Last night I had convinced myself I had pain coming from all parts of my abdomen and that the cancer had spread everywhere so I needed to prepare for the worse when met with consultant this afternoon. He quickly told (as nurse from own hospital had told him how anxious I was) that it was early stage and I was 1b1!!!!!! Well, I cried! He was so good about it all, so supportive, approachable and easy to talk to as well as very intelligent!!
I had my MRI at own hospital at 9.45 this morning and he was able to tell me at Nottingham at 2pm that the MRI was all fine and that I was all ready for hysterectomy!! He went through all the treatment possibilities, explaining the ifs, buts, and whys of all choices and came to conclusion radical hysterectomy on 24th September (same day as you, Cheryl D, I note, if you are reading).
The relief is incredible. I had all my pre ops today so don't need to travel back next week and the nurses were lovely. Such great care. Can't wait for 24th to get here!! My hubbie and I went for a walk in the rain and bite to eat to clear heads before coming home.
I'm still aware this may not be the end. I note your story Emma (r4lph) and it does bring me back down to earth. I hope you are feeling a bit better today x
Anyway, that's where I am. I will still be on here each day and comment where think may be helpful then will post again post op (maybe pre op, if nervous...) thank you to everyone on here the past week. Think I would have had a break down without this website every night xxxx Love to all just starting their journey and those well on there way. Keep posting xxx
