i have a wonderful neurologist who will follow me closely. i stay home for the first two days of my period from work because they are such an issue.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 21 days ago

a uterine ablation procedure may help with decreasing bleeding without a hysterectomy

Customer reply replied 21 days ago
the ablation has been brought up i just worry it could cover up any potential issues? or is that not true? my sisters uterus was biopsied three times before it was biopsied correctly to diagnosis stage 4 cancer
OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 21 days ago

the ablation will not over up issues

chance for uterine cancer is small.

you may have to travel to larger academic medical centers to see a gyn doctor who can do a hysterectomy for you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
