Not having a very good week, and its only Tuesday!
I was diagnosed with stage 3 OC in September 2012 and due to have my 3rd of a cycle of 6 chemo sessions on Friday which hopefully will shrink my ovarian tumours enough for them to be removed. I am having a CT scan on 20/12 to check how things are going.
My problem is how do I stop the awful thoughts which constantly seem to be in my head all the time, such as what happens if they dont shrink, has the cancer spread any further, if they can operate will it come back and how soon, how will my husband and 13 year old son cope without me?
I think about it as soon as I wake up every morning, and during the day I find these thoughts popping into my head constantly.
I have contacted our local cancer help centre but they have no appointments available for therapies or counselling until January.
I am off work on sick leave at the moment and I probably have too much time on my hands, but any tips or advice would be really appreciated.
