endometrial ablation and hemorrhaging - why??

rosepeters1November 1, 2011

Wondering if this happened to anyone else. I had an endometrial ablation in May because of heavy periods. I bled a little for about month after and then it started slowing down. Right after that I started hemorrhaging - i don't mean heavy bleeding - I mean hemorrhaging. Rushed to the hospital, they couldn't stop the bleeding for hours and finally needed 4 units of blood to replace what I lost. I'm ok now but don't know why this happened. My Dr. said it had nothing to do with the ablation that it would have happened anyway, but he has no explanation. I don't believe him, but can't find any answers. I've never had any problems in the past - no fibroids, nothing unusual ever. I think I need to find a new Dr. I don't really have any menopause symptoms - had some hot flashes a year ago but then they stopped (I'm 52) Has this happened to anyone else?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I haven't had a problem like that but if I am not please with the diagnose I get a second opinion from another doctor. I know of many instances of the second opinion and the new doc found the problem.
