I have seen a lot if new ladies being diagnosed recently and thought I would share some of my story, hoping it will help someone in the same way reading others stories helped me.
I was diagnosed Christmas eve 2013 with stage 2b adenocarcinoma. My treatment was 28 radio, 6 cisplatin, and 3 brachy, followed by surgery and was all done by june 2014.
It has been a rocky road and I struggled with very bad bowels, fractures in my hips and pelvis, painful legs and feet, pains in my left side and kidney areas, weight gain and then the good old menopause hit with a massive force ! The drs were great and made recommendations to take pain relief when needed, regular excercise, and diet … but most important to listen to my body.
As a result of the pains I was scanned in Dec and it most of my issues are being put down to recovering from the treatments and there’s no evidence of disease,
Yesterday was check up day… I have graduated to six month reviews … yeahhhhh. I can honestly say that I feel better and fitter than I have for years, both physically and mentally. It’s been a long road, Dec 2013 seems a lifetime away.
I wish all you ladies about to start treatment or going through it all the luck and love in the world… you can do it.
Wish there was a like button for this! Great lovely lovely news! x x x
Lovely! Lovely! Lovely!
Thanks for this Tracey :-)

Thank you ladies for your good wishes.
It has been a long road, and to be honest a much longer road than I thought it would be. However, I made it !
Good luck to those starting or still on the road. At times you may think the end is never coming, but keep fighting, you will get there.
This forum has helped me more than anything, a fab group of ladies
Such an uplifting post thank you for sharing, it's hard to imagine when you are in the storm that things will get better. Blessings to you and all other lovely ladies. Xxx
