Right so I went to see the consultant on Monday.
Further to the fact that the Zoladex has done absolutely nothing, the pain is back to the same level it always was before if not worse, the bowel issues are back, the bloating is back, and the worst part is I have been bleeding every day for the last 9 weeks despite technically being in the menopause it looks like the consultants are shocked that it is this bad only 5 months after my lap and want to get it and sort it out.
This now means that I am going under the knife again at the end of May/ early June. As well as the millions of places it already is in my body they now seem to think that it is growing inside my bowel as well as on the outside. This now means that it could be a laprascopy but most probably a laparotomy to look at my bowel and get rid of the other regrowths.
My main worry is now the fact I had to sign to consent a a laparotomy, a possibility of a colostomy bag and the possibility that my left ovary may have to be taken out.
Some days I am completely okay with this and this is just another challenge and obstacle that life throws at you. Then the other time there is the part of me that thinks why me I'm only 21. This is affecting my career prospects already, it is affecting my finances in the fact that I am trying to move out, get married and have kids as soon as possible. It's affecting my relationship with my moods and how I generally feel.
I just thought I would update the blog with how things are going with me and my story as there may be some of you interested from my last blog or there may be people out there who don't talk to anyone about their problems and so I will voice mine to say its okay to have the down days and feel like crap its a disease with no cure and for me right now acting like a cancer I can't get rid of.
But hey good days and bad
