I got a very large fibroid and polyp (myoectomy) removed under general anesthesia 5 days ago. I'm also am in menopause. The mass was blocking my cervix. I would have had no idea about it, but I had tremendous bleeding resulting in an ER visit while on vacation a month ago. When I've had heavy bleeding in the past, I get this pinch in my uterus. I was told that there wouldn't be any pain after a day and just some spotting.
I've had a light period for 4 days (4 pads a day), and I've worked out taking 800 mg of Advil 4 times a day. The pinch feeling is still there. Now at day 5, I have a watery "period." The pinching gets so bad that I'm really bent over. Since I live alone in a large building, I have a walker, which I now have to use.
This is depressing! Right before this happened, I took 5 exercise classes in 3 days and was fine. Now, I can't leave my apartment and can't drive because I'm really bent over and exhausted.
When I do my follow-up in a week, my gyn wants to look into doing a biopsy since my uterus lining is thick. I'd think that with all this bleeding that it would have washed everything out. Because I have limited care from family (only one sibling who is out-of-state), I'm thinking I'm not getting this done.
What would anyone suggest? Should I go for a second opinion? The trans vag did indicate my uterine wall thickness. I have no idea what's going on and can call the doctor but can't leave my apartment because I'm not walking well and am in pain right now.
