Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and just wondered whether anyone had similar symptoms to me and what the outcome was?
I am 51 years old and had my last period 18 months ago. Prior to this I'd had irregular and heavy bleeding for 4 months. I was diagnosed with fibroids and the consultant found that the fibroids were pushing on my coil. My coil was removed and the bleeding stopped, at my follow up appointment the consultant decided to leave my fibroids as they were not very big and the bleeding had stopped. This all happened in May 2018.
9 days ago, I woke up to find my PJ's soaked in blood. I was able to get an appointment with the GP that day and he referred me to the hospital on the two week fast track route. I continued to bleed for 8 days, heavy on and off with a some small clots. I've been experiencing extreme tiredness for some time now and during the bleeding I had pelvic pain which felt like period pain.
I have an appointment at the hospital for a scan and a hysteroscopy on Tuesday. Today is my first day without bleeding and I am feeling quite good, but now the hospital have called with the appointment, I am really anxious.
I would be really interested to hear from others who have experienced similar symptoms
Thanks for reading this
