I got my results and official diagnosis on Friday.
The tumour is big (I forgot to ask the measurements) and has grown out of my cervix into the surrounding tissue. They've graded it 2b.
I'm feeling good about it. I mean, it's not what I wanted. It's not all a big mistake, for one! Oops daisy, we thought it was cancer but it's just a bit of loo roll rammed up your chuff! It's not teeny weeny and super early, it's not even operable, but it could have been much, much worse I guess. Its still treatable. This is good news.
I'm going to have a PET scan next week, hopefully, and then my radiotherapy and chemotherapy will be planned.
The only thing I'm really anxious about right now is telling my mum. I'm her only child. And she's all alone, isolating.
Other than that, I just want to fight this stupid thing. How dare it invade my body.
