      Dear Broken Angel: I feel for you. It is terrible to be left in the dark about your own body and future. I truly believe they weren't listening to you. They didn't take the time to explain things in at all or in an understandable way. I am going to do my best to do so right now.

      1. Endometriosis can be extremely painful. I know, I've felt with it for 35 years. I think your Gynocologist Dr was talking about treating your pain/female cancer (you didn't state exactly what kind of cancer you have, but I'll bring this up further to discuss in just a minute) by using Endometriosis treatment because that standard treatment involves the use of a nasal spray, shot/injection or tablets that contain Estrogen. The purpose of the Estrogen is to shrink back the end Merriam tissue from where it doesn't belong growing. When you have endometrial tissue growing outside of your uterus, it becomes inflamed from prostaglandins. Estrogen will take all this painful cycle down. Sometimes you will hear Gynecologist Doctors prescribing "the pill" to ease cramp pain or to lessen painful periods, this is why.

      2. I think you may have been told that you have the beginning or an early stage of cervical cancer. Why? Because you said that your Girly Dr. Said "It's fine." When you have cells on the end of your uterus that are just slightly not the right shape and form, sometimes the body can clear it up on it's own. So that's probably why that Dr. Wasn't very alarmed to get a treatment plan going.
      She/he might have said the words cervical dysplasia. Look on your discharge paper and see if that was written. Sometimes cervical dysplasia can turn into cancer and depending what the cells looked like under the microscope, your body just might clear them up like we were talking about.

      I hope this made sense and eased your mind a little.
      God Bless and Aloha

      In 1. "end Mirriam" was an auto correct I didnt catch. It should say endometrial tissue.

      In 2. I meant to say "end of your cervix," not uterus.

      Sorry about the errors.

      Katiefnp, thanks for the update on endometriosis treatment. I had a bad case many years ago, but they weren't doing that then.

      Broken Angel, although endometriosis is very painful and stressful, it's not life threatening like cancer, so don't be frightened. Hopefully your doctor will be able to give you relief.

      Don't be afraid to tell the doctor your feelings and ask your questions, because that's what he's for. Take a friend to help you talk to him and take notes about what he says. If that doesn't work, you should change doctors.

      Please update us on what's going on with you. Best wishes.
