Im just intrested to know what all your symptoms were and what you were diagnosed with? I have my first smear test on monday (tomorrow) and am worried. I have period type pains and lower back pain .
There was another thread around about a month ago asking us what our symptoms were, if you can find that you may find it very helpful, but in a nutshell, most of us who have had an actual cancer diagnosis have had spurious bleeding episodes. Try not to worry yourself until your smear results come through, eaasier said than done I know but you don't sound very cancerous to me ;-)
Be lucky ;-)
Hi tivoli :-) . Ive had a look through the posts but cant find it :-( . Im 27 with 4 children last child born 9 months ago. 2 months after birth i had the depo jab and bled constantly for the 12 weeks not heavy . Then bled on and off till jan/feb and then went on the combined pill micronon it stopped the bleeding but i stupidly forgot a pill 1 day and the day after i was bleeding again. So i carried on the pill but it didnt stop so i then stopped taking it and within a few days the bleeding had stopped totally. Ive now not bled for nearly a month which has been great after months of bleeding on and off . Im just very concerned of the tummyaches and lower back pain ive been having and the groin and leg pain as i stupidly googled and it came up with advanced cervical cancer!!! Your message did reassure me though so thank you xx
Hi and welcome, I would definitely recommend not Googling there should be a ban on it lol in these types of situations. My symptoms were bleeding, periods changed, leg pain and back pain. Now looking back it wasn't an ache in my legs I had episodes of being in agony with it especially at night, I also had night sweats. Anyway your best not to read into these things as not all the symptoms mean cancer and some women have no symptoms.
Hi charlene google is terrible and i hate googling!! But its one of those things that are very hard to stop especially when you suffer health anxiety i have diagnoased my self with a DVT , a brain tumour , an impending stroke , a heart failure , mouth and lung cancer! But this time feels different and i dont know why. Its as if my body is telling me something. Im petrified for the smear test tomorrow im an absloute wreck!!! I just have this feeling that its going to be terminal cancer . I just cant relax or sit still , havent slept properly in 2 days. I feel like a terrible mother as im very snappy and keep bursring into tears infront of my children. If u dont mind me asking did u have pre cancerous cells or was it actually cervical cancer? xx
I just came across this sight and wanted to ask something. Since november last year i have had painful periods with very heavy bleeding inbetween my cycles. Basically i would bleed all my cycle, be off for a week or 2 then start bleeding heavily again. Plus i was having pain during sex and have lost weight. I have just had a smear test, and my fbc is back in less than 24hours. I am so worried, please can someone advise me
