My name is Hannah and I am a 23 year old mum
to a beautiful little one year old boy.
I am new to this site and forum. And basically just
wanted to see if there are others out there who share
the same similar experience I have.
the story goes like this...
i had my little boy back in August 2014.
he was my first baby and he didn't have the best start.
he was born not breathing and had a bleed on his brain.
he was in hospital for 6 weeks and when he was 4 weeks
old, his dad walked out on us both and the story goes on....
Since the birth, I was experiencing bleeding every time I had intercourse
(I went back to his dad for this as I believed he still loved me)
but anyway, I kept putting off going to the doctors as I believed
it was because id had a baby and also there was no other symptoms.
After 8 months, I finally went to the doctors. And they said I couldn't have a smear test
as I was too young. But referred me to a specialist at my hospital.
I went for tests Each week. And I was diagnosed with srage 2B2 adenocarcinoMa cancer of the cervix.
In May, I had a full hysterectomY. And was in hospital for five days.
In July, I started 5 days a week for five weeks on external radiotherapy.
And towards End of August. I had two internal sessions of radiotherapy.
I dont know how I'm supposed to feel.
or what happens next.
I haven't cried once over finding out I have cancer.
Because it still doesn't feel real.
I have had the worst year ever.
Yet I feel I have no one to talk too.
as I don't want anyone to see that I am affected by this.
Thanks for reading.
