Thanks for the reply's.
First of all please do not worry.I know it's hard but most of the time doctors will do right by you and if they are even
a little bit worried they will check it out or ask for it to be checked.I am just wanting some information from anybody in the same posistion
I had full hysterectomy with clear borders no lymph node involvement.No other treatment needed.I kept my ovaries because I was only 37 years old.So I was too young to go into menapause and to be quite honest, I felt I needed to stay young,physically because after the hysterectomy I felt abit old and less womanly,I don't know why that's just how it was.I feel fine now by the wayAlso I am not good with artifical hormones.So that was my choice and I am glad I made it,because to be honest if it wants to come back it will do.You just have to listen to your body,because after all it's your body and you know when things are not right.
I find it hard to understand why the people in the know think we would want this thing!!!It's perfectly normal to want answers as to why you don't feel well and get the right treatment for it.Whether its cancer or not!
I had 3monthly check ups for a year,then 6 monthly for 2 years,then yearly this year was my 5th and final year.
All along my gyny has made me feel like the possibillity of it comming back is as likley as me flying to the moon,and any mention of problems,feelings etc was immediatly disscounted....See GP nothing to do with me!!
After the first diagnosis(Took 3years for them to find it by the way,was high up in my cervix all smears came back clear, scans clear,came up on hysteroscopy after much bullying from me to have further investigations!)I have kept myself in good health,stayed fit,eaten healthy foods don't smoke,only drink occasionally.Tried to do everything to get back to normal and was great.Until a couple of years ago.I found a swollen lymph gland,and my hip and back ache had come back.Sent me for MRI all clear.Pain increased,sent me to physio,thought to be muscular.No improvement.I have a dog and up to that point we would do at least two hours walking a day,I was finding that I just couldn't do it,maybe an hour sometimes, sometimes not even that.
Consultant thought it was endometriosis(Found it after hysterectomy,on bladder,ovary and bowel)Treated me for that with hormone injections,which made me go bonkers!!!No improvement!
Cut to end of July just gone.Went to my fantastic GP who sent me for ultra sound.....6cm tumour,swollen ovaries enlarged lymph nodes....MRI confirmed diagnosis,2 biopsy's one awful(through the hip!)one fine through the vagina.Positive for cancer.Lymph node positive for cancer.Surgery to come to remove one ovary,then all the chemoradiation...
I would like to say,I have known alot of women that have had NO PROBLEMS at all since their initial treatment,so I am not wanting to worry anybody with my story.I wish and hope that I am a rare case.It was just incase anybody else had re-currence after such along time.
Once again good luck to you all.Hope I have'nt babbled too much,Thanks for taking the time
