So got the bad news today, I have CC. I've been told it's at least 1B and had my MRI today and will get my staging on Thurs morn. The radiologist got really awkward and shaky when I asked her how it looked. She looked shocked tbh. As if she'd seen something really bad.
My physical symptoms were 2 occasions of post coital bleeding in May/June. I have lost a lot of weight but it could be stress. Can any of you ladies tell me, if it was Stage 3, would I have had more symptoms? Not to get too graphic but my bowel movements have been softer than usual in the past few months. My fear is it's spread to the bowel.
I have been told that I almost definitely will never carry a child because my treatment will be Radio or Hyst. My plan (as much as I've been able to make a plan) is to have my eggs frozen.
I'm fairly in shock, I know so many of you have gone through this. I am very scared.
If any of you can help to answer my q about Stage 3 it'd be great and please BE HONEST. I'd rather be prepared.
