I have recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer.
I have been having bleeding after sex for a number of years and the doctors have been telling me it is normal. The start of this year I pushed for more tests for this.
Over the course of this year I have been examined a number of times including a internal scan, nothing abnormal was shown. I went in 2 weeks ago for a coloscopy and they took a biopsy as standard due to me having treatment on my cervix. It was this that picked up the cancer cells. Fast forward a week and they removed the cells with laser treatment, it was at this point they discovered a tumour with they are sure is cancer.
The cells around the tumor look healthy and the doctors don’t feel like it has spread. I am awaiting biopsy results for the tumor and PET scans followed by MRI. I am 35 with 2 young children and I am so scared the cancer has spread and they aren’t going to be able to do anything.
I am due to have a PET scan, followed by and MRI scan, then ore op before a hysterectomy, they are very confident this can happen by the start of August. The doctors are so positive it’s just in this one place but I can’t help but over think. My mind is thike a whirlpool with so many different scenarios going though it and I can’t seem to focus on positive.
I am due to get a call on Monday with my recent biopsy results and it feels like I lifetime away.
I don’t really know what is is I’m after to be honest. Feel like I needed to talk to people who have been through this or are going through this.
Been so strong up until today and can’t seem to keep it together
