Hi i havent been on for a while as i feel i am struggling to get my head around this. On the 14th feb i found out i had CC but they didnt really know much untill id had an M.R.I scan which came back clear I was so happy but i went to see the main specialist on the 14th March which was the 1st meeting id had since i found out for him to tell me it is worse then they thought. The cancer iv been diagnosed with is very aggressive and very rare. I am now booked in for a radical hysterectomy on the 6th of March. When i asked him about my MRI being clear his response was it isnt a microscope therefore that has shown there isnt any tumors but it could well be in my lymph nodes and he wont know untill i have surgery!! I am absolutely going out of my mind. Sorry to rant on but I really dont know what to think!! Xx
I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma 2a2 with lymph involvement..I was not told that it was a more aggressive cancer just It was harder to pick up then other cancers because it's higher up ..also the treatment is the same as other cervical cancer..I was unable to av surgery because of the lymph involvement so I had chemo radiation and brachytherapy..mine was picked up with a mri scan tho..I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry until u know what's there xx
i was diagnosed with stage 1b1 adenocarcinoma and I had a radical hysterectomy back in October 2016. I didn't have any lymph node involvement. I had my first 3 monthly check up in Jan 2017, biopsy taken and came back clear :) I have got my second checkup on the 13th April for a vault smear. But I'm sure it will be fine :) so I know it's hard but try not to worry, they have caught the cancer early n you will be cured xx
Hi Katie :-)
Sorry you are having a scary time. I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma five years ago. Mine was so big it was clearly visible to the naked eye just looking up my foof so if yours is too wee to show up on an MRI scan I don't think you have a huge amount to worry about. My team were pretty sure it must have spread to my lymph nodes and like you, they wouldn't know that until after they had removed them during surgery and sent them off for testing. I was lucky and cancer hadn't reached my lymph nodes but I had chemo-radiation therapy and brachytherapy after the radical hysterectomy just to be extra safe. Here I am fit and well five years later. I am sure you will be just fine! :-)
Be lucky :-)
My story is I had a negative pap smear in 2015 after I had my baby boy, then had a test done two weeks ago and it came back as outright cancer on lab results. Its the sane cancer you are all talking about, I am waiting for a biopsy next week Wednesday. The gyno said the tumour she seen was small and on it'd own but won't know u til investigation. I have 5 beautiful children 17,16,8,7&2. I am so scared and really trying to be stong. I'm also very sorry to hear your stories . would appreciate any advice.
