Hello - I'm trying to keep my wits about me and not jump to conclusions until I get a call from my Drs Ofc tomorrow. My changes started 3 months ago. I'm 51 so thought the changes to my period were signs of Menopause. My period has always been as regular as clockwork. Starting 3 months ago I started having some spotting between my periods. And my period start/stop points were blurred. Also about 2 months ago started having a watery discharge. At first I thought it was urine, but there was no odor. And wanting to find out exactly where this was coming from, purposefully used a couple of tampons when not on my period and found that they captured all of the wetness so knew it wasn't from my bladder.
I went in for my annual last Friday and the Doctor seemed really concerned. At first she wanted me to come back after my period which was due in 2-3 days for a sonagram and then she said she might due a uterine biopsy depending on the sonagram. But I could tell she was uneasy which started to worry me. She announced she wasn't going to wait and was going to do the uterine biopsy then. I was nervous, concerned about the pain, but it wasn't anything I couldn't handle. Actually I had some really strong cramps for 48 hours afterwards. Anyway, I'll get the results tomorrow as to if I have cancer or not. The doctor did comment when she finished the biopsy that it "didn't look good"...she said "I got a lot of stuff out of you".
So...here I am, trying not to jump to conclusions, but my mind is racing. My one concern is that in all the internet searches the watery discharge seems to be associated with the "Bad" type of Uterine Cancer. Ironically, I just lost a high school friend last Thursday (day before I went to the doctor) she had lung cancer (never smoked a day in her life). Anyway I don't want to ramble but would appreciate any feedback on the "watery discharge"...did any of you have it and if you did what type of cancer did they diagnose you with.
