hya Claire just seen up date . discuss how you feel yourself & get a full answer . you will be fine good luck Barbara x

Just found your update.
Not to long now and you will know where your at.
As Barbara said, Ask lots of questions and make sure you get them answered. Write them down as you think of them over the next week so you don't forget any.
Will keep you in my thoughts.
Good Luck.

Hi Everyone

Just a little update as promised :-

Went to my doctors this morning where my GP told me scan showed a small fibroid ...

However this would not have caused all the problems i first showed up in A and E with :-

So i have now been referred back to Gynaecology and i have appointment to see them in November

Wow what a quick appointment - Doctor said it is up to gynacologist but in light off all my symptoms ...

That when i am there they will probably offer me the option of having the womb burned away with micro surgery it is similar to a hysterectomy however they no longer do that operation

So it looks like i should no more next month when i have seen the gynaecologist ..

Doctor has also prescribed Tranexamic acid tablets at 500mg a tablet and i have to take two three times a day - which i am only to take when i am having my menstrual cycle.

I have tried to google this micro surgery option which takes the womb away but cant find much out about it

So if anyone could help me with this i would be most grateful so i have a bit more information for when i go to see the gynacologist next month

Do you think this is it Claire

Micro-invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

Micro-Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis Laparoscopy is the most common procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis, requiring minimal invasive surgery and typically performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Any visible endometriosis implants and scar tissue that may be causing pain or infertility are likely to be removed.

The procedure is usually done at an outpatient facility, although the surgery occasionally requires a hospital stay of a day. Patients are able return to their normal activities in one to two weeks. In comparison to open abdominal surgery, laparoscopic surgery results in less tissue trauma and scarring, smaller incisions, and can be performed on an outpatient basis with a shorter recovery time.
