Nadia Sawalha has opened up about her recent hysteroscopy after ‘worrying herself sick’ about symptoms she had been having.
The Loose Women panellist, 57, shared photos of herself tucked up in a hospital bed with her blanket pulled up under her chin, as well as her showing off her compression socks as she revealed she had been given the ‘all clear’ after the procedure. Simplified Medical Endoscopic Camera
She told her followers: ‘The only reason I’m posting these pics is because I want to catch your eye and urge you if you have been worrying about any symptoms you’ve been experiencing to bite the bullet and get yourself seen! Delaying things will only cause more worry. ‘I’m not going to lie I’ve been worried sick myself recently but was given the all clear on Monday! I only wish I had dealt with it earlier so I didn’t get myself into such a pickle. ‘Don’t delay make the call. Get seen. You know it makes sense. Big hugs loves, Nads xxx.’
A hysteroscopy is a procedure used to examine the inside of the womb, where a narrow telescope with a light and camera on the end is passed into the womb.
The procedure is used to investigate symptoms or problems including abnormal bleeding and can diagnose and treat conditions like fibroids and polyps, which are non-cancerous growths, on the womb.
Nadia told a commenter that she had undergone the procedure and found she had a thickening of the womb and encouraged others to get checked out if they had worries of their own.
