Hi I'm new to this forum, have been lurking in the background for the past couple of weeks reading the other posts which have really helped.
I'm 43 years old, had a smear in Jan 14 that came back high grade, first colcoscopy appointment in February where a punch biopsy was taken but couldn't do any further treatment due to being pregnant, this turned out to be an Ectopic in March so had an emergency operation to remove my tube and the ectopic, this then enabled me to have the Letz and cone biopsy done in April, found out just over a week ago that Im stage 1a cancer with Gin cells higher up in my cervix. On May 27th I'm going back to hospital again for a knife biopsy higher up in my cervix to hopefully get a clearer idea of what's going on. I've been told there's a very high likelihood of having a hysterectomy plus they may need to take my lymph nodes out aw well. I'm ok with this because I'm very fortunate in that I've got 2 beautiful kids and a grandson, as long as they get all of the cancer I really don't care what they have to do.
The problem I'm having is feeling so tired all the time despite getting to bed at a reasonable time and having a pretty good nights sleep, it's embarrassing because I'm always yawning which isnt good when youre a driving instructor and your pupil is sitting next to you....does anyone else have this excessive tiredness or should I get it checked out? The constant waiting for news isn't helping, especially because each time I get news it seems to be worse than the last time.
