I went to the groinocologist for my annual inspection and we discussed my having a endometrial ablation since as I approach the “change of life”, my system is going haywire.
“No problem”, says he while staring into my cervix. First we have to get back the pap results, then get an ultrasound to clear me of fibroids and I can have the little operation.
Pap fine, HPV fine. About that ultrasound…my uterine lining is apparently “too thick”, so now I have to have it biopsied for cancer before he can do the ablation.
Well, now really.
The chances of my having cancer are practically nil – there are many reasons why I could have a thick uterus (I am a pretty tough bitch, so it figures my organs would be thick). But just the mere thought bothers me. Half of my classmates have either had OR died from cancer. One is going through it right now.
So, I am mildly freaking out. Kaiser, of course, hasn’t called me with an appointment yet, and I have no symptoms, no reason to believe I’m a walking time bomb, but damn…let’s just get this done so I know for sure.
I swear, the universe is trying to make me crazy. Keep your fingers crossed for me, will ya?
