I recently had an endometrial ablation done in April of this year to stop my excessive bleeding. To no avail it did not work. I am still bleeding excessively, not for as many days but for four days now instead of seven and am still bleeding as much as I used to. Now with the bleeding I am experiencing a lot of cramping and headaches. I just had a doctors appt. on monday. He told me that my ablation worked fine but that he could not cauterize the front part of my uterus like your supposed to because of my three previous c sections. Im only 23 years old, and he wants to do a partial hysterectomy on me taking out everything but my ovaries. I'm very scared for he will have to re cut me open on one of my section scars to do this. I have had a lot of surgery related deaths in my family within the last six months. Three to be exact. My uncle died on the operating table, and my great grandma went in for gull bladder surgery and found she had full blown body cancer and lived a month after she had been cut open. My aunt went in for a regular doctor appt. because of headaches and then the next day died from an aneurism or however you spell that. I'm so scared to go get this surgery done. So what I'm asking is should I get it done with the risks against me or live with the heavy bleeding and fainting spells caused from the loss of blood and me being anemic?? I'm really scared guys and need some much needed support and advice.
