I was diagnosed with cc on 26th February. Last week I ended up in hospital requiring a transfusion due to abnormal bleeding. During my hospital stay they were able to do the MRI, CT and PET scans. The PET scans showed abnormalities in my lymph nodes so they performed laparoscopic surgery in order to take a biopsy of the lymph nodes. I'm currently awaiting the results of these in order to determine treatment.
Whilst I'm still sore from the surgery, I think the reality of being diagnosed with cc is just settling in. I'm feeling totally overwhelmed and out of control of my own life. I'm struggling to accept that this isnt going to be sorted in a week or two and then I'll go back to my happy little life. I'm trying to put on a positive happy face for my family and friends because seeing their worry is heartbreaking. As a result theres no one I feel I can really be honest with as to how I'm feeling. I'm angry at the unfairness of it all and just want to scream why me. I was extremely happy with my little lot and happily plodding along with life when it all suddenly came to a halt on the 26th February. I hate this disease and everything it's done to me, I just want my old life back.
