Hi just a post as I'm absolutely terrified. Im 23 years old, started out with symptoms of migraines 3 weeks ago that are now likely due to kidney disease / failure caused by end stage cervical cancer.
I haven't been diagnosed yet but I'm absolutely expecting the worst so would like to have some advice please. Was feeling around inside my vagina in the shower on Friday as it felt achy and really lumpy/grainy. Took a photo in there and it looked pretty bad / red but didn't know what I was looking at really. I've never had bleeding or weird discharge so I got scared. I went to emergency Gynecology room today to see a doctor who said she definitely saw something on my cervix and it bled when she touched it. From the way she was acting it's definitely bad. I think it was very big and spread throughout the vagina and into the kidneys/other organs from the way she looked at the nurse helping. She did a urine sample that showed infection and blood and took a swab both of which she said would be sent away. She gave me thrush medication (even though I think she's very sure it's not thrush) and told me to go to my GP for a smear.
I feel really abandoned now and like I've just been left to die because it's so bad. Why have I just been told to go to my GP? Surely I should be in there now getting scans and sorting my kidneys out since they are obviously failing? I have had all the symptoms of kidney disease for a while and yet my doctors just assumed it was headaches. We really had no clue. I'm also feeling achy and sore, lost appetite etc (which I just put down to stress) so I'm convinced it's spread and is 4b. Obviously it has to be staged via scans but now I'm having to wait all weekend to go to a GP to be referred- why is this process so slow? It could be days or weeks before I'm seen. I just want to know so I can get on with treatment even if that is going to be purely palliative.
thanks in advance
