Kassandra,

When there is abnormal bleeding and the uterine lining is thickened, they will always rule out uterine cancer. I went through a uterine biopsy since I had this issue also. Chances are everything will be ok in that respect. Try not to worry yourself sick over that at this point.

The D&C is really not that bad at all--seriously. You are out of it, and won't remember the procedure itself. Afterwards, you will have some cramping, but I was able to handle it with Tylenol.

As always, if you have any questions that I may be able to help with, don't hesitate :)

Kassandra-

I just wanted to say I am so sorry you are going through all of this. My thoughts are with you. Hopefully things will start to sort themselves out- stay strong.

Ugh. Really rough appointment. She started out by saying that she wanted to put me on some hormones to induce my period, so we could get the really thick lining of my uterus out.

Sorry about that Kassandra. :(:(:(

Kassandra,

I cant blame you for being scared....you're going through so much right now. :(

I actually felt better for you after reading Patti's post...so hopefully its somewhat reassuring. :)

The good thing is that you now have an obgyn who is not ignoring these things and that everything is getting addressed as far as the bleeding/thickened lining goes. I hope everything goes well....try not to get too stressed and once you get through this process you'll know more about whats going on. Chances are its not cancer....like Patti said. You'll be in my thoughts though....good luck with everything. :wub:

A quick run by, I made it to this side of the Pacific okay today--headed to bed with some Ambien as I really need to sleep.

Kassandra, I am sorry about all this happening at once but am glad the doctor is dealing with it, and hope it all goes smoothly as possible. Do you have the time yet?

Gosh Kassandra...seems like one thing after another! I'm so sorry!

Everyone,

I saw my GI yesterday. I thought I was going to have to talk him into doing an endoscopy, but he actually brought it up and suggested we should go ahead and get it checked out. For those that don't know (it was slightly before this thread), two years ago my PCP found blood in my stool. She suggested a colonoscopy and referred me to a GI. The GI decided to do an endoscopy at the same time to check out my villi (although I'd already been gluten free for several months).

During the endoscopy he found some things...minor damage to my esophagus, polyup in my stomach, but the biggest thing was a growth on my ampulla of vater (the opening where the bile and pancreatic duct meet and empty bile into the intestines. It's supposed to be the size of a pen tip, but mine was quite large. The equipment he used didn't allow him to reach it for a biopsy, so a week later I had another endoscopy so he could biopsy. Three labs (including Stanford) couldn't decide if it was precancerous or not. The GI put me on prilosec for a couple of months to see if reducing inflamation would help. So in a couple of months we did another endoscopy...he never really said what the labs said, he basically just said it was fine and that we didn't need to check unless I was feeling bad.

Meanwhile my PCP asks me everytime I go in for my annual exam about this. This year I asked her if it had turned to cancer would it appear on my bloodwork and her answer was that we didn't want to wait until it shows up in a blood test. She put in a referral for me (even though I don't need one, lol) for the GI.

He asked how I was feeling and I told him basically pretty good but am having ramdom pain from my ribcage down to my pelvic area...different places, different intensities, etc., and that I am also having the feeling like things are getting stuck in my esophagus--not food so much, but like pills and things. I didn't even mention doing another endoscopy but he suggested it was time to go in and check the ampulla! Phew, what a relief. It's been two years and by now we should have a clearer picture. He said while he's in there he'll check the esophagus too.

So I'm relieved...I feel like we'll finally know for sure what's going on.

On an even happier note...did I mention I'm going to Las Vegas?! :lol:

Donna,

When is vegas, ill drive up lol.

Kassandra,

They always want to rule out uterine cancer. They had me scared when i was in my 20's. We have an high incidence of it in my family. But luckily i never had it. But i do have an severly tilted uterus and they said having kids would be hard. So dont worry, im sure everything is going to be just fine.

Everyone,

Im on a mission to find an shower filter today lol

I hear ya about sticking to gluten-free diet and not really feeling better. I, too, have been gluten-free for a couple of years and yet still seem to react to food that is considered gluten-free. I was taking thyroid meds recently and felt bad, just as I did with other medications. The pharmacist looked up the common ingredients in all the meds I've had reactions too and found 1 common link = microcrystalline cellulose. Not only is this a filler in meds, but it's found in most foods including those which we consider GL. Here's the link I found which is very helpful... http://www.codexalimentarius.net/gsfaonlin...ails.html?id=16

Good luck!

Kassandra, just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts and I send my love :wub:

I was also encouraged after reading Patti and Paula's posts, sounds like they want to cover all bases and rule everything out.

Keep us posted as you can.

Donna, that's good news you are going to have the endoscopy to have the ampulla and your esophogus issues checked out :) Have you scheduled it yet?

Vegas??? When are you going?

Carla, have fun in Miami! You are always going somewhere :lol:

July 2 (nex Wednesday). I'd be lieing if I said I hadn't thought about the possibility of it already turning to cancer...especially with the cancer miasm that Anna found and the fact that some of my bloodwork is a little tiny bit off...none of which probably has anything to do with anything, but I'd still like to know why it was enlarged. :P

Have fun in Miamia.

:lol: :lol:

Donna--I'll be thinking about you :) Glad they're keeping good tabs on you ;)

Thank you! Me too, lol.

I don't blame you for being concerned.....I would be too. It will be nice to put this to rest, although it doesn't sound like a fun proceedure......course, are any of them fun? :huh:

Hi everyone,

I went to the ND today because my sinuses just don't seem to be gettting better AND I started having a bad earache last night. She used this special machine called a Frequency S...... Machine. Darn, I can't remember the name!!! But it transmits energy that tells your cells to kick it up a notch to do what they are supposed to do.

They used to use it in the early 1900's for Tuberculosis before ABX were used. It was very interesting! I wanted to research it some more, - but now I forgot the name!

So, any that along with Vit A drops (supposed to dry up the mucous membranes), an immune enhancer supplement, b12 shot, and steam inhalations using tea tree and eucolyptus.

I will let you know how it goes. She says this protocol has really been helping her sinus sufferers - like me - to kick the sinus infections without resorting to antibiotics.

I REALLY HOPE THIS WORKS!!! :D:D

Me too! I really hopes this works for you. As someone who had nearly constant sinus infections for 3 whole years, I know just how miserable it is!

Sounds promising April.

I used to get sinus infections pretty regularly, but thankfully haven't had one for at least a few years now.
