Hi GBear

Thank You so much, I am cautiously confident as the scan results match the biopsy results aswell. 

Now for the operation, recovery and final results. 

Love

Nina. x

ThankYou. I was so full of nerves waiting on results I nearly fainted with anxiety. I am not a person who faints, but it made me realise how life defining something like this is.

Love

Nina

Hi Arla

I actually slept lastnight for the first time in a week, maybe exhaustion tho I dont know. I feel cautiously confident as I wont breathe relief untill final results.

Love

Hi Alison

I am hopeful after surgery it will come back completely clear...but I also know all it takes is 1 stray cancer cells to put you back.

This terrifies me.

How can you ever be sure you are clear? Surgery itself could disturb a cancer cells and it gets left behind. They will do an abdominal wash and send it off to test for any cancer cells. If cancer is not showing spread...they don't do node biopsies unless issue with spread.

I feel relief at surgery and diagnosis but still feel in a way I will be left with a potential ticking time bomb.

Hi Nina,

i was stage 1a grade 1 too and I had washings but no samples of my lymph nodes. You have described it perfectly when you say that it feels like you are left with a ticking time bomb, that's how I feel, but it does get a bit better with time. 

It feels good knowing that the cancer is out after the operation though, and I had a lot of symptoms before my surergy that are hopefully gone for good now too (bleeding and pain).

Hi Nina

I'm the same - my op was in Feb 2018 and I'm not even sure if I had an adominal wash. I was diagnosed as Stage 1 Grade 1A with LVSI but I do not have to have any follow ups or anything so it does sometimes feel as though you're on your own. I did check with my CNS about the LVSI and was told it was nothing to worry about but it does not stop me worrying on occasions! Good luck with your op
