I'm new on this forum. My name is Mary. I was diagnosed with triple negative BC on May 2007 and went through a very painful chemo for 7 month (EC, Taxotere and weekly Taxol) and radiotherapy for three weeks. My period stopped right after the first Taxotere, Sept 2007, and came back almost one year later in August 2008. Since then I had other periods, not really painful, more or less regular (I skipped one last month). I had a blood test taken in Sept that showed a postmenopausal hormones, but after that I had other periods. When I met the gynaecologist in October, he wanted to do an hysteroscopy, because in his opinion these periods can be pathological bleedings given my postmenopausal status. I was reluctant to have an hysteroscopy. I know it is quite an invasive test. After that visit I had other periods (well, for me these are periods...) and last week I had another blood test saying that I am almost in a premenopausal status. I met the gynaecologist again and despite the last blood test result and a pelvis ultrasound showing a thin clean uterus, he still wants to do an hysteroscopy.
I'm both confused and upset with this gynaecologist because he seems to ignore what I've been through with chemo and radio.
Did anyone have blood test results when the period came back even if irregularly?
Thanks a lot for reading my post.
Have you all a nice day
