My Ovacome

The waiting is the worst

Just need to talk out loud. Feeling a little anxious. I was diagnosed with stage 3B ovarian cancer in march 2017. It took me almost a yr to get comfortable and except my new normal. I went today for my 3 month recheck and they found a small lesion on my vulva area that was not noted on my previous exams. They took a biopsy and now the waiting game starts again. I just feel deflated. Trying to stay positive but i must admit its stressing me out. Thanks for listening.

I agree waiting is the worst. We all go through this too bad there wasn't an easier way. The ladies on here give great advice. I'm not too familiar with A lot of the medical terms(sorry) but if possible try to keep your mind busy and best of luck to you XxTinaXx

Hello.. waiting IS the worst. Are you in the UK? The NHS has long waiting times but you can sometimes phone them to try and get the answers you need sooner. You just have to push a bit for it.

My only other suggestion is to do plenty of mindfulness activities like meditation, walking, swimming or spend time around bubbly people to keep your mind distracted and on other things that bring you joy.

Dobuou hdvevpeta? They can help,

I hope you get the answers soon.

Sorry to hear this, lots of empathy here on this forum and encouragement to talk out loud if you want to.

Listening to some mindfulness apps will help you stay in the moment, definitely meet with some trusted and positive friends or family to occupy yourself xxxx

I am due to meet my oncologist tomorrow for my first 3 mth review, I had a scan last week but I have had a nightly pain & I’m absolutely dreading tomorrow’s appointment I’m not ashamed to admit I’m terrified, so I totally empathise with you.

I hope the biopsy results are good for you I think all of us need a break from all this crap x

It shouldn't be long. NHS turn around time is required to be five days for a biopsy even if it is sent to an outside source. You can chase it up with the consultant's secretary. Good luck, hope it's nothing to worry you.

It is the worse I had a biopsy that came back positive, then a ct scan that showed u p swollen lymph nodes and irregularities on the top of the liver, so now I am waiting for a pet scan this is my second week waiting for a date for the scan

I am still working full time so that helps taking my mind off, but as soon as I am not busy or at home my mind is constantly worrying.
