I have been diagnosed with stage 2b high grade serous carcinoma, and I'm bricking it ! Feel positive most of the time and then time for bed and my brain wakes up! Thinking of so many things I end up on the Internet ( last night until 4am 😳)
Don't want to freak family and friends out with my worrying .
My friends and family have been amazing, since diagnosis different groups of friends taken me out every day , lots of laughter and positive thinking 👍🏻
How this all came about - my aunt had breast cancer not long after Angerlina Jolie went public about her brca 1 , she was referred , they thought she was borderline for the test , but ( thankfully) did it, she had the gene also her 1 remaining sister and 2 brothers ( my father being 1 of them )
Then I was tested, I had the gene , we were all devastated but positive , get rid of all my bits then get on with life 👍🏻👊🏻
My breast surgery for double mastectomy and reconstruction was cancelled 4 days before due to bed crisis, I was gutted again , but I'm so glad it was.
I had a call on Friday 29th April asking if I wanted my bso on the Saturday , I bloody jumped at it, at least 1 of the ops would be out of the way 👍🏻 all went well, no visible signs of cancer my surgeon was happy, went home good recovery, no signs of menopause 😁👍🏻💪🏻👊🏻 Start planning on return to work, when the worst news was told. 2B on both ovaries and pelvic tissue.
My surgery is 2nd June , I'm having womb, omentum, and lymph nodes removed, scrapings from organs ( not sure I heard that right - a lot of info to take in ) .
I go from feeling 'I'm going to annihilate this b*****d' to ' how am I going to get though this'
Sorry for the long post
