Ive been visiting Dr Google and after almost having a complete breakdown, finally found this site... self diagnosis with the aid of google is not my friend!
Anyway, here is my story so far... I had a smear back in November 2013 ahich showed LSIL/mild dyskarosis in line with CIN1. I had this done privately, not realising that if i had it done with my regular gp, i would have automatically been screened for hpv as the hov triage here... anyways I was advised to return in 6 months for another smear. June 2014, i had my next smear which was all clear and was advised to repeat in 12 months in view of my history. I had my latest smear in February and got results last week showing borderline with hpv (this time i had it with my gp) and I have now been referred for a colposcopy.
Now after visiting google, i am realising my symptoms. I have had a slight lower back pain for the past few months and an intermittent pain in my groin which I really hadnt thought much of. I started taking cerazette in december last year after being off it for around a year. Shortly after starting it, i had what i believed to be thrush. I work away from home on ships and the medic there xid a urine test and said there was indication of an infection but told me to treat the thrush and be aware of any other symptoms. I got my period just after finishing my thrush treatment and it was now accompanied by a pretty horrific smell-sorry if this is too much information but it was like something had crawled inside me and died. When my period finished, the smell continued, I could literally smell it through my clothes but it was not accompanied by any discharge so I went back to the medical centre and was treated with some very strong antibiotics for a suspected STI. I returned home just after I finished my antibiotics and went to my own doctor for the smear. By this stage the smell seemed to have gone... after my smear, i got my period again and the smell returned although nowhere near as bad as before... however it is now accompanied by a clear watery discharge. By now, dr google has convinced me that I have full blown cervical cancer. Im trying to be calm but my moods are up and down like a yoyo. I was supposed to return to work this week but have had to postpone so now I have the added stress of no income on top of everything else.
Anyways, its all a waiting game now as I dont know when I will be having the colposcopy but I am going to go to the dr on monday and hopefully get some reassurance and clarification of it all.
Iguess the reason I am posting is more that I need to vent and get this all off my chest moreso than anything else. And to keep me away from google! Ahhhh!
Anyways, thanks for being here!!!!
