Well to cut a long story short. Im 52 been having problems with heavy periods for a while now as you can see from previous posts. Gynae fitted a mirena coil, which has not helped at all. They did find a polyp which they removed and a cyst which was being monitored. At my last appointment this week after blood test a Ca125 with a reading of 72 (35 being range) and gynea now says I might have Endometriosis, I also after scan have a thickening down one side of my womb and says I now need a full hysterectomy. Anybody else having these sort of problems.
