just wanted to post a message on the 1st of march it will be exactly 1 year since i came home from work and got the dreaded letter.

my letter said i had an appointment to see the muti disiplinary team...i didnt know what this meant so i rang and the nurse explained i had cancer!!!!

i had my rad hyst on the 14th march.

it has taken me a full year to start to feel "normal" again and i am looking forward to my future.

i would like to wish eveyone new and old for all your help and support for the past year...without jo's and your wonderful support i dont think i could have got through it.

keep up the good work everyone

love corinne

Hi Corinne

What a great milestone. Tx for sharing.

Hiya Corinne
I am so glad to hear your life is getting back on track & you are looking forward to your future, I wish you all the luck possible.
I had my miscarriage last year on 9th March & there is a strong possibility I will be in hospital having either cone-bopisy or hysterectomy around that date this year. So much can happen & your life can change so quickly.. if someone told me 12 months ago there is worse to come I dont know how I would of coped, but you do, we all do.
I am so pleased to hear your health & hapiness is returning & you can enjoy the rest of whats ahead.
Best wishes

Hi Corinne,

I can hardly believe a year has passed. It's a year ago today that I had my rad hyst. I remember all of it really clearly, I don't suppose it's something I'll ever forget. But a year on, life is back to normal, and some days it just all seems like a bad dream...

We've come so far chick. I'll join you in raising a glass or two tonight eh...? :)

hi corrine

my this is a popular time of the year, it was a year ago for me on 27th feb, and it has been a quick year, by all accounts a very eventful year, but gone quickly for me, although my friend will tell you all otherwise.

but if feels good to know thats a year crossed off the calendar with many more to come.

luv to all

Hi Corinne

I am so happy for you - 1 year on - I have followed your story. I am also celebrating this month 3 years on!

Lots of love

hi that's great. It's also really useful for us who have recently had surgery to get an idea of how long it has taken others to feel "normal" again. I suppose because its not obvious from the outside (apart from the old scar!) others dont always realise how profound an effect the surgery can have both physically and mentally. At the moment I am really struggling to find the person i was before cc again. So thank you for giving me hope and enjoy the celebrations!

I echo Luce's sentiments - it's great to hear from people at different stages of recovery. I'm 6 months down the line and keep thinking I'm 99% recovered but have recently been going to bed at 8pm! I get so knackered so easily and find it hard to do anthing at all in the evening. I'm doing an undemanding job too - god knows what it would have been like if I was still teaching.

Congratulations to all of you for getting to a year and may you have many more happy anniversaries!

Hey Corinne,

Well done you! Having watched (or rather read) your story with interest, its great to see you coming out the other side. It always brings a tear to my eye when I read how life has begun to mean something again after the complete and utter trauma we have all gone through!

Onwards and upwards, a day at a time, and a long and happy life are my 3 personal goals and I'm sure its the same for most of us on this site.

Take care of U
