Bleeding after D&C. Histroy of Megace intake for cancer cells. Continue medication?

I had a D&C 3 weeks ago but before that I was taking Megace (megestrol) for some cancer cells that were around lining of uterus. After surgery, I just discontinued them and I am still bleeding ...the doctor said to go back on them....does Megace help STOP the bleeding also? After hanging up with doctor I thought this didn't make sense to continue the medication, but maybe I'm wrong...please advise ...thank you.

Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
The disease is not clear from your description. You have mentioned that you have uterine cancer. The treatment of uterine cancer is not D&C. Surgery has to be done. Surgery followed by radiation may be needed depending on the stage. Hormone can be given in some specific condition. Consult your gynaecologist for better guidance.
