My test results

10 mins before visiting my consultant came to my hospital bed and told me that i do have cancer but no Chemo will be needed because it was all contained in the ovary. Grade 1a stage 1. I will be checked every 3 months for the 1st year and every year for 5 .

What an amazing feeling and to greet my family with the biggest smile and happy tears and then all of us have tears together but of joy will be a moment i will never forget.

Work now can get stuffed and i will find the strength to tell them how morally wrong not just me

but everyone i have spoken tofeels how I have been managed.

Phew .

Lots of smiles and love and thanks

Fantastic news, Carol.

Remember to put your health first, and take care. It gets harder to do this as time goes by, but you have had a nasty brush with this horrible disease.

Have a wonderful recovery and the future you want.

Very best wishes,



What a great Christmas present.

Plenty of rest, make a full recovery from your op then if you are up to it tackle your employment situation.

Have a lovely holiday,

I was just thinking the the grade doesn't have an a attached to it... do you mean Stage 3a and Grade 1 which is low grade? Love Tina x x


I meant Stage 1a and Grade 1 x


Dear Carol

This is absolutely wonderful news after what has been an ordeal with two visits to hospital - and your miserable employers. They should be ashamed of themselves.

I'm sure your family celebrations will continue for a long time but you are guaranteed a wonderful Christmas after such a brush with a potentially lethal disease.

Congratulations on your 1a. Let's hope you remain A1 for ever!

Love, Annie xxxx


That's great news Carol.

Have a fantastic Christmas.

That's wonderful news Carol. Absolutely delighted for you. Hope your luck has now turned.

Love Mary xx


Great news Carol!

Hope you heal up well and enjoy the festive period.



How absolutely wonderful, Carol! What a great result. I am so pleased, after all the worries of your op and afterwards. Mine was contained in the ovaries and omentum and I didn't need chemo. My op was eleven years and two days ago! Take care now, resting, getting over what has been a huge shock, physically and emotionally. Don't rush into anything just yet. Lots of pampering and treats! I hope you have many, many years of good health.

Well done to you, your family and your medical team. Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and 2014,

Love Wendy xx

That's great news, Carol- I was lucky they got all of mine out surgically and I didn't have to have chemo either!

Have a brilliant Xmass!

Life is looking amazing right now


Great news Carol. I was stage 1a too, but clear cell. 2 years on and all is well but the experience sure gives you a different outlook on life which, in a very strange way, is one of the benefits of a cancer diagnosis when it's caught early.

Enjoy the future.
