Newly diagnosed- so scared (children mentioned)

i was just diagnosed with 1b2 Cervical cancer and I am beyond scared. It still feels so surreal as if it is just a bad dream I will wake from, but I don’t and then reality sinks in all over again. I just had my miracle baby 6 months ago. I’m supposed to be enjoying these sweet days of all of her new things she learns and how much she grows. I’m still breastfeeding and worried that’s harmful even tho the oncologist and her pediatrician both assured me it was fine. I have so many emotions and thoughts running thru my head. Here it is Thanksgiving and all I can do is hope it’s not our first and last Thanksgiving as a family. She needs her mommy....and my husband needs his wife. We just became a new little family.


Hi hon congratulations on the birth of your little girl and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving together. I am so sorry you have this worry the waiting is always terrible when you have had all your tests and you have a treatment plan it somehow feels easier because you know what is going to happen and what you need to do to fight this thing. Hang in there fill your days with happy things and talk through your worries, they are all valid. Love and best wishes to you x

Thank you! I’m just ready to get on with this crap. Ready for these scans so I can quit worrying. 



I am recently diagnosed with stage 1b2 cervical cancer. My son is 5 months old and I have the same feelings as you. Already been in for surgery to then find I  had a reaction to my anaesthetic so treatment delayed a little longer. My CT scan came back clear but couldn't have MRI as have an icd.It all seems very surreal at the moment. I am so grateful to have had my son now as we won't be able to have another and that's heart breaking! But I keep on trying to remain positive. All I do is look down and he sits with a beaming grin on his face. Just make sure you talk through your feelings. Good luck with everything x


Hi there... I hate that you are going thru this mess too! It’s no fun. I Busy myself and keep a pretty positive attitude about it all. I have to remind myself that this is still real sometimes. my baby is 6 months old and I am so very thankful for my miracle baby! i had 2 ectopics prior to getting pregnant with her and now this! And I know it’s done now and as it does hurt a little to think about, I am just beyond grateful that I have my baby girl and just want to do whatever I have to do to be here with my baby! I had my scans this week and get my results in the morning and I am soooo nervous! Then I guess we will talk treatment plan. What is your treatment plan? Is it squamous cell carcinoma? Did you have any tumor? 



Sorry it's been a busy couple of weeks. I had my surgery on 11 Dec and was discharged home with a Cather on 12 Dec. All was going well till the Monday when I thought my Urinary catheter had bypassed. Came back in and had a UTI. They removed my catheter and two days later was getting pain and a temperature. Ended up back in hospital on OV antibiotics. But, I have had my results and I need no further radiotherapy and chemotherapy! The relief right now is amazing I finally feel I can enjoy some special family time.


I hope.and pay the results you received were what you wanted to hear and that by now you have a date for surgery. It is tough afterwards not being able to pick up your child but to sit with him last night knowing that it is over was absolutely amazing. I cannot describe how it feels.  Mine was an adenocarcinoma picked up when I went to have coil put in post child. 


I hope you are able to enjoy some of your first Christmas
