Hello ladies, I have found this forum to be a great source of comfort over the last week. I have read through many of the threads multiple times.
I was diagnosed with endocervical adenocarcinoma on February 19, 2021. I had a PET scan on Feb. 23, and then had a follow up with the oncologist yesterday, Feb. 26. Based on the PET scan, my current staging is 1B1, and I am scheduled for a radical hysterectomy on March 8. I have had trouble with anxiety my entire life, and the week between diagnosis and scan results was the most horrible week of my life. I felt tremendous relief after hearing that the PET scan only showed a small area of cancer confined to the cervix, my early staging is 1b, and that there is a good chance that surgery will take care of it all. However, I am already starting to panic about the small chance that more cancer could be discovered in surrounding tissue or lymph nodes.
My oncologist said there is a less than 5% chance of this happening, but still.... How do you all keep the anxiety at bay? How do you stay positive and get out of your own head?
I'm so thankful I found this forum, as you are some of the most positive and encouraging ladies I have come across since diagnosis!
