Consultation tomorrow after post treatment scans!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I was last on here…
To be truthful after treatment I just needed a break from cervical cancer and to try and get some semblance of my life back.
Of course that’s easier said than done. I’m back at work on reduced hours, although they are trying to get me to increase my hours all the time. I think they think I should be “back to normal” by now :woman_facepalming:t3:

I’ve been offered counselling through occupational health which I’m going to accept.

I’ve had my post treatment scans… went on holiday to Portugal to forget about said scans and to celebrate my eldest 16th Birthday, and tomorrow I have my first consultation to discuss the scans!!
So in other words to see whether I’m cancer free or not!!
To say I’m scared is an understatement. Typically I’ve started spotting today. My GP said that the type of HRT I’m on as a result of going into menopause due to the treatment ( cancer is the gift that keeps on giving) would cause slight spotting and not to be alarmed!
It’s just sods law it’s happened now!

I’m trying to think positive. Im no longer in pain, I’m not bleeding anymore. It’s doesn’t hurt when I use the dialators so these are all good signs…

Anyway…. I will keep you posted.
Love to you all xxxx

Lovely to hear from you ForestFairy and I’m glad you enjoyed your holiday. Telling you not to worry in between your scan and appointment is a little pointless as we all do - and suffer all sorts of aches and pains - but it all sounds very positive, you’re well and no longer in pain, and we have every digit crossed with you that the result will be the top prize - NED!

I second what Kacks has said. You will worry, its perfectly normal. I too tried to prepare myself mentally. I kept saying it might not be NED. Remember if its not a full NED that many others had the same. Treatment continues to work for 6 months.
Ill be rooting for you!!

So today I’ve received the news I’ve been hoping and praying for since my diagnosis last summer. I’m NED!!! Latest scans show no evidence of cancer anywhere in my body.
Thank you to everyone who has been there for me. I hope I’ve been able to contribute to this community of friendship and support in some way. Xx
