Choices, Choices, Choices!

I have to make a very big decision. Do I get yet another D&C, I had one in February, and let them install (?) a Mirena device, OR do I just get a hysterectomy and be done with it?

I have Endometrial Hyperplasia without Atpyia. This basically means that the lining of my uterus is too thick. Back in Feb., they found some polyps in my uterus and removed them. They also found some pre-cancerous cells. My doctor put me on Proveral for three months and when I went back for the follow-up exam, it hadn't worked.

So, do I get an IUD that slowly releases progesterone and possibly still have to have surgery later, or do I just get the surgery now and not have to worry about "female problems" anymore?

I really think I NEED to get the surgery right now. I'm afraid of IUD's, in the first place. I'm old enough to remember the old ones that cause a lot of problems for a lot of women. Even though I know these are different, I'm still wary of them.

Anyone had any experience with this problem? I'd like to hear your stories.
