I am not sure if I should join or be here as I have not been told I have cancer. However at the moment my doctor is rushing me through tests and I am so over whelmed and no one to talk to. My story so far... 6 weeks ago i bled heavy after 5 years of menopasue. I have a watery discharge which sometimes is odourless or I can smell, not small amounts. For the last 3 years I have been living and caring for my elderly parents, my dad is 97 and falls alot so i lift him up back into bed or his chair etc, so i have had bad back pain for 2 years, the pain has always been lower spine the right of the spine and bad thigh heavy dull pain.(which i never put towards my new systoms until the doctor asked. I feel bloated all the time for around 3 months, i now go to the bathroom often and little.
3 weeks ago i went to the doctor as i started to feel unwell. I was tired all the time even after i have 2 good night sleeps, i still work full time so i never really thought any of my symptoms were serious just because i am very run down, the pain in my back and thighs is 24/7 can be sharp pain but always a dull pain (the kind after a heavy period).
The doctor took tests for BV as i have not had sex for 4 years(due to being single and living with my parents). when the test were clear she sent me to the hospital for a scan the radiography asked when I had my last scan, i told her when I had an evac at 39 years (9 nines ago) and mentioned she cant see if it is an ovary or something else, the following day the doctor called me and said she is not happy with the results (never explain much, and to be honest i never asked) and she is booking me into the hospital again to see a gynecologist as soon as the next appointment is free (she said they may want to do extra tests), the doctor stated she wanted to check and rule out anything sinister, she asked me to come in and have blood tests CA-125 so the hospital has it ready for my first appointment.
Sorry for the above but my mind is in a whirl, and i need to think of questions to ask, yes iam concerned it may be cancer, and i understand till biospy come back no one can say anything.... any advice ?????????
The appointment is this wednesday for a hysteroscopy,
thank you for listening to me this has really helped Cathi x
