Staging without MRI results

Hello all

 

I'm a bit confused, my Consultant staged my cc as 1b but didn't have the MRI results available. As far as I can see from other threads on here staging is only known once the MRI results are back so how on earth could my Consultant stage me without these. Totally baffled and hoping he hasn't got it wrong!!

Hi Wendy I was diagnosed as 1b1 before my MRI the nurse specialist said it was what they thought it was judging by what they had seen during my biopsy but the mri would give a definite staging and when the results came back I was still a 1b1, it was at last minute at the mdt meeting they changed it to 1b2! At that point I didn't even ask why! I didn't want to no! xx

Thanks Dominique x

Hi Wendy,

They have a pretty good idea of the stage from what they can see but use the MRI to confirm it. I was slightly different, diagnosed 2b, MRI diagnosed 4a and then re diagnosed at EUA as 2b.

I have been NED for almost 18 months now.

Big hugs, Mandy xxx

Hi Wendy

I was told stage 1b1 before my MRI and the MRI results confirmed this.  Mine was higher up the cervix too so they must have a good idea after they do the colposcopy and biopsy.

I'm nearly 15 months post hysterectomy and doing well.  Wishing you lots of luck with your journey.

Hi Wendy,

I think that an experienced doctor knows his cancer stages like a farmer knows his cows, they may all look the same to us but each one is an individual.

Wishing you the very best of luck on your new journey.

Same as me, they suspected 1B2 or small possibility of 2A, i believe this is just to get the ball rolling with whats next. There is a wait for surgery or treatment so they will start planning the next step now and confirm everything after your MRI. I was 1b2 and was already 1/2 way through the process of egg collecting when it was confirmed xx
