For those of you who were waiting to hear what the OB/Gyn had to say today about my bleeding last week, I will give you the update. And for those of you who really don’t want to hear the intimate details of my cervix, please skip this post and accept my apologies for writing about such matters.
So – where do I start?
Well, apparently I have a very interesting cervix – she has never seen anything like it. (Not what you want to hear from your specialist!)
After freaking me out when she first peered in at my cervix with mumblings like, “…hmm looks like you may have two cervixes…” (Excuse me?!?! After all the doctors who have had there time looking at my cervix, you’d think somebody would have noticed that!!! – no, I didn’t say that to her.)
“I am just thinking out loud,” she apologized, “I will be quiet…hold on till I can get a better look… You have a very damaged cervix…”
At that I quickly told her about my messed up D&C and the stitches the doctor put in.
“Oh!” she was very relieved to have her explanation. “That is what it is from…”
Apparently my cervix didn’t heal properly and now I have these long tags of skin growing on my cervix. LOVELY! She doesn’t think they are dangerous or cancerous (she doesn’t want to biopsy when I am pregnant) – but they are very interesting! Good grief – that is what I want – an interesting cervix! But I am very grateful she didn’t think they were cancerous, so I will try not to complain.
She said the bleeding did not come from the cervix and that it must have come from my uterus. (“But not to worry” – like that is possible!)
So now all I know is – I have strange growths of skin on my damaged cervix. (She said they were not polyps.) She has never seen anything like it. And the bleeding must have come from my uterus. Who knows why? But I probably shouldn’t do the things like vacuuming etc that I did before the bleeding started.
Thank God the baby’s heart was still beating away in there – that was definitely a relief to hear. And so even though I have weird growths inside me, things look okay I guess…
(But once I get this baby out – I think I am going to ask for a biopsy on those crazy growths!)
