I have a sonohysterogram scheduled for tomorrow and made the mistake of reading other people's comments on this procedure online. For every "it was a breeze" there were five "it was the most painful thing in my life." I am one inch away from canceling the whole thing.
The only reason I am having this test is because last year I felt as though I was about to get my period, complete with cramps, etc. I was 1.5 year post menopause and ran to the doctor in a panic. He was unconcerned, did a pelvic, said I was fine. I never did get my period, but the event triggered a complete preoccupation with getting uterine cancer. Over the past year (!) I have been obsessively checking for any vaginal bleeding (none). Any kind of discharge has sent me into a panic. Two weeks ago I went back to my gynecologist and told him how I was flipping out about uterine cancer and have been for a year. He suggested this test so I could put my mind at ease. He said that they would do an ultrasound, and if my uterine lining was thick, they would do this test so he could definitively see what was going on in there. He literally said to me, "you don't have uterine cancer."
Now I am worried about the test, that they will find something, that I will be in incredible pain, that they will find something not related to uterine cancer but something else, that I will get an infection from it, blah, blah, blah. The only reason that I haven't canceled the test is because if everything comes back okay, then I will finally be able to put this fear behind me, stop obsessively checking for blood, etc. I am so sick of worrying about uterine cancer that I could scream.
Any words of support would be appreciated!
