Hello: 4 days ago, I had operative hysteroscopy and resectoscope surgery. They found a very large polyp with stem and also a smaller polyp and removed both. I started to feel better yesterday, but today woke up with 100.5 fever and stronger uterine pain. Not really cramps-burning pain. They did give me an antibiotic during surgery. I have borderline sub-class immune deficiency and seem to get infection consistently in other parts of my body.
I left a message for my MD-just curious if anyone has had this after surgery. Is this consistent with recovery? They gave me 10 darvocet pills, which I finished today, esp. with increased pain-no other medication.
I am hoping to wait until Monday to see Gyn-we literally have NO money for any ER visits-insurance we have is not great.
I am going to have a large endometrial polyp that I will have removed (along with thickened uterine lining) soon. They are doing it via resectoscope/hysteroscopy. I had a hysto years ago, but it is hard to remember how I felt afterwards. Has anyone had these two procedures? If so, did it help and did the polyp come back? I had a uterine biopsy (OUCH is all I have to say about that!) and it came back normal. They also saw a pretty good sized ovarian cyst (i have had cysts/tumors on the ovaries before). I am going to specialist who can perform the resectoscope.
Hello! They will be doing the resectoscope/hysteroscopy in the OR-due to the size of the polyp and rich blood supply. I have never been skinny-but I am about 10 lbs heavier than the last time I had the endomemtrial thickening-I was fairly normal weight then and having a lot of infertility issues. I am thinking I wasn't ovulating. It took 3 years to have my first child (after m/c) and then 1 1/2 years with the second. I have had dermoid tumors, cysts and multiple surgeries.
Yes, the biopsy was not fun-since I never gave birth (or ever dilated during pregnancy-had c-sections-emergency)-my cervix was sealed shut! it took forever to get through as I grabbed the table. I can't take ibuprofen due to allergies (compromised immune system and allergy-on top of all of this), so I was not having fun.
The path report from the biospy was "negative" according the message left by the office. So, now need to get this polyp out and clean it all up. I was bleeding horribly.
Thank you for your reply and all you do on the boards!View Thread
I went in for my annual (which I was late on scheduling) last week. I had been having very heavy bleeding during my period-going through super, super OB's and a pad in less than an hour for the first 3 days. My cycles also went from 5 days to 10 plus and then days of spotting. He did a transvaginal ultrasound and saw what he described as a "very, very large polyp". He said the area all around it had severely thickened and the polyp looked like it had been there awhile. It has a very hearty blood supply. He has ordered a biopsy next week, however he said if it came back with hyperplasia, he would likley recommend a hysterectomy.
If there is no hyperplasia-he said he can't remove the polyp-a different specialist will have to-due to its size and chance of causing major bleeding.
My question is-with a very large polyp like this-what are the chances they will end up doing a hysterectomy anyway, due to bleeding and maybe the way the uterus will react after its removal? And if a hysterectomy may be needed, am I a candidate for laparoscopic? I have had 4 abdominal surgeries-two c/s; one laparotomy for ovarian tumors and a laparoscopy for severe adhesions that had twisted my ovaries and stuck them to my intestines. I had read due to previous surgeries, etc. some doctors would prefer open hysterecomy.
Thank you in advance! I am 41-with two children, both via emergency c/s due to pre-eclampsia.View Thread
