Worrying about nothing?

Last reply: 1 year ago

I had an MRI on my lower back which shows arthritis and the GP said they also mentioned some thickening of the lining of my womb. Ultrasound last year for a cyst showed everything was fine. My GP told me that this was nothing to panic about, there’s no tumors or anything this is something that just needs follow up and I may need a D&C. I looked back at my dates and noted I was ovulating around the time of the MRI. Regardless, I am
In panic mode. Am I worrying for nothing??

Dear Tamz

We are sorry that you feel anxious however your GP has explained that your MRI showed arthritis. Thickening of the lining of the womb is a common problem for women and your GP has explained that a D&C might help with this. Your GP has said that there is no need to worry so we would advise you to take reassurance from your GP’s advice.

Kind regards
