So I got the bad news this morning, I do have cervical cancer. Typing it seems odd, saying it is odd.
I'm slowly telling my family and support group of friends and everyone is shocked. Not sure what the next day(s) will bring in terms of emotion but I'm shaky, teary, fine , all sorts.
I've no idea whether distracting myself and going to work tomorrow will help!? Seeing people's faces to tell them is going to be hard.
I have my MRI on 11 Feb and MDT meeting/clinic on 18 Feb so will get my staging then, they were hopeful it hasn't spread upwards as I had a transvaginal ultrasound recently which was clear....so fingers crossed it is contained.
I'm in Sheffield so in a very good place wih excellent hospitals for this type of cancer.
Thought going out to all of you facing this, I will need to lend some strength over the next weeks.
