Some background. My family carries HNPCC (hereditary non-polyposis (sp?) colon cancer) which also carries rather large risks for uterine, ovarian, bladder, kidney and some brain cancers. Fun, yes? Long story short, multiple members of my family, not just immediate family, have or have had colon, uterine and bladder cancers. Two years ago, my mother was diagnosed with vulva cancer which turned out to be a seeding from an undetected colon cancer which ended up killing her. I am personally 3 months out from my last chemo for colon cancer.
Anyway, my FSH showed that I am in full menopause, and my oncology nurses said that one of the silver linings of the chemo was that I probably would never have another period. Wheeee!
However, on May 22 thru May 26 I had what appeared to be a normal period. Of course, as soon as I saw something I called and made an appointment with my gynocologist, but it is not until day after tomorrow-June 6. But on May 31 the bleeding started up again, rather heavy and it is still going strong.
My question - should I be worried? I would love to hear that I shouldn't be. Thanks all!
