Hi - first question on here - Ive been reading for a little while wondering about asking this but then tonight I came across a reply to someone elses question that included the words ... "We all know that this is not a condition where they ever can say: there, all sorted - though we so *wish* they bloody would." ... and it stopped me in my tracks.
Three weeks ago I had total hysterectomy, ovaries, tubes, cervix and omentum because i had a large tumour which, before the op I had been told was likely to be borderline, but after I was told was cancer. I was told that as the op I had removed all parts that could have been worrying once the pathology results were back, and that as the omentum was clear then nothing more needs to be done at this stage. After everything I had been dreading was possibly about to be happening with me, chemo etc, to be told that its all 'sorted' seems hard for me to accept. I feel worried and keep thinking 'is that it??' 'are you 100% sure??' after all that build up. Dont get me wrong, I know this is better, I know I should be grateful, and I do feel guilty asking this, especially as so many of you ladies are having to cope with the chemo etc. but can this really be it for now? I feel a bit lost.
I was given an appointment for in three months time, and told id have another CT scan in six to re-check a leison found in my lung (which after omentum showed to be clear, I was told is not concerning to my consultant, although still to me) im having blood tests for anemia and to keep an eye on the fragmin effects but thats it. I cant help thinking that surely something more? and three months seems like such a long time.
