i've had just been told i have CC yesterday at 5.30 pm (nice start to a weekend) and the numbness is starting to fade and the reality is setting in.
i went to a health assessment with my PMI on 25/5 and had a smear as part of this. i was then called in for a colposcopy 2 weeks later and the surgeon asked to see me. Stupidly i didn't bring anyone with me as i didn't really think anything of it so i was told my diagnosis on my own and then had about a 20 minute drive home alone.
the next steps i've been told are an MRI, its been staged at 1B - does this usually change after the MRI. and the consultant is transferring me to a specialist and i am to expect a radical hystorectomy.
i had abnormal cells on a smear test 4 years ago and was told to stay on a yearly cycle, the next smear did not pick this up and i went back to 3 yearly cycles i wonder if this smear was a false negative.
another thing i've notices since the colposcopy is the discharge which is very bloody and has had clots. the consultant said i should expect this until the surgery.
i lost my husband 4 years ago and am now extremely worried about my two children 8 & 6.
