Tired of all the bleeding/spotting

Let me start by saying, I am so grateful to have found this site and for all the women that are on it. I am just about a month out from a TVH and to be honest scared to death. The longer time stretches on, the more nervous I become. After my second cold knife cone, my doctor told me that the pathology report showed cancer and we decided that a vaginal hysterectomy would be the best route to "cure" me. (After I discussed the options with my family.) Here is where I'm starting to get concerned. immediately following the cone (and DNC) I had a heavy cycle, which I was prepared for since I was told that could happen. What I wasn't prepared for is that I have been spotting or bleeding in some fashion or another since. I might get a few hours of relief, and I breath a sigh thinking "whew, finally", but then it's back. I'm so sick to death of wearing pantie liners, pads and tampons. On my post surgical check up my doc treated me with silver nitrate(sp?) saying there was some seepage. I'm fairly sure that anything surgical has long since healed (it's been over a month) but what concerns me is, they found cancer on the pathology report, I've been bleeding/spotting pretty much non-stop since the cone, yet they scheduled my TVH 3 months out? Does anyone else find this odd? I understand that cervical cancer is a slow growing cancer but to wait 3 months seems excessive (at least in my mind.) Is this just another VA "thing"? Am I being overly sensitive about the spotting/bleeding? I would, at some point, like to have a day where I wasn't worried about carrying "supplies". Half of me wants to call the women's clinic at the VA to ask about this, but the other half remembers the less than helpful manner in which they handle most inquiries. Should I just suck it up and wait for my surgery?

Re: Tired of all the bleeding/spotting

I would call and ask. These people get paid to provide you health care so they can answer your questions.

The silver nitrate seems to be used to help make an area heal so it will stop bleeding. For whatever reason you didn't heal up which is probably what is causing the spotting. I'm not sure how long ago that was applied but it may not have healed yet.

I don't know about the cancer part. I know there are many women here who have dealt with it so hopefully someone can answer your question.
