Hi, I’ve joined this page only minutes ago after being in the dr’s 5 hrs ago. Do you mind me asking how it all came about for you? I’m post menopause (I went through an early one at 41yrs old, I’m now 49) I had tests on Tuesday & today was told I need surgery. The uterus lining is thicker than it should be but there’s also a large growth on the cervix. I have a brand new private hospital just opened minutes away from me & have been referred there. I must’ve missed them this afternoon so I’m expecting a call back tomorrow, I hope! My dr advised the lump will be taken straight off & they’ll do a d&c of the uterus, depending on the cell count (????) will determine if a scrape is enough or a hysterectomy. Oh I’m in Melbourne by the way but would be good to even have an online buddy! I’m British & moved here 7years ago with hubby & 2 kids so I don’t have my mum or aunts for support, just a few friends & work colleagues.

Hey, yes I had it done years ago. It’s seriously not a problem at all. You just feel a little sore in there for a few days, stings to pee a bit & you get that nagging period pain but that’s it. If you want me to be brutally honest it’ll feel like you’ve had a good session with your partner if you know what I mean 😜 & a period pain.
