I am currently supporting my girlfriend as her mum has been diagnosed with advanced stage cervical cancer
I have found other people's stories on this forum really helpful for keeping me positive and that in turn is keeping my girlfriend hopeful so firstly thank you for your stories and bravery.
My question is her mum has just finished her first batch of treatment which was both chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Before treatment her tumour was 6cm and we were told the tumour had begun to shrink during treatment which was amazing news however between the six weeks finishing treatment and having her next scan it has now grown to 8cm.
The more I learn from other people the easier I find it to support her I am wondering if anyone else has a similar experience... I am still extremely positive that the tumour has responded in some form during the treatment. And I am hoping they can up the strength ect and try again.
