I had a total hysterectomy 8 years ago. I am 17 months free of breast cancer, which was stage 3. I had bi-lateral breast removal along with 17 cancerous lymph nodes. I am 60 years old.

For the last few months, I've had mild pelvic pain accompanied with some spotting. This morning, I discovered I had been bleeding during the night. The blood was various colors, from red to almost black. The pelvic pressure/pain has occured all day. I'm quite concerned. I'm on Femara.

I lost my health insurance and am unemployed. I will really appreciate any comments you may have.
