Having a biopsy of my endometrium uterus
I went to my OBGYN and saw my Dr that has been going through my endometriosis... She set up date 2/22/2013 for a biopsy of my endometrium to rule out cancer...
The reason is because of my bleeding only 10 after my last period. I started again having it for 8 days straight.. Plus every month my periods have been really off like 6 to 4 days early with severe pain in between periods....  I have been in a lot of pain and having pain in my chest and still have nerve pain going down my left side finger tips to my feet...still having a low temperature of 98.9 to 99.9....if the biopsy comes back good then she wants to do ablation in my endometrium area.
I have heard horrible story's about getting ablation of my uterus, because they ended up having more pain and bleed outside of the uterus..They end up getting a full hysterectomy... I really cant afford to go the long route and end up with having hysterectomy...

What do you think if it comes back good results and I hope they do...
should I get the Ablation of my uterus???

The decision to have an ablation is a discussion you should have with your doctor.  I can tell you that many of my patients have had endometrial ablations and done very well.  Ablations work better for bleeding than they do for pain and bleeding and I have had patients that had both (pain & bleeding) in which the ablation did not resolve the pain.  In these instances some of those patients elected to have a hysterectomy.  J.
