I wasn't to my GP after a very big bleeding, I was 70, he referred me to hospital immediately.
They left me bleeding for a year before giving a hysterectomy, bringing me back every three months, the gyane Dr advising me to DO NOTHING, it's only a fibroid.
Eventually he did the hysterectomy and yes, it was cancer, I knew it from the start and asked for the hysterectomy but was put off and delayed. I'm sure if they'd listened to me it would have been caught before it got bad, it had a whole year to develop after I had the bleeding, and the bleeding never stopped.
I eve had radiotherapy brachytherapy and chemotherapy, andif only they'd done the operation even six months earlier the cancer would have been caught really early or may not have turned to,cancer yet.
I'm so unhappy at being told to do nothing and sent away to wait for another six months. So we can only go to our GP who will send us to hospital then we are at the mercy of doctors who often do nothing until it's too late. Yet we are told constantly to go to the doctor if we get abnormal bleeding.
