Hi new member. About 12 weeks ago I woke at 2am thinking I just needed the toilet. I sat down, and blood just poured out of me. The cistern,the floor,everywhere. It was like a scene from 'Carrie'. I quietly cleaned everything up, including a quick shower as I was covered too. Clean underwear, pad, and went back to bed. This pattern repeated itself till about 3pm the following day. I was changing clothing, bath towels on the bed,feeling the blood gush out and needing to change my pad every hour.
I was also passing clots about the size of golf balls. Very new to me. By the afternoon, I was exhausted, dealing with this secretly, not involving my partner. But I have chronic illnesses and back and hip problems, I just physically could not bend down any more. This time around I was changing my pads whilst still in the bathroom, comical really, I was pulling down my underwear to change, and the blood just poured out of me like turning on a tap. My final stage ended when I actually had the urge to push, like in labour. The clot was as big as my hand, about 5". I was so ashamed, but I needed his help by this stage. I text a friend who is a doctor, and she told me A&E now!
Was admitted overnight for tests, in between doctors seeing me, I had to excuse myself, find a loo, and clean up again. I was leaving a trail of blood wherever I went. Constantly being told it was a heavy period bleed, despite me telling them my period wasn't due for another 10 days.
I had a vaginal ultrasound the next morning, and fibroids or tumours were found on my uterus wall. I was discharged, with an out patient appointment in 6 weeks time. Right on track, 11 days later, my 'normal' period came. Had the signs, which I didn't before. Quite heavy, lighter and spotting. Three days, as usual. I had an examination, scrapings of my womb and a biopsy was taken, very painful. Still awaiting the results. I have since had another excessive bleed. Changing pads every hour, this time I felt the clot just slide out of me. disgusting. I went to clean up again, and deja vu, clothes, underwear and legs drenched in blood, and the clot this time filled the whole pad. about 10"! I started to feel the sensations of shock coming on, so hubby cleaned up 'Carrie-The Return' whilst I was in the shower. It happened again, this time seen by him. Huge. I have had constant 1st day like cramps, non stop for this whole time (12 weeks).
Sorry if my post is too long,or graphic, but I have no one to talk to about it. And I can't stop feeling that I am facing cancer for the third time. First time 29 and breast. Second time 35 and thyroid.......
Thanks to anyone who reads this..
