I have not posted in a while, but still read frequently. I was diagnosed just over two years ago with UPSC, stage 1B. I finished chemo and then radiation in August, 2011. I have been doing great until now. I use a dialator. Last night there was blood after using the dialator! I also had blood on the toilet paper and a very very small amount on a panty liner. I used a dialator to check this morning and there is blood again on the end of it. It looks like bleeding at the vaginal cuff. I am calling my doctor this morning. I am hoping that he can see me today. Is this a sign of recurrence?
I was moving and lifting a lot of things over the weekend. My husband has melanoma that metastized to his brain in January. He had surgery and radiation. We found out last Wednesday that it has again spread and is encompassing most of his brain. He was sent home on Hospice on Thursday with a short prognosis of about two weeks. It has been MORE than stressful for me. I have been moving things in my house to make room for the hospital bed and equipment. I felt a few twinges in my abdomen but thought that it was from the lifting....now not so sure.
I am scared to death. I have more than I can handle helping my husband die....how can I handle this if it is a sign of recurrence???? Not to mention that I cannot be going to a lot of appointment since I need to be home caring for him!
Did anyone else have bleeding like I am describing? What was it?
