Hi, sorry to post again but I just feel like I have no one to talk to about this as I don’t want to upset friends and family and I’m desperately going out of my mind. I have been experiencing a number of problems recently. I have had spotting inbetween periods since March this year and been in and out of the doctors about it. The last few months I have also experienced leg pain, back pain and genrally feel very lathargic and run down. In my last examination (not appointment though) the Dr said I had ectropion of the cervix which would explain the bleeding I had. It didn’t really put my mind at ease as I still felt this annoying feeling that something more was wrong, especially with the leg pain/dullness getting worse!
In the 3 appointments since, they have tested me for STDs and taken 3 lots of blood, all fine. Today, I went back in as the pain is worse and the bleeding is heavier and she has examined me again and said that the extopion wasnt symmetrical like it should be (?!) so had referred me to an urgent coloscopy within 2 weeks.
I had had a normal smear in 2016 (when I was 24) but I don’t think I was tested for HPV after asking them to review my results. The last few weeks I have continuously felt nauseus, had trouble going to the toilet and the bleeding now resembles a medium flow period, for the past 3 days (7 days before it was due) I am going out of my mind, I have a gut wrenching feeling and can’t help but think sometimes you just know?
The urgent referral wasn’t put through due to an admin error so as of yesterday, the two week wait starts again. I don’t want to leave the house, I don’t want to see people, I’m in total despair. Has anyone got any advice?
