From here one of these things will happen before I go back in 6 months:
- My mood will improve and be obviously related to the loss of the Mirena. I will have some level of moderate bleeding that is manageable.
- My mood will improve and be obviously related to the loss of the Mirena. I will resume the heavy bleeding. We will discuss either a hysterectomy or endometrial ablation, more than likely hysterectomy for a few reasons.
- My mood won't change and my bleeding won't change. We'll hope to make it through menopause.
- My mood won't change and the bleeding will increased. A new Mirena would probably be placed
She thinks there is at least hope that the bleeding will be ok because I did have the D&C last year. But I've had 6 months of funky, not typical for the Mirena periods so hard to know. In ways I kind of hope that it is the hysterectomy path. If this is early menopause I'm facing a lot longer with heavy bleeding and since menopause can be a rough time with bipolar (like as in I may be hard to stabilize until that is over) and if we can remove the bleeding factor I suspect it will be easier. On the other hand surgery is scary after the last time. I also don't know for sure but it sounds like this would be more than laparascopic. But I'm not sure. So we'll see. 6 months of who knows what? This sounds surprisingly like the last 2 years of menstrual "cycles".
