Experience

I thought my pill was fine until I fell ill abroad on holiday October 2018. I had a sudden pain in my shoulder and started to lose consciousness. I was rushed to hospital where I was told I had a spontaneous hematoma of the liver and was internally bleeding. I had A procedure to stop the bleed. After 3 weeks in hospital I was allowed to fly back to the UK. I had multiple scans and tests to see why it happened. 2 weeks ago I found out I have a benign liver tumour which was caused by the combined pill. I am now planned to have surgery to have part of liver removed as if I left it untreated it could bleed again causing death or in future it could become cancerous.
