Hello I am new to your forum following calling the helpline today,
i have a new cervical cancer diagnosis that is at best locally advanced, with anaemia, long term heavy bleeding and clotting and sadly an initial missed diagnosis (but time to move on from that),
my tumour is visible and staging tbc with potential vagina spread, deemed too large for surgical intervention so if remaining results do not show anything more will receive chemo and radiation combined.
All very new and all very numb but am determined to gain informative information and do my very best with this despite several melt downs!
The hospital team so far are arranging everything very quickly and my nearest hospital (quiet a distance but don't care about that) is very well respected.
The lovely helpline lady has scheduled me call backs In line with my appointments and I'm looking for any experiences please to help me, especially during the waiting game of symptoms similar to mine
i had quiet a difficult internal exam that has left me very sore and bleeding and with joint stiffness and had to take a couple of days off work ... anyone else had a severe bleed following this And pain?
so any experience please of non surgical treatment for visible tumor, excessive bleeding long term, need to wee very often but no pain, needing to nap early evening and feeling generally tired? Clicking but not aching joint?
i have a specialist nurse already who is nice, a very small but supportive family, partner and adult child who have supported me amazingly.
would love to hear positive stories, struggling with rrelaxing so trying to get gentle exercise where bleeding permits, have good GP support, just need to focus and get through this, im also interested in any herbal recommendations to support my treatment.
i am very scared, have scheduled something every day to "kill" time I suppose until the next appointment but it's enjoying time I want to do,
Thank you for reading I am rather internet shy!
i am middle aged, so I thought healthy with no non relaated health problems, enjoy walking, rather confused as have a long term partner (from late teens)with no intercourse for several years due to a health condition and no previous unprotected sex from either of us,
long term use of oral contraceptives and one very distressing life tramua, zero family history of cancer (am very much wondering why me)
again thank ypu and thank you to Helpline lady Today.
