Hi Leanne

I'm sorry you are having these symptoms after years of doing good. But try not to panic even though it's probably going to be the only thing on your mind until the 16th. 

Hopefully some lovely ladies who have had the same thing happen can give you some information about their experiences. 

Wishing you well.

Hi Leanne,

Are you on HRT, those symptoms could also be atrophy due to menopause.

If the cancer has occurred there may be surgical options for you rather than chemo. 

Good luck,

Hiya  hope your well Karen I'm not on hrt I just see people with recurrence and I presumed chemo would be the next step I wasn't sure they would cut it out as they didn't the first time  ❤ leanne

No, surgery is the preferred option as that is intended to attempt a cure. Chemo is offered if surgery isn't possible and it's generally considered palliative although I know of a couple of ladies just recently who have done extremely well and gone on to have the surgery. 

You are jumping the gun mind, you may just need oestrogen cream and it's nothing more than that.
