So yesterday late evening I received a phone call from my GP confirming that my MRI scan showed I have cervical cancer which has spread up my left side. I have been poorly with symptoms for the past 18 months but cervical cancer never crossed my mind or my GPs as my recent smear was clear!
I’m feeling numb and in limbo, I have an appointment on Friday (24th march) where they will be taking the biopsy and I am assuming that from there I will find out how advanced the cancer is and hopefully the course of treatment.
The feeling I got from my GP felt like they weren’t optimistic due to the growth they saw on the scan.
I have a 22 month old and a 5 year old and all I can think about is fighting this to be here for them, my family are in pieces, especially my husband and parents.
I just wanted to reach out to people who have or are in a similar position.
Thank you for reading
