I'm sorry to bother you all but I'm feeling rather alone right now, I don't want to bring my husband and family down with my worries so I am venting them here. Hope you can help...
In October, my sister found out she had adenocarcinoma at 37 weeks pregnant. She had her baby delivered by emergency c-section (he's great thankfully) and then she had a radical hysterectomy. Thankfully all the cancer was within the parts they took, and all her lymph nodes were clear.
Obviously this was pretty traumatic for her and for us. I had been suffering vaginal bleeding after going for a number two (sorry tmi) and figured in light of what had happened to my sister, I would ask to get an early smear. It came back with severe dyskariosis (think I've spelled that right), so on November 22, I had a colposcopy and lletz treatment. It was horrendous - the anaesthetic didn't go all the way round and the doc kept hitting the part I could feel.. It took ages to stop the bleeding.
I had discharge for a week, then it seemed to stop. And then the bleeding came. It's been nine days now. After six the clots began so I went to the doc and he gave me antibiotic cream to put up there at night. It seems to be stopping some of the bleeding but it's not working completely four days into a week course.
So my worry is, should I expect this bleeding to continue? It's making me so miserable. I have all the aches and pains of a period, and I'm constantly tired and drained.
Any advice gratefully received, I need some comfort :(
