I have been diagnosed with a large tumour on my cervix. I had started to bleed which was a surprise as I'd had an hysterectomy 11 years ago and not a spot of blood since.
My treatment 32 radio and 5 cistaplatin starts on Monday 17th June.
I had been admitted to hospital twice with heavy bleeds in the last month. They packed me full of gauze.. yards of the stuff ! So painful, it was like sitting on a rusty fence post ! I was put on a drip of transexemic acid too
Since then I have been given transexemic pills to take as and when needed.. up to 3 a day. I'd been managing very well on one every other day until this morning, when I had a huge bleed with massive clots. Tried to phone my oncology nurse but had to leave a message as she wasn't available. It seems to have slowed now though.
Any experience please ladies?
