My mom has had some vaginal bleeding. She is in her 50's and had menopause years ago so I insisted she make a dr appt even though she said it was stress-related. The doc said it probably is hormonal and she should be on hormone therapy meds but to get a sonogram just in case. She got her sonogram today and we won't know anything for a few days. They will call if the results are bad but if she doesn't hear by Monday she is going to call. I am so worried. Has anyone or anyone's mom or someone else you know dealt with this?
Worried about my mom
Even if the ultrasound is normal, she should have an endometrial biopsy. It's a very simple in-office procedure. Overgrowth of the uterine lining is a very common cause of post-menopausal bleeding, and it puts women at risk for endometrial cancer. Make sure they do a biopsy to rule that out.
I'm a nurse practitioner, btw.
Sending good vibes to your mom!!
