I recently had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. My doctor wanted to do the D and C surgery to make sure everything was out of my uterus (even though my body started to miscarry naturally there still was tissue in my uterus). I just had my D and C surgery yesterday. The day of my surgery, everything went well. The next day now, I'm so sore on my left side and my back. My throat was very sore and underneath my breast is very sore. It hurts so bad when I cough. My pain level right now is definitely a 10 unfortunately.

My doctor recommended hysteroscopy and D and C after following my report of post-menstrual bleeding and ultrasound showing a thicker than normal lining. I had an in office procedure. Pain with injection to cervix was tolerable as was pain from cramping during dilation, use of hysteroscope and biopsy, however the pain during scraping was so intense I had to ask the doctor to stop and take breaks 2 or 3 times. I don't think she actually finished getting all the tissue.

I just turned 47. I have been having bleeding every 20 or so days. Light period for 3 to 4 days. I thought I might be getting close to menopause. Then I bled heavy for 1 week straight and light to spotting for additional week and a half. I was diagnosed with hyperplasia. I chose the D and C option with hysteroscopy. I am waiting on the biopsy. Other than the initial recovery pain and cramps it has been a relief. The constant pressure is gone. There was some bleeding, and now the wait for results!
