I’m sure there are many others in my situations - but I am currently driving myself mad with worry
I had my smear test a few weeks ago and had the results through last week. They state that there were severe abnormalities found and a chlopscopy and LLETZ has been booked for 3 weeks time.
I realise that smear tests are there to detect abnormalities before they become cancerous BUT - I’m now worried about a few niggles that I had over the last year or so. My daughter was born nearly 4 years ago and, when my period returned 3 years ago - they were heavier and I kept having a mid cycle bleed. This was nearly always 2 weeks into my cycle and was relatively mild blededing for a few days - I wrote this off as ‘just hormonal’ and thought nothing of it! I’ve also been experience a very specific point of lower back pain - but thought it probably came from always carrying my daughter around on my hip. Now though - all I keep reading (and, yes - I know playing Dr Google is such a bad idea!!) - but these both seem to be cancer symptoms - so I’m now terrified. I’ve been laying awake most nights worrying about a cancer diagnosis
I’m so scared and also so angry that I never thought to have either of these symptoms looked at!
Just looking to share and see if anyone else has ever had these same symtoms and a positive outcome
