Sometimes i still get little stabby pains just below my navel area and probably others may have that too. I'm not sure what causes it but it might not be anything to worry about. 

October 2019 - smear test

November 2019 - results back; hpv with severe dyskaryosis, colposcopy organised.

November 2019 - colposcopy biopsy taken - confirmed abnormal cells

December 2019 - lletz performed

Jan 2020 - called in: confirmed I have cancer

Tests run through Jan and Feb. During this time went through fertility treatment; 5 eggs frozen.

End Feb - confirmed stage 2b CC (updated info, staging changed to stage 3 invlving lymph nodes)

Treatment starts March - 28 external radio/5 chemo/4 brachy

Only sat 3 chemo after developing tinnitus

April 25th - finished brachytherapy

July 2020 - MRI

Awaiting results



I had a lot of really bad lower stomach pain that continued for 3 months (it really worried me). It got so bad I rang my cns and they brought me in within the hour for a bowel X-ray (very reassuring). Thankfully my recent scans showed bad bowel inflammation and nothing else. Some people are left with IBS type symptoms from the radiotherapy. October is a little while away. I would give your cns a ring and tell them what's going on. I know mine have been really proactive when I've needed to ring them. I know they are reluctant to do scans too early as the treatment is actively working for several months after finishing. Good luck, I hope it works out fine.

 Hey Christine,

If you click on my name and go to my very first post, you will read that i too had a weird pain near my belly button. It was around my first checkup, about three months after my last brachy. So i would say that its quite normal. I too had stage 2b. You will be just fine :) the radiation is still working, it keeps working for months after treatment ends. So stay positive and try to enjoy life xxx Laura
