after having complications following a routine d/c my surgeon has decided that I will not be having my hysterectomy or my bladder sling...she is going to try burning my uterus and put me on pills for my bladder...if this doesn't work.......

NO!!! If you are "happy" to have a hysterectomy,,, DEMAND IT!!!
I was given the choice to have the hysterectomy or have an endometrial ablation (burning the uterus) and for the last 5 years since the proceedure i have had nothing but problems!
I didn't get offered a bladder sling although I should have (my muscle in front of the pubic bone tore during off during my last childbirth 11 years ago) it has not repaired itself and my pelvic floor muscles work fine, but cramping from periods is ten times worse than before then... so adding insult to injury...
2 weeks ago, a result of the ablation, my uterus went into cervical shock (even though I am not pregnant) IT IS A LIFE THREATENING CONDITION and can happen every month your period is due after an ablation!!!

PS:- i am on morphine every 4hrs for the pain and i still feel it (not as bad obviously, but it gives you a gage of how painful it is)

INSIST ON THE HYSTERECTOMY! Do not let the doctors try to "convince you" otherwise (your too young, you will probably have to go on HRT, you may loose sensation, its overkill, an ablation is safe and has advanced...) LIES! If you are already suffering with pain (and being in this apps forum i am guessing you are), you do not want additional pain that can threaten your life! I may even start a Facebook awareness group...

they dont want to do the husterectomy because i havent stopped bleeding since d/c month ago...they dont want to kill me

Oct 09, 2014 6:51 PM

well, it is your body after all... but if thats the reason given "they dont want to kill..." you, then thats not logical is it?
Excessive or on-going bleeding (from any body part) is going to kill you... Having an ablation to stop the bleeding in an organ that is going to be removed doesnt make sence to me...
But, it is your body and your choice, I apologise if I came across offensive.
My experience with the endometrial ablation proceedure and the misinformation i was fed and not being told at all about everything else that will be impacted by it, makes me frustrated watching someone else "lining up" for a multitude of life threatening gynaecological problems...
Sorry, good luck on your journey

I had endometrial ablation done in 2006 and it was the best thing I ever did! I've not had one single problem with it. No cramping, no spotting, no problems, no nothing of any kind except the joy of total relief from h*ll. It stopped my pain and put an end to 3wk long periods that were ruining my life because of pain associated with them amongst other problems associated with having such long, heavy periods.

I know several other women who have had it done in the last several years and they've not experienced any problems either. Out of the women I know that have done it, I've had it done the longest, and was the youngest of us to have it done (23 and had already had as many children as I intended to have).
