DJ:  I am sorry for your news.  As Rena has said, I hope you and your doctor can come up with something.


Well--hope from Vegas and now I am in the waiting room.  I had two doctor's appointments today.  One was a regular one and the other was for an endometrial biopsy.  Oh what a thrill that was!  Well hopefully this will shine some light on what is causing the irregular bleeding.

Tina, I hope you get good results from the biopsy. I've had an endometrial biopsy, and I know it's not fun at all. I'm glad you got it over with and will get an answer soon.  Was Vegas a trip for fun? I hope so, and I hope you had a great time! Let us know what you find out.

Tina - Hope Vegas was fun - how can it not be?  Hope the docs and tests can pinpoint the bleeding.  Keep us posted...

Vegas was fun. I was playing a machine and hit max bet in error.  Ended up winning the jackpot so that mistake ended up being a nice one.  The weather was extremely hot. Left here with the weather in the 50's got there and it was 97.

Rena:  I had the biopsy before and you're right it isn't fun.  This one didn't hurt as bad. When I talked to the doctor before it got scheduled, he was thinking the bleeding was hormonal imbalance but wanted to be sure.  I rather be safe than sorry.  As it turned out, he was stuck in delivery and rather than reschedule the nurse practioner in his office did the procedure.  I think she said I have to wait a week for results. till then, wait wait wait.

Have a nice day ladies.

Tina, Yay for your Jackpot!   Picture the nanners!!
I had a few endo biopsies prior to my hyster.  No fun, but you know we've been through worse, sister!   

Are you on tamoxifen?  That is a villain in the uterine department, and can cause the irregular bleeding.

Hope you get good news on the bx.  

We had the opposite weather pattern.  We left Philadelphia at 80 degrees and landed in Chicago  to 46 degrees.....without coats!  But a great time anyway!

Sorry I missed you in Chicago.  No I'm not on Tamoxifen or any other.  Just my body doing it's own thing.  The nurse thought it is just perimenopausal symptoms.  We'll see what the biopsy shows.  

Just as a note:  Woke up to temps in the 40's this morning.  Heat wave today, will be in the 60's.

Take care.

Tina, yeah the waiting is the worst part. It sounds as though this is probably nothing to worry about, but you're smart to find out so that you WON'T worry! 

Sharon, were you visiting Matt in Chicago? How is he doing?

Vegas sounds like fun. I've been there only once--with my sister and brother. When we got to our room, we found that the bathtub was like a hot tub in the middle of the bedroom! We stuck with showers! Maybe I'll tag along the next time David has a conference there, but I need you to teach me how to gamble, Elaine. I haven't a clue.

We had a nice visit with Karen. It was short but sweet. I can't believe that she's pushing 30. She's still my little girl. As soon as we sit down on the couch, her feet are in my lap, and I get that "Mom, will you rub my feet?" look from her. Sigh.

Since this is the waiting room, I guess I'll vent a bit about my lungs. I'm so frustrated. I've been sick for the past two weeks. This week has been worse. It's the cough that bothers me. I've never had "chesty" coughs in my life, and suddenly, every cold seems to go there. All I can do is wait to see the pulmonologist in October and find out whether the diagnosis of emphysema on my last two chest x-rays is correct and, if so, what I can do to contain it. I know there's no cure. So, my anxiety level is even higher than usual right now. Fingers crossed that it's not as bad as I'm expecting.

Have a good week, everyone.

Rena -- I'm happy to teach you to gamble any time!

Maybe you have what I had?  I coughed for almost 8 weeks.  Took antibiotics and steroid inhaler.  Chest x-ray was clear.  Went for pulmonary workup (I think I posted this, sorry for redundancy) and my lungs are perfect!  It was a bronchial inflammation, nothing more thank goodness.

You've had your share!  Enough already :)  Keep up posted
