Hope you are all well no matter where you are on your path or treatment.
I had the letter of doom through the door a week ago asking me to come in and speak to the gyn team today with no indication of what about, but unless you are completely naieve or in denial then I think most women suss that they have found something by that point (still not happy with the letters they send out women or the time we have to wait to see someone). Went to the appointment on my own by choice and was told that it looks like a minimum of stage 1b1 but want to do an MRI on the 24th Dec, and on the 7th Jan they are doing the cystoscopy and proctoscopy as well as further biopsy and pelvic exam to stage it properly and come up with a treatment plan.
Have just had to break the 'bacon really grown on trees' version of events to my 13 year old daughter and downplayed it, which was difficult as my mum passed from cancer just over 3 years ago, but thankfully my girl is ok and will have the support from her school as have spoken to them also.
Does anyone know how long results may take from the MRI scan and how soon after I may be able to expect treatment? Will be difficult to arrange child and animal care as am single parent with limited family who do not live locally, and have commitment with cats and dog, as well as working full time too.
All happens at once doesn't it, funnily enough I am a lot calmer and less worried than I was during the week, I think it is the not knowing bit that gets to you. Hopefully staging will confirm 1b1 and not any further, and thankfully I am not worried in the slightest about treatments of any sort, just who is going to look after my girl and pets while I have what treatment I need.
Never easy is it ladies!
