The more I learn about this, the more I am falling apart at how such a
well-regarded doctor could have given me Premarin with my history. He told
me my endo was gone with the menopause and there was no way there was any
endo left that could be cancerous.
Thanks everyone for helping me figure this out, but I have decided to see
another gynecological oncologist to better understand what might be/have
happened. I did have surgery for endo in 1985, and no apparent sign of
recurrence in 1988 with the lap. I now know my adhesions WERE endo, at
least where my uterus was adhered to my colon, but it's not clear whether
that tissue can also turn cancerous from the Premarin.
For heaven's sakes, Dr. Weiss is chairman of the ob/gyn dept at New
Jeresey's medical school - how could he NOT know any of this?
You can look him up at http://www.umdnj.edu and see how they advertise how good he
