Had my consultants appt at 9am this morning to get my MRI results and treatment plan. Wasn't called in till nearly 9.20am so the nerves were really jangling by then!
The good news is that the stage was confirmed as 1b1 and appears to be contained in the cervix, though it is a bit higher up. He then told me there was a fibroid in my womb (which I didn't know about) and I also have a cyst on my left ovary (which I've only known about for a couple of months). Thankfully the lymph nodes look ok and are not swollen at the moment.
The result is that the lot is going to be taken out so it's a bit bigger op than was originally planned. Unfortunately it cannot be done by keyhole and there will be a cut across and down. Has anyone else had this done and can give me a positive spin on it?
He thinks it should all be done by surgery with no chemo needed but will need to confirm that after the op.
Haven't got the date confirmed yet but I will be called up to have my pre ops next week with the surgery most likely being done the week after. Was told 8-12 weeks recovery and advised to take 12 weeks off work.
All sounds a bit daunting at the moment.............
