Waiting for histology results after radical hysterectomy

I am so disappointed! I had hoped to get my results today (only based on another lady who had her RH at the same hospital a few weeks before me and when she got hers) 

just called the hospital and mine have been pushed back to next Monday. The nurse said that a few have been, and it's because they're backed up.. but I just can't believe her- In my head it's because it's bad!? 

I was supposed to keep both ovaries- and he ended up removing one. With that said, he still told me he is 90% sure that there is nothing sinister and I won't need further treatment- but.... I can't quite get my head to see anything positive. Obviously, 90% is hugely positive! I think I just strongly believe they're wrong and it's causing me huge anxiety as I really really want this to be over and not need further treatment.

Has anyone else experienced similar and it turned out to be ok?
falling to pieces yet again... and it hurts to cry right now!!

Hi charlotte 

Oh no! Thats disappointing news, its so hard to keep focused on your recovery when you still have this uncertainty hanging over you.

As you already know, 90% is as certain as anything is likely to be in the world of oncology, and the odds are overwhelmingly in your favour. 

If its any comfort, whenever ive had bad news medically, its come sooner than expected. I dont think they would hang about if there was an indication that further treatment would be required. They usually want to get that ball rolling ASAP and there'd be no sense in delaying.

Stay strong! X
