I am 39 i have 5 lovely kids youngest is 1 and has ill health due to being 15 weeks early, i can not help but feel dread that her early arrival was due to me perhaps having cancer. I have had Cancer cells removed twice 10 years ago so not too seroius, i have had part of my breast removed 12 years ago and been in a coma with meningitis 18 years ago & through it all never felt the dread i do now.
I have have a sore throat, chest infection and loss of voice for over 4 months which after a visit to the doc & a second set of antibiotics is finally going, but around 6 weeks ago i started to feel dizzy and weak so put it down to the infection until i found a pea sized lump in the middle left side of my neck(my dad had this 2 months before he died at 52) Its grown to about an inch but does not hurt, however a second one lower down has appeard but does hurt. My doc has had me in for a xray and bloods which came back fine(so the nurse said but doc still wants to see me after the result of a camara down my throat on tues) I have had 5 funny turns this week where it feels like my head has been filled with water or cotton wool(hard to explain)and i can hear, see, and am aware but can not get my brain to respond. The abulance crew took one look at me and rushed me in to a&e but after a couple of hours i felt a lot better and asked to go home, A&E agreed that it was best to see all the results with my doctor, I have not told him about the seizure yet and am due to see him in two weeks. Anyone ever had simular. I'm hoping its a viral infection but can not help but feel its something more sinister. I have been complaining about bad pains in my womb since i had my lil girl and the smear came back fine so did swabs. Could it all be related? The stupid surgery nurse put me off going any further with the pains when she suggested my partner could have strayed since the swabs were taken and wanted me to have them again before they would take further action as its costly for a scan. How indignant did i feel. But in hindsight i should have just gone ahead. They may not even be related but my nine lifes have gone. Please anyone tell me you have has swollen lymphs and nothing has been wrong or anyone tell me possibilities so i an tell my doctor(its never a doctor when you go its some silly women with a degree in medicine thats all, who keeps reading and googleing while your there in front of her who just rushes you prescribes painkillers to get the next one in and out.
