Hello All, so I'm new today......Went to GP for something else, vaguely mentioned breakthrough bleeding, next thing I’m naked from waist down, samples taken and pushed out the door. Wait she said, if you don’t hear in 48 hrs all is fine. A week later, no news so I chilled out. Then came home to a hospital letter, urgent 2 week referral on special “early diagnosis pathway”, letter says I have symptoms of cancer and its even signed by the cancer support team. What a great way to find out that perhaps all is NOT ok! And guess what I did???!! Even tho I’m a health professional!!!! I googled! Never a good plan- as now I know I have other symptoms too. Hubby having a MELTDOWN so trying hard keeping him calm.
my appt is on a 2 week urgent referral pathway and it says I will have various investigations on the day so expect to be in clinic for the afternoon. Am wondering if anyone can tell me a bit more? appt is next Monday
