Well I'm happy today as I went to see my GP. She's absolutely wonderful. We spoke in great detail about everything that's happened. She's referred me to a gynaecologist and we'll take it from there. She seems to think that an operation will be needed, Probably one to reduce the lining of the womb as she doesn't seem to think that a hysterectomy will be done straight off. I'm still taking the norethisterone which should help with the bleeding, but I can take a bit more to help if its still very bad. I'm just grateful that I have had so much help with this. I'd like to thank the following people who answered my question recently about Hysterectomy and gave me so much advice:








I'm ever so grateful for your help. Thank you so much.

Hi, its good to hear you have an appt on 28th June just a day before my birthday! I will be thinking of you and hope you get on well with that. Do please let me know how you get on? Love Aisha x


Hi Hun

So glad you got some help at last, you have enough to contend with without "curse" issues as well. I used to bleed quite heavily and suffered terrible cramps (all part of fibro fun) and I took mefenmaic acid and found it very helpful, could you try that at all? I hope you get sorted and remember there are lots of alternatives to hysterectomy these days. That should only be the last resort. Good luck and hope you are feeling better soon.


Hi Silverstar,

I've never heard of mefenmaic acid before, I will mention it to my doctor next time I see her. If I can avoid having a hysto then I will, but it all depends on what the gynae says. My apt is 28th June, so I will keep you updated with what happens :) xx


The other name for mefenamic acid is Ponstan, if that helps at all! Good luck with whatever you choose hun! XX
