I gave birth 12 weeks ago. A few days after giving birth I began to feel very poorly. I ignored it at the time because I put it down to my body trying to return to normal. I didn't have anything like this with my first child. After 2 weeks of suffering I eventually took myself to the hospital where I ended up being admitted. My urine dip test showed positive for several things and the Dr found an abnormal growth on my cervix whilst doing an internal examination. Swabs were done, my urine sample was sent to the lab to be tested further and I was discharged from hospital with a 3 day course of antibiotics. I finished the course and was still feeling unwell so went to see my GP who prescribed a week course of another antibiotic to treat what he thought was a UTI (this urine sample was also sent off for further testing). I then got my results which showed that there was no urinary tract infection and no water infection so I was at a loss as to what was going on. I decided to go private and was diagnosed by a gynae consultant with endometritis and suspected placenta being left behind after birth. He told me I needed a scan and referred me back to the NHS. He also prescribed yet another different antibiotic- this time a 2 week course. Once I finished this course I took another urine sample to the Doctors and surprise there were white blood cells again, yet again sent to the lab and no infection. The doctor advised me to continue dipping urine at home to see if the white blood cells went. 12 weeks on they are still present in my urine. Several other samples have been sent to the lab all with the same result. I have my pelvic and kidney scans tomorrow. I just wondered if anyone had had anything similar and could shed some light on what could be wrong? I have convinced myself that I have ovarian cancer as I also have lost 3 stone in 12 weeks (I have always struggled to lose weight), have severe pelvic pains and bloated.
