    Cervical Cancer Blog Eighteen aka Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2018

    I’m dashing through this blog post on account of me realising that it is February and my good intention to update this blog more regularly has already failed. No, hold on. We don’t say failed we say… I have also been channelling this guy: – No, not on account of my adorable fluffy cuteness but on the fact that I simply CANNOT be punctual. ...

    Cervical Cancer Blog Fourteen aka Remission MRI #1

    This post is going to be short and, if not sweet, then I’ll aim for mildly amusing. I may fail on both those fronts. Back in January (it’s all back in January) as part of my pre-surgery diagnostics I had a MRI and more details on what entailed can be found in my post here . I met with my consultant and he told me that my PET-CT and MRI showed lots...
