This is the first time I have posted on here, so apologies in advance if I start to ramble…!
In December 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 1a2 CC. In January 2015 I had a radical hysterectomy with lymph node removal (kept ovaries). I’m currently on 4 monthly check ups, and so far everything has been going well, albeit a bit stressful at times.
Ever since my op, I have been experiencing mild discomfort around my sides, almost like a stiffness, especially if I’ve been on my feet all day or picking up/carrying my toddler. I finally mentioned it to my GP this morning, and she is referring me for an MRI as soon as possible. She suspects it is probably just scar tissue/adhesion pains and that a scan will put my mind at rest, but I’m going out of my head with worry. All I’ve done this morning is cry. I can’t concentrate or focus on anything, all I keep thinking is that the cancer has come back. I’m so frightened.
Has anyone on here had any experience of a stage 1 recurrence? What were the options offered to you? I don’t know where to turn and I’m terrified that it’s back.
Thank you in advance for any help or advice
