Customer Question

I have a 6mm thickening on my uterine wall. I just turned 75. I went to see a Obgyn for consultation. She asked a whole list of questions. Then said she was going to do a pap smear and a biopsy. She tried but couldn't do it. She said my tissue was too fragile and when she touched me the tissue started bleeding. Then said she could do a DandC but she wasn't going to. Then she said she would set up another ultrasound in six months and if nothing had changed then they would be a year apart. She then said you're bleeding and there are pads in the drawer, help yourself and she left with an intern. I was still prone on the table and felt uncomfortable at this time. Two weeks later ultrasound called and I have another ultra sound set for a month after I saw her. Do you think I should get another opinion? I am pretty young for my age.

repeated ultrasounds are definitely no way to resolve your problem and I would urgently recommend a D and C in this case to get a reliable diagnosis. This is the only way for you to be on the safe side, please contact another OB/GYN as soon as possible.

Hope that everthing will turn out fine, kind regards,
