You have options: There are many treatments available for heavy periods. Novasure, hydrothermablation, cryoablation and thermachoice are all fda approved. I thinkthat the hydrothermablation (also called genysis or hta) is the safest option. Look for a doctor who has experience with this as well. ...Read more

10/min too many: Etiology of ordinary PAC's broad even if Echo normal. Even small doses of long acting B-Blocker can decr PAC's signif. Have you tried 12.5 - 25 mgs per day of Metoprolol Succinate? I have had good success with this particular med. Do not expect cure overnight, but usually this can stabilize the heart. At these doses of the long act metoprolol heart rate will slow little if at all. ...Read more

To ablate remnant tissue after complete thyroidectomy(initially had multiple noduls, 1-ca node), what maximum dose of radioactive iodine be taken?

To ablate remnant tissue after complete thyroidectomy(initially had multiple noduls, 1-ca node), what maximum dose of radioactive iodine be taken?

Depends: The dose is related to the risk of recurrent disease. The larger the primary tumor, the higher the risk. In your age group (under 45 yo) the risk is relatively low, even with having a positive lymph node. The recommended dose would be as low as 30 mci or as high as 100. ...Read more

If novasure did not fit evenly into a womb would the procedure still go ahead and if so wouldnt it be dangerous to ablate one side more than the other?

Not dangerous: Danger isnt the issue with an incomplete ablation. The issue is you may continue to have menstrual bleeding. The procedure will go ahead an ablate even if there is an uneven fit. That is ok. There are safety features in place to prevent activation if there is a hole in the uterus though. Novasure is not my favorite method for ablations but there is not a safety issue if one side was ablated better. ...Read more

May occur: Definitely speak to the physician who performed the procedure. It may take several months for monthly bleeding to stop. However, it is also important to make sure the uterine anatomy has been correctly assessed and is responding appropriately. ...Read more

I had an endometrial ablasion six years ago and my cycle stopped. I've been cramping extremely bad for a few weeks now and i don't know why?

I had an endometrial ablasion six years ago and my cycle stopped. I've been cramping extremely bad for a few weeks now and i don't know why?

Hormonal reaction: Cramping following ablation can occur. The hormone sensitive tissue in your pelvic cavity is responding to your monthly hormonal cycles. I would see your gynecologist and make sure there is no endometriosis or uterine fibroids accounting for your pain. ...Read more

What's the difference between an ablasion vs historectomy if i wanted ablasion will i still have periods i get hormonal migraines will those go away?

What's the difference between an ablasion vs historectomy if i wanted ablasion will i still have periods i get hormonal migraines will those go away?

Very different: Ablation is a hysteroscopic procedure where the lining of the uterus is burned. This shrinks the endometrium and diminishes menstrual flow. There are no scars from this procedure and recovery is very fast. Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. You will never have a period again after this surgery, but the recovery is longer. Neither procedure will affect your hormones. ...Read more
