Hi, I am hoping someone out there can help me out. Perhaps you have had a similar experience to mine. I am 55 years old and I lost my uterus & one ovary because of endometreosis, and chocolate cysts in 1982, when I was 28 years old. In 1991 when I was 32, I lost the last ovary because of a huge Fibroid tumour which was so bad, it was thought to be my gall bladder,as those were the type digestive of symptoms I had with it. Now, for the past year and a half or two, I have had a very strange discharge vaginally. Please note: my husband and I have not been having sexual intercourse for a very long time, because of my other health issues. This discharge is one of two different colours. Sometimes it is yellowish in colour; other times it is brown in colour . When it is brown, it smells bloody. I am itchy at times, also, not always, though.It is not yeast infection, as I treated myself for it, even though I didn't have the exact symptoms. When I was hospitalised for another, serious illness last year, my husband asked the doctors to check this discharge. It was really painful when they took a sample of it;they were not gentle. We waited for the results, but never heard anything. On the day I was released, we asked for the results of the tests on the sample of the discharge. They had LOST it!!! I have been too afraid to have it checked again. Can anyone help me? Does anyone know what this is?Thanks, PK55:)
