I am 51 and thought I was going through regular menopause. I had random periods for two years. When I had one it was heavy. In may I had one extremely heavy period but no pain. My gynecologist did a vaginal ultrasound and found that the wall was thickening again...two weeks later I had another period but it was not nearly as heavy...just painful. He decided to do a biopsy to be safe but could not because my cervix was nearly closed. He then scheduled to put me to sleep and try to dilate the cervix to get the biopsy and do a D and C. He again was unable to get through the cervix and punctured a hole in the wall. I have now been referred to an oncologist gynecologist who wAnts to do a robotic hysterectomy. I am bloated, uncomfortable, suffering with backaches and cramping...none of which I had before. I am making myself sick worrying about what is going on.View Thread
