I had uterine cancer in October 2010. Full hysterectomy and no followup treatments as the cancer had not spread. Wasn't really given a "stage" but after looking on the internet I would say it was 1B and Grade 2.
In May of this year I wiped and found blood. It stopped and I dug my head in the sand and decided to tell no one. It happened again in July and I went to the Oncologist. He did a swab and it came back clear. It happened again in August - he redid the swab and again it came back clear. It happened again last week. I saw the Oncologist today and he is totally stumped. He examined me and said everything looks perfectly fine.
He finally agreed to send me for an ultrasound... but he really has no idea what is happening.
The bleeding lasts for a very short time, the blood is bright red and it goes away - and doesn't happen again for 2 or 3 months.
Has anyone had this happen?
I have noticed my urine is brown at times - and he says that would be blood. He is concerned - but stumped.
The only other thing strange is it hurts to sneeze or cough. I am quite overweight so I usually just ignore symptoms and chalk them up to being overweight - but something doesn't feel right.
I know no one is a doctor on here - but if you have any insight (good or bad) it would be great to even give him some help - seeing I had to insist on the ultrasound... he was going to "wait and see if it happens again" and I said no... we have tried that.
It's hard being a doctor AND a patient! He is supposedly one of the best here in Toronto and I think he is... but he is starting to freak me out by not knowing what to do next!
