Howdy all,

I had the results from my ultra sound and she said they were normal, so she sent me for blood work, and that was just two days ago. Well they called me yesterday already with the results to that. She was checking to see if I was still procucing any of my own estrogen, but I am not. So I'm in line for a D&C on Jan. 14th, to check for cancerous cells. Fingers and toes crossed for me again, please!

Anyone have one of these fun procedures? They said they would put me totally out for it. Yea............I've heard enough horror stories, it's best if I don't remember it!

Thanks again for all your support, I don't know what I'd do without you guys!
Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Yes, I had this procedure done. It wasn't that bad, all factors considered. If you want to hear more, drop me a line.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

Hi Vee,

I've had several D&C's. I was knocked out completly, don't remember a thing and so pain at all afterwards. Please keep us posted, I'm sure this is a bit scary for you.

Much love
Warm and gentle hugs,

Vee, will do... I had one done many years ago , after I had lost a baby. Then later on I had to have a hysterectomy, I had cervical cancer.

Just relax after you have it done. Keep us informed... Sam

Hi Vee,
Everything crossed here for you! I don't have any personal experience with this so I can't help you there. Positive thoughts your way...

Hi Vee, I've not had a D & C but I'm sending gentle hugs your way hon. I have had a LEEP for carcinoma-in-situ of the cervix and I was knocked out for that and just had some minor cramping when I woke up. If they tell you that you will be out then you will be. I had this almost 10 years ago and I've had no reoccurances.
Take care,
Hugs, Piper

Vee,
Never had a D&C so I can't help you there, but I will keep you in my thoughts with all fingers and toes crossed.

Big Hugs,
Janey
