Waiting to see if I have Womb Cancer or something else

13 Jan 2021 19:38

Hi there I posted in the forum earlier about what is going on with me at present. I am waiting on an appointment with gyno as I have thickening of the womb. I have spot bleeding every day, pain in ovaries and womb area, pain in pelvis area, not being able to eat much, losing weight etc.

I am down as an urgent appointment but still have a month or more to wait. I feel as though if anything is wrong it will get worse, I have no energy as it is just now and I dont feel like myself , it also doesnt help as I have to cope with nerve damage every day. I had a headache that was going and going, the pain was so sore I went to hospital thinking possibly connected to what is going on, they did nothing and said I just have to wait on gynacologist xxx

Hi there, me too. But I'm not having to wait too long. Saw gp on Friday, they took bloods today, I have a scan tomorrow and an appointment on Friday with gynae consultant. I'm 53 mild pelvic pain and slight brown spotting which has now stopped

I had blood test, smear and following  week had my scan, the problem is I have thickening of the womb and need to see the gynae to see what is causing it I also have pcos polycystic ovary syndrom which can possibily lead to cancer xx

They tried to do a biopsy on me today. It couldn't get in.

now have to wait a month for hysteroscopy with gen anaesthetic. No obvious tumours but lining thickened , only 8mm so not massive . I've calmed down and less worried now as if cancer it's very early stages. 
do you know what your endometrium thickness is?

They didnt tell me what the difference was just there was a thickness of the womb. I am glad you can relax a bit better now, it helps when you know what is happening xxx

Im 60, waiting for results, started bleeding 4th Dec adoc couldnt do anything cause it was weekend so saw GP on Monday 7th she sent an urgent referral to gynae and waited for appointment until Monday 11th. Got tests and consultant found something and biopsy taken from womb and I called on Wed, as couldnt sleep, to find out how long results take, in Ayrshire its 4weeks plus. Waiting everytime is the worst.  Hope you get on ok.

Hi Your right theres nothing wrong with chasing them up. My hubby,whos my carer, was at GP appointment and the doc asked how I had got on at my gynae appointment, and I hadnt got an appointment through yet so he chased them up and I got call 2 days later for an appt 3 days later.  So it could help you by asking them. Good luck Pabala
