Advice for diagnosis of Endometrial Hyperplasia and bleeding
Hi, it's nice to find a support network like this. I'm a 51 yof who is in menopause and I have been for about 2 years now. I stopped having periods about a year and a half ago, outside of spotting here and there. I began having midline backpain that goes into my buttocks and sometimes down my right leg. I had a transvaginal ultrasound that showed 14 mm thickening of uterine tissue. I went to my ob/gyn yesterday and up until then I had not had very much bleeding/spotting. Yesterday she told me she felt I am in a grey area of menopause and she is scheduling for a endometrial biopsy. I am very scared because I'll be awake but they will be giving me loopy oral meds that they say will help me relax. I'm very worried because the very next day I began having more than spotting, almost like the beginning of a period with breast tenderness. I have severe midline back pain somedays and I believe it is due to potential endometriosis. I had 3 C-sections in the past. I just don't understand what is happening and am so worried. Has anyone else had these symptoms? Anyone had the endometrial biopsy while awake but given oral relaxation meds?
