I am new to this site - well, it's taken me a while to write something anyway!
I was diagnosed with CC last month from an abnormal smear, despite having a normal smear 3 years ago. At the time of diagnosis I was terrified of not knowing what stage I was at and what the future would hold - I have 2 young children and the thought of not seeing them grow up was too much to think about.
I've now had the results of the scans and been staged at 1a, so weirdly I've gone from feeling hopeless to actually feeling relieved, almost to the point of forgetting that I actually still have cancer! The rollercoaster of emotions are incredible on this journey.
So anyway I'm having a laparascopic hysterectomy on 20/08/13, and am unsure as of what to expect after - yet another stage of the journey to experience.
I've been reading through some posts and pretty much everyone goes through the same/similar emotions to me, so I don't feel alone. Thank you everyone for helping us stay positive and supported
