Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
I am 75 years old & have had a mustard colored discharge for about 1 1/2 years. Have been to two urologists & three gyn. Last one did a test showing "thickening of uterine wall to 7 to 8 mm in thickness, abnormal for postmenopausal patient." Multiple Nabothian cysts are present within the cervix. Uterus measures normal size. Other tests did not show any irregularities. Multiple calcified fibroid, largest measuring up to 3 cm within right lower uterine segment, area of pain. Is there any other option of treatment other than hysterectomy? Internist thought I had an infected right kidney. Multiple stones embedded. Presently on Microbid for infection. Your thoughts, please.
You ask about a hysterectomy and with fibroids, thickened endometrial stripe and kidney stones that will eventually affect kidney function. A hysterectomy would make your life more predictable and allow keeping an eye on your kidney function. Nabothian cysts are routinely seen on ultrasound and pose no problem. You might need a d&c or endometrial biopsy to rule out any cancerous changes to the uterine lining. I hope this helps your considerations and in the "golden years" if it isn't one thing it's another.
