I wondered from other peoples experience...does having a cancer diagnosis ever get any easier to deal with on a day to day basis?
I was diagnosed with stage 1b on 22nd Dec 2004. I had a Rad hysterectomy in Feb this year, followed by removal of the remaining ovary in July. I now have a surgical menopause and have started HRT.
My question to you ladies is - how do you cope with day to day life? My whole thoughts seem to revolve around cancer and I really feel angry that this has taken over my whole life. I'm scared for the future and although I know that I need to take each day as it comes, I just seem to be overcome with the anxiety of cancer and the fear of recurrance. Every ache and pain I have and I become convinced that it has returned.
I guess that many of you will be able to relate to how I am feeling but, I just wondered if you could share with me any ways which you find enable to you carry on with some normality of life without the cancer ruling your every waking thought???
I can't remember a life before cancer...it seems such a long time ago although in reality it wasn't that long ago. However, I don't want the cancer to rule my every waking thought for the rest of my days. So, how do you move forward and still cope with the reality that the worry of the cancer brings us?
Sorry for rambling on....I guess that I somehow want to start and pick a few threads back up in my life but am not sure if I dare to or even how to go about it!!! Hope that you understand where I am coming from and don't think that I have lost the plot?!? :roll:
Lots of love to you all.
Radical Hysterectomy, Lymphadectomy and ovary removed in Feb 2005 following cancer diagnosis. Further surgery in July 2005 to remove remaining ovary.
