Ok a little about me. I am 51 African American, morbidly obese and had a uterine ablation a year ago this month. I had surgery 14 years ago to remove fibroids which were so huge my doctor took. Photos of them for me and future patients to see. one was the size of a basketball. I fared well afterwards. A few years after I was having problems and an ultra sound revealed fibroids were back. I was obese then but not morbidly so. I developed and was treated for DCIS (early stage breast cancer) in 2005. Got through that and then fell into depression and lost my job, home, car everything. In 2008 my father and mother died. I lost my sister the following Feb and just this past December my mentall ill brother whom I cared for was murdered. I am still fighting the depression some days I can not leave my room I am so sad.
Last April I had an ablation because I was bleeding and because the doctors were not able to do a successful pap on me.
I stopped bleeding for a few months then it started again. As I have been dealing with my brothers death, I haven't seen the doctor but have an appointment in the next 10 days to find out why. I bleed almost everyday. I might have a few days off and then I bleed some more.
Doctor said I something about fsh doesn't show me in menopause. I am worried that this is really bad. I want to have a hysterectomy but I have sleep apnea and I am scared I won't wake up . I had a huge panic attack after the ablation and could not breathe.
