Two years ago I noticed that something is wrong with my periods. I experienced heavy menstrual flow and nausea. At the same time,It seemed to me as if I was failing to ovulate because my discharge had changed. A few months later, I started having ocassional post coitalbleeding and spotting between my periods. Later on, I went to see my gynae and she took a swab which actually came clear. I was told there is nothing to worry about as my symptoms are most probably caused by hormonal imbalance.A bit later I started suffering from extreme fatigue, lower back pain and bloating. I went to my GP again and was told it's psychological.I returned to the surgery a few days later as lymphnodes in my neck started to swell. She immediately ordered blood work which later showed that I have anaemia. Two weeks ago I had my cervical smear test done (started bleeding during the procedure) and am currently waiting for the results. I feel horrible because now I understand that the initial symptoms I initially complained about are those of cervical cancer.Since Easter things got much worse. I constantly get pain around my left kindey which comes and goes. I also get weird pelvic pressure which I mainly notice at night. In addition to this, I lost 3kg in two weeks time and my weight is only 45kg now!
Is there anything I could do before my smear results come back? I have seen my GP four times since Easter but I was only suggested to go on a pill or take ibuprofen/paracetamol.
