im a 2a lady starting treatment next week
i posted a few days ago about bleeding a lot and today was quite bad with little clots etc. I called my consultant and cns both of whom are on hol and on advice of McMillan helpline went to GP
just back from the most horrendous GP appointment where she tried three times to put speculum in and failed. She asked if i always smelled which made me feel great and eventually suggested I may have an infection. I'm now in bits as I had assumed a bit of bleeding and smelly discharge was normal for cc now I'm worried it's not and something else is wrong.
I obviously got upset at the smelly blood bath and unsympathetic gp and started crying she then told me I need to calm down and offering me tablets. She didn't seem to realise her lack of compassion and making me worry had got me upset.
I was then asked to swab myself and given antibiotics, however I've asked her to contact my consultant to see if taking them will help and is ok.
can anyone reassure me about symptoms and about what is going on as I'm pretty upset.
plus my faith in doctors is slowly crumbling
