I started seein just a trace, teensy tiny, teeny bit of spottin. I was all like, mmmm'kaaaay...Am I havin a menstrual cycle?? Kinda thought that biz was pretty much over. Especially since Dr W's FSH test in May showed I was POST menopausal....(but then the other hormone showed ovulation)....Anyway....so I called the ob/gyn Dr D....decided to go ahead & move up the sono appointment from September to ASAP & make sure there were no Tamoxifen related issues. And also re-ran that FSH hormone test to see what's goin on here.
So I go for the sonogram. And I broke my New Year's Resolution to remain calm & not be a total weirdo freak in front of my doctors. Ugh...so embarrassing! But everything looks fine. Same ol same ol, except for the fact that it appears that I had recently ovulated. He & the tech were all like "Hey look at that, she ovulated!" 0.0... Next day I get the phone call that yes, the FSH still shows I'm POST menopausal...but the number is goin down...a tiny bit...Down is the direction toward PRE-menopause numbers....& then there's the whole issue of the ovulation. How the hell do you ovulate if you've completed menopause???
So here's what Dr D is thinkin....it appears that perhaps my ovaries are "wakin up" after havin gone through all the trauma of chemo & cancer treatment. And maybe I will expect some irregular visits from ol Auntie Flo...Hormones could be just all over the place for awhile. Which would explain a lot....Bitch is Back you say? Mmmm, yeah...just ask O who's referred to me as a "moody bitch" twice in the last month. (And he'd be SO right, too.)
Sooooooooooooo long story short....had them copy Dr W on these findings. Dr W will probably run it again next month. So still have a bit of a flurry of docs to see in September. And this "Milestone Mammo"....ugh.
