Has anyone found a way to minimise the impact of foul smelling, watery, constant discharge?
This was the new symptom (started 8wks ago) that made me push for more urgent investigations, when my pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding was referred to the non urgent gynaecology clinic, with a three month wait for an appointment, that was cancelled THE DAY BEFORE due to coronavirus!
Anyway, its awful. Its worse than the cancer diagnosis itself. I stink. Honestly, my partner has to open a window when he walks into the room I'm in.
I wear a sanitary pad which I change every time I go to the toilet but the discharge is so watery it gushes out. If I'm sitting down, it runs down through my bum crack, soaking the seat of my underwear and through to my trousers.
I'll have a shower and will feel nice and fresh but, before I step out of the, shower, it's running down my leg and, honestly, it's the worst smell.
It's not an infection - my swabs came back clear - it's just the tumour leaking fluid and blood because it's a moron who grows rapidly (oh, well done) but can't even make proper blood vessels to sustain itself. Stupid f*kin cancer.
Anyway, any tips? I hate smelling so bad!
Thank you xxxxx
