This is my first post so please bear with me.
I think it’s important to start by saying that I have severe anxiety disorder and anything health related causes me to be in a constant state of panic.
In March this year I attended my local ED for heavy bleeding and clotting on the second day of my period. I was put on medication to stop the bleeding and told to have a Pap Smear, as I was 6 years overdue (no hate please, I already give it to myself enough). One week after Pap Smear, GP calls to tell me they detected cancer. He did not tell me anything else, he was vague and rude when I became upset (kicked him to the curb now). That afternoon I met with a gynaecologist who did a colposcopy and booked me in for a cone biopsy the following week.
I received the results of cone biopsy in mid April and it was confirmed that I had squamous cell carcinoma but that there was clear margins and the cancer they had found was microscopic. I was referred to a Gynaecological Oncologist where my appointment was 5 weeks later. When I attended that appointment he confirmed that the cancerous cells they found were 0.3mm deep, and with the clear margins 0.2mm he was confident that I was cancer free. He requested a follow up appointment in 6 weeks time to discuss a hysterectomy as there is still pre-cancerous cells within my cervix and I have finished having children. That appointment is due to happen next Friday.
Where I am at today, is that I am currently ovulating. I have never experienced any ovulation pain, spotting or bleeding in the past. Yesterday and today, I have noticed watery/brown and watery/pink/red discharge when I wipe after going to the toilet. My hubby is telling me this is very normal, but my anxious brain is sure it means the cancer has spread.
My brain is in overdrive wondering how he could have been so sure that I was cancer free without doing any further testing other than a cone biopsy.
Has anyone experienced this type of discharge during ovulation after having been diagnosed, without having had it before?
My apologies for the rambling, I’m just so worried and upset and can’t seem to think properly
