I am so scared right now.
I had my daughter via C-section in Feb 20 & have suffered with pain during intercourse since. Initially I believed it was due to having a baby & recovering from the section but then I also started to bleed.
I had my smear in July which came back clear but went to see my gp last Friday. She examined me & said that my cervix looks red & inflamed & that I'd need swabs to check for infection. Today my swab results came back clear so I'm on a referral to Gynae. I'm terrified that I have CC.
My gp said it'll come out to be 1 of 3 things. An infection, the condition where the cervix comes away (begins with E but can't remember the name), or cancer. One result has come back negative so I'm now 50/50 that I have cancer.
I've been struggling with nausea for weeks but never thought anything of it. I have pains in my stomach & they've now moved to just below my ribs. I'm convinced I have cancer & it's already spread.
I lost my dad to leukemia when I was 3 & my biggest fear in life was to have children & that happen to them. Now it's all I can think about happening. I always wanted kids. My daughter is only 19 months old & I can't stop thinking that I'll never see her grow up. I can't bear this.
I'm only 31. I'm just so worried.
