Hi everyone. I'm so glad this post was made for those with nueroendocrine. I was worried I was going to be the only one because of how rare it is.
Well last week I wouldn't have been expecting to write this... In June It was confirmed that I had stage 1b1 adenocarcinoma cervical cancer. I underwent a radical in July leaving ovaries intact. I went to my consultants last week expecting everything to be fine and dandy. I was genuinely feeling positive and thought I'd just be told to come back in a few months for a check up...
I was told that when they examined the tumour they found another cancer - nueroendocrine. (I think it's small cell) My consultant advised that I will need chemo because they can't guarantee that little parts from the tumour hadn't broken off and went elsewhere in the body. Apparently the cells would be far too small to detect at the moment so they want me to do chemo as a precaution.
I am absolutely devastated. I just don't think I'm going to cope with chemotherapy. Has anyone any idea what type of drug they use in the chemo for this as I want to look into it before agreeing.
Again, thank you for making this little corner :) xxx
