Grading

Hi

Tomorrow I receive my results from my CT scan. I also had a biopsy which the consultant said was Grade I and involved the Endometrium and some of the muscle of the womb. Had anyone ever had a high stage with these results?

Thankyou

Hi Nina,

Grade 1 is the slowest growing cancer, so is good in terms of where you are at up to this point. There isn't any way to know how far it's spread until the doctors tell you, there's no pattern to anything. I hope that your appointment goes well tomorrow, if you struggle to sleep tonight (I always get pre appointment anxiety) I find mindfulness videos on YouTube good for relaxing me.

lots of love

Hi Nina 5252 ,

The grade 1 biopsy is important, as that makes it the slowest growing/ least persistent type. So I reckon you will still be fine even if staged at 1B due to to the penetration into the muscle.

Good Luck for tomorrow xxx

Hi Arla

Today is results day! hardly slept, had nighmares, but cant remember what they were only they were scary. I get results at 4pm today, so wish it was sooner, but can complain as diagnosis to results is one week. 

It makes me realise what an amazing astounding team my area has.

I will update you all, as this forum has really helped me.

Much Love

Nina
