I'm sorry I haven't been posting but as I said there is a reason and it's because I've been in hospital.
I have had to have a hysterectomy.
The reason for this is because I had cancer.
It started last year, when I started to bleed, not heavily but it was every day, well, as we women don't, I didn't rush to the doctor.
As you probably know that when menopausing all different things happen and it gets to the stage when you just put up with it which is exactly what I did and believe it or not I'm glad I did.
The reason is because when I eventually went to see my doctor he sent me to see a consultant, she was private actually but they take NHS patients as well.
I told her it had been going on for months but because of work and looking after geoff, he had a knee op the year before and was struggling with it, I didn't bother with it, it was more a nuisance than anything. So, she booked me in for an internal examination, just for a day, I was sedated and was treated at the private hospital, it was great, You are treated like a queen!!!
Anyway, she was happy with it and told me she took an biopsy just to make sure.
To cut a long story short, the biopsy came back and yes, I had cancer.
The doctor could not believe it, she couldn't see anything wrong and was totally surprised.
The cancer was so new!
That's why I'm glad I left it now, if I had gone when it first started it would have been missed. The biopsy would have been negative and I would have had this cancer and nobody would know.
I must say that I was in no pain at all.
I did not stay private for the operation I went to a NHS hospital for that and the male doctor I saw was lovely.
So, after a couple of weeks I went in for the hysterectomy and they removed all my bits and pieces and the cancer.They took another biopsy and that was clear.
They were brilliant!
The laugh is I hadn't got a lot left anyway, because thirty years ago I had two ectopic pregnancies and they had to operate both times. I had my right ovary and phelupium(not sure how to spell that!) removed.The second time they had to operate but nothing was removed that time.
Anyway, back at work now, and I will be seeing my doctor in august.
They will keep me under observation for 5 years now.
So, that's it, and I will now be blogging again now I am back to normal, as they say.
