I posted a few weeks back re my smear test coming back as Andeocarinoma cancer ( I freak out) and so the tests began.
I had a MRI and CT scans, which came back all clear, however they did not give me the official word on that, just that they were waiting on the final report but my Dr did say that she took a look at them and it looked good to her.
I then had 4 small punch biopsies which came back all clear but a second swab taken at the time, again came back as Andeocarinoma cancer.
So then I had a Cone biopsy done under GA.
Then 2 weeks later my Doctor told me the following over the phone:
The cone biopsy was too hard to interrupt (?!).
However it looks to be severe pre cancer cells- well that was a big Yay for me!!!- as I had thought the very WORST and worried myself so very silly.
The Dr then stated they are getting a second opinion on the cone biopsy tissue and further consulting will be done and I will hear from her in a week or so. She did add that she will be wanting to do a vaginal hysterectomy on me and wanted me to think about this before I met with her again. And that is all that I had been told.
Anyway I have heard nothing for 3 weeks and a half, I had pushed all my fears and worries aside as she had told me the words: pre-cancer and I guess friends and family have also said to me that a hysterectomy would be just a precaution measure and then I would not have to worry that it will grow or come back.
Until today- when i finally get a call from my Doctors Assistant saying I need to go for bloods for tumor markers?!? and then to see my Doctor at the hospital next Tuesday to discuss the treatment.
Question, shouldn’t they have already done Tumor markers before hand when they sent me for bloods etc earlier, on 2 occasions ?
( I live in N.Z ) the Assistant then tells me I might have to have the hysterectomy in my town but only if I am a low risk or low grade- but if I’m high risk/grade then I will need to go to Auckland for treatment by the oncologist.
I guess I just needed to rant to someone- this site has been a big help so I came here to rant ( SORRY ) The words Tumor markers has FREAKED me out as no one has said anything to me about tumors until now- it makes me think have they kept things from me?
And I’m feeling really confused and those fears are washing over me again along with the tears. I guess I will find out the full picture on Tuesday
Thanks for your time and I’m wishing all of us the best of luck out there x
