Hi all so had my appointment with the consultant yesterday and here's what he's said,
- MRI was clear no sign of tumour
- cervical cancer further up cervix and are poorly differentiated cells which are aggressive.
- Also found LVSI ( Lympho vascular space invasion) cancer cells inside the lymph channel.
- decided to go for Radical hysterectomy and told that I would have to have extra treatment at the end, waiting for appt to see radiologist/chemo specialist
- cancer stage 1b1.
yesterday I absorbed everything he had to say and thought I'd took it really well however today it's hit me like a ton of bricks, also since Saturday night Ive started having panic attacks I never had them before and I feel like there coming more frequent.
just wanted to write this post to see if anyone has been in the same position as me I terms of staging and the LVSI, it is this that is concerning me as I don't really know what it means and he seemed very worried by it.
i would also like to know how long did you all wait from being staged to having the radical hysterectomy, its my best friends wedding 2 weeks Sunday and I really do not want to miss it as we are all part of the wedding page boys, flower girl bridesmaid etc however I know that my health comes first.
Can I finally ask aswell did anybody get really overwhelmed by the amount if people wanting to ask how you are and well wishing you on your journey and telling you your a strong person because at the minute everyone is being really really nice and I just want to scream and tell them to leave me alone.
Sorry for the long post !! And again thank you so much to this site and everyone that's part of it, it's like. Y little sanctuary when I'm on here reading everyone's stories and getting my thoughs and feelings down so thanks xxxx
