I finished chemo & radiotherapy mid October last year 2015 for recurrent cervical cancer. A ct scan in November came back clear , no more evidence of disease and back to 3 monthly check ups. My consultant has told me should this cancer return again I will be palliative , so I’m really scared.
For the past 3 weeks I’ve had a pain in my left calf , went to GP was sent to DVT clinic where a DVT was ruled out , now over the past 2 days my left ankle has stared to slightly swell up , I’m thinking the worst and the cancer is back , I have made an appointment to see my GP again on Tuesday I’m really scared and can’t help thinking the cancer is back again for the third time and I know this time there is no chance of cure as this is what the consultant has said.
I’ve told my partner and I do try to think positive but it’s so hard can’t help thinking the worst case scenario !
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated ,
