Hello Ladies, hoping you can give some advice please.
Later this month I will be 50. Today I have returned from a gynaecologist appointment after various investigations to get to the bottom of persistent heavy bleeding. In early September I went to see my GP who tried to carry out some internal investigations but I was bleeding too heavily for this to be completed. I was referred urgently to the local hospital where similar tests were performed. I was then booked in for a hysteroscopy which happened around 10 days later. Given the all clear and discharged. After a couple of days I started bleeding heavily and called the hospital as per the guidance I was given and prescribed antibiotics for 7 days.
A week later I was readmitted to hospital due to severe bleeding and severe abdominal pain, then had a ultrasound scan, transvaginal scan and X-Ray because there was a concern that my bowel or womb had been perforated during the hysteroscopy. This appointment found a cyst on my right ovary and a 9mm fibroid at the back of the womb.
I am still bleeding, but the hospital just wanted to put me on some sort of hormone replacement tablets in the hope this will sort it out. Alongside the bleeding I have a swollen tummy, a significant change in toilet habits and feel exhausted as soon as I wake up.
My GP has just arranged a CA125 test and suggested looking into IBS symptoms too. Can I ask if anyone else had a similar experience before diagnosis? Reading some of your posts it seems unlikely to suddenly develop IBS when I have no previous history.
