  • Uterine polypectomy under regional anesthesia?

    For years i had spotting between periods before i had my kids. Every period around my fertile week i would lightly bleed for a day or two between periods. 2017 i found out i had a small uterine polyp. I didn't want to go under to remove it plus the doctors didn't seem concerned. we left it. i got pregnant with my daughter in 2018 everything went great. 9 months after given birth i spotted after my first period. got checked out. uterine polyp was still there, but again i left it. i had no spotting what so ever for the longest time. August 2020 got pregnant again with my son. A few months after having my first period i spotted again. i got checked out with ultrasound again and it seemed like the polyp went away last year. they couldn't find any polyp in my uterus. I was so extremely happy.
    now almost a year later from that(my son is 19 months). I had two episodes of pink/red discharge after my period during my fertile week. I got an ultrasound and its back or maybe it was always there just the ultrasound last year didn't pick it up. I am not sure.

    no one seems concerned once again but it's bugging me. I have health anxiety and always think what if. it doesn't help now my mom has had precancer removed from her uterus and cervix. it makes me think should I have it removed even though it can come back. just to be sure at least once it isn't precancer or cancerous. I just don't want general anesthesia and have heard of getting epidural or spinal. I know that there are risks but I handled epidural pretty well during both births..I'm wondering if it would be the same if I got a spinal for the hysteroscopy to remove the tiny polyp.

    did anyone have both a epidural and a spinal?(I only had an epidural twice)is one more painful?
    did anyone have a epidural or spinal for hysteroscopy?...were you completely numb for the biopsy or did you feel that? i don't want to go to sleep or feel loopy but i definitely don't want to feel a thing.?
    with epidural you can move your legs but spinal I know you can't..that kind of freaks me out a bit. but I could get past that if I'm alert and not high or drowsy.

    just trying to get idea of what the experience might be like If I chose a spinal over GA..my mom says I definitely don't want nothing because she has a biopsy awake and almost jumped off the table.

    Anyone do a hysteroscopy with uterine polypectomy with an epidural they use during labor ?
