So I've been sent my admission papers - my op is 3 days after my 19th birthday, which makes me feel a little more at ease to celebrate the way I want to.
I've been getting support from my family and friends, but the most worrying thing for me is my fertility. My partner and I dream of having a huge family, but I want to be able to bring my children into the world without having to depend on someone else.
I know I'm young, but it's something that we both have to consider and think about, because who knows what will happen and what they'll find.
As you can tell, I'm a nervous wreck because I've never had an operation and this diagnosis has taken a toll on me.
Was anyone else as worried as I am when they were first diagnosed? Or is it just me? x/
