Hi. I’m new here and feeling really worried so just wondering if anyone else has had this happen.
I had treatment (chemoradiation and brachytherapy) for Stage 3 Cervical Cancer last summer/early autumn. When I had my 3 month check-up in January, the consultant said the tumour had responded really well, there were 2 nodules which were however inactive but that a lymph node higher up had lit up. She said where it was made it very difficult to perform a biopsy and that it was very small so couldn’t be targeted for treatment anyway. She said they would wait 3 months and see what happened as it could just be an infection which would resolve itself. This is what I’ve been counting on as before I started treatment I had an area of my bowel light up and it turned out to be nothing to worry about.
I had a PET scan a few days ago and rang up to arrange an appointment to get the results. The consultant’s secretary said they were going to discuss the results at the MDT meeting and she would ring with an appointment after that. I’m really worried now as if it was all ok wouldn’t they just arrange an appointment and tell me? I’ve tried so hard to keep positive and for the first time since my treatment I have been starting to feel well and more like my old self, but I’m feeling really frightened and upset now.
