Confirm with doctor: The surgical plan will depend on why the doctor is doing the surgery in the first place. It you have a simple polyp then a D and C is usually not done. If the doctor feels that tissue sampling is needed for whatever medical problem you have prompting the surgery then a D and C may be warranted. Each surgery must be individualized. ...Read more

Odds: The odds of having a cancerous growth within a polyp is fairly small.

Fluid overload: In order to see something inside the womb with the hysteroscope your doctor needed to extend the womb with constantly running saline solution. Some of it is retained in the body. The longer the procedure takes the more fluid can potentially be retained. There are precautions, though, to avoid a fluid overload. I congratulate you to having a doctor who is so conscientious. ...Read more
Is it safe to have sex 7 days post d&c/polypectomy/hysteroscopy if there has been NO BLEEDING? Or will the chance of infection be too high?
Probably safe, but: I usually recommend 2 weeks, but I think it's not always necessary. Most people heal faster than that, and we are just being very cautious. I like to examine my patients prior to resuming intercourse. Also, you may be a bit tender on the inside, even if you feel fine on the outside. If you can't wait, and you want to be as safe as possible, you could use a condom. ...Read more

How much bleeding is normal after a D&C and hysterscopy (polypectomy)? I have bleeding that seems comparable to a normal period 4 days after surgery.
That's normal: Bleeding comparable to a normal period is well within what is expected and is definitely safe. The only time a woman should be concerned if she has much more bleeding than a normal period, free bleeding (a steady stream of blood), prolonged bleeding for much longer than a period, or if she becomes light-headed with heavy or prolonged bleeding. It sounds like you are doing fine. ...Read more

Uterine Perforation: It can happen but rarely if appropriate measures are taken. Ie - knowing the position, size, and shape of the uterus before inserting instruments (exam +/- ultrasound). Experienced gyn surgeons rarely perf a uterus and if it does occur, they can recognize it immediately. Midline perfs usually heal well, lateral trauma can damage blood vessels & need repair. So, it's uncommon but possible. ...Read more
