Hey everyone, hope everyone is doing well? bit of background(sorry if long!).im 34, suffer health anxiety pretty bad in the past but in recovery after therapy. I have one child who I had to have Elective C section with and did not recover from that op well as my wound opened 3 days pp due to a blood clot and had to be packed for 4 months before closing (was hell)
Had a miscarriage two months ago at 7 weeks and was given misoprostol to help pass it. 1 week later massive bleeding with heavy clots and was told after scan some products still remained and sent me home. For last 2 months bleeding has not eased and occasionally soaking through trousers etc and still passing massive clots, checked by gynae consultant this week finally and advised I have no more retained products but I have AVM in uterus wall that is causing bleeding. She explained she wasn’t an expert in this and was referring for urgent scan in UK with specialist to look into treatment options and I was sent on my way with meds to help stop bleeding something acid?
I am so upset at this news but so glad I found this group at the same time… I dont know when my scan will be but what I have been reading on Dr.Google has not helped my health anxiety at all. That this condition can be serious ?!
I have questions and whilst this doc i have was good she couldnt help me!
What caused this? (quite healthy, non smoker, occasional wine drinker)
If I want to conceive again…is this possible?
whilst waiting for treatment can I still live a relatively normal life? Can I exercise, have sex, do i have to eat certain foods, can I have the odd glass of wine?
this is so new to me so im sorry its long please bare with me…
thanks for reading! xx
