I have been diagnosed after a D&C and endometrial abblasion with complex endometrial hyperplasia with atypia even though two endometrial biopsies in the past 6 months came up negative.
The cancer hospital's next step is a complete hysterectomy and oopherectomy. The concern I have is I also have stage 4 endometriosis.
I am 48 years old and have experienced abnormal uterine bleeding in the past year. I was diagnosed with stage 4 endo 10 years ago, and at the time they didn't want to do a hysterectomy because it would have been fairly complicated because of the infiltration into the bowels, cul de sac, bladder, ect.
Should I be asking for an expert at recognising the different forms of endometriosis as well or will the surgical oncologist automatically have that skill through their experiences with hysterectomies and cancer?
