Hi Army,

I would call and email your doctor's secretary on a regular basis, like every few days , ( I did) to chase, see if there's an update , speak to the secretary and explain how it's affecting you. Email your GP to make sure they are aware of the situation, sounds like they'll not have got letters from the hospital updating , as you haven't. The GP may get involved on your behalf, mine did.

Hope you get a quick date soon x

I'm exhausted and a physical wreck. My situation now is in back to 19 weeks ago awaiting my first appointment. I can't believe they didn't get me straight back in when results were Inconclusive. I gave been on to drs at least 3 times and consultant secretary 4 times during this wait chasing my results and each time I've been told results were coming out. I'm going now PALS are on board I get a date quickly.. surely they can see anything could happen in 2 and half months if there is something there. Hopefully not. In just so gutted.

I’d be on to them every day, until they got so fed up with me.  Have you contacted your surgery’s practice manager? That’s how I got things moving eventually....if you haven’t it’s worth a try, send him/her an email listing everything in order and letting them know how frustrated you are with the whole sorry situation...

Hi Everyone

Sorry I have not posted anything lately but since having my Hysterectomy 6 weeks ago I have been back in hospital twice 

First I had a urine infection & spent 2 days in hospital as I had antibiotics by a drip when I came home I continued with the antibiotics by tablets I thought I was getting on ok but since having my procedure I had been passing blood only pinkish & very light but it then started to be more & much more reddish when 2 weeks ago I was back at the hospital only to be told they were going to keep me in again !

This time it was for a Post Operation Blood Infection by now I was bleeding very heavy with large blood clots ! My Consultant Gynaecologist decided to fit me with a catheter & then packed me out with paper to absorb the blood in the hope this would stop the bleeding I had to have this in for 48 hours & stay in bed. I felt so uncomfortable & did not feel well . I also had antibiotics & medication by drip to also help stop the bleed .

After 4 days I was able to come home again continuing with antibiotics by tablets the bleeding has stopped but I am still getting a pinkish colour after I go to the toilet when I wipe myself. This has continued for a week now .

I was wondering do u think this is normal to still be having a very slight bleed after 6 weeks . Has any one else had a similar experience.

wishing u all a nice weekend with love & hugs

Hello It sounds like you’ve had a very rough, worrying  time since your op. Gentle hugs coming your way. I didn’t have any bleeding after my op but I know some ladies do, sometimes for a few weeks after surgery. I’d suggest you phone your Clinical Nurse Specialist and have a word with her- she has access to your notes and so can answer your question in context of all that’s happened. She’ll no doubt be able to reassure you but if she thinks you need to be seen she can arrange for you to pop in to the clinic. Take care and j hope that you soon start to feel much better. Please let us know how you get on x

Oh , you really have been having a rough time and I hope your consultant can help explain the bleeding that your still having, I wonder if they think its still to do with the infection you got our bodies are funny things great when everything is OK but not so good if they break down. I hope your able to get comfort over the weekend but have you been in contact with your consultant, CNS? About this continued bleeding. I had some slight bleeding for a short time but it did stop. Hope your start to feel better very soon and sending you a gentle hug.

Hi Fairycake

i am feeling much better. Thank u for ur kind message & advice I have a Gp’s appointment on Tuesday 2nd July 

I will talk to her about what has been happening she is also trained in Gynae so I have confidence when I talk with her . I am reluctant to talk to my CNS as she always says go to the Gynae Assessment Ward at my hospital & after last time having three internal examinations by three different Doctors in a space of an hour I felt much worse than when I came round from having my Hysterectomy.

I think from being packed out to stop the bleed has made my insides feel very sore & tender especially if I stand up for too long in one place I find myself saying I need to sit down although I find walking ok 

Best Wishes & Night Night

I'm in same situation, after 8 months of nothing, I has a slight pinky bleed for three days, went to Dr who said she's sure if wasn't cancer, had pelvic exam which she said was fine, sent me fie ultrasound  3 days later plus I had tvg, radiographer said all looks fine and she didn't see anything to worry about. So there was meas happy as Larry, then, j get a letter this morning referring me to hosp for suspected endometrial cancer. I'm absolutely bricking it... Why say it's OK then send a letter like that,...

I'm so scared now, I rang a helpline and was told they probably jydt want to fully rule it out
