Hi everyone! Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself.
I was diagnosed with 1B2 Adenosquamous a few weeks ago and have been up and down to several appts with the amazing team in the Cancer Centre in Belfast.
I was originally staged as a 1B1, told I would probably be having surgery (which needless to say I was preparing for!) but the MRI showed a 4.6cm tumour which was slightly bigger then first anticipated and which ruled me out for surgery, I was then restaged to a 1B2.
I met with the radio team yesterday and my consultant couldn’t have been nicer. Honest and informative which is what works for me!! Treatment is looking like 28 rad, 6 chemo, 3 brach. Not looking forward to the brach....but whatever it takes to blast this cancer to oblivion!!
The plan is radio and CT assessment next week, PET scan when they can get me in and then chemo assessment.
It still feels surreal, like it’s not actually happening to me, but maybe this is what it will feel like from now on?!! I’m terrified yes, but I’m ready to fight and give it my all and then get on with my life!!
Just wanted to say hello to you lovely bunch, you have honestly been my go-to most days and the one and only site I look at!! Any advice/recommendations would be awesome. Also is there anything I can be doing now to prepare myself? Are there any things that you found were necessary through treatment (practical things like clothes, body creams, etc?). I want to be as prepared as possible now!!
Love and Faith,
