Hi,  I have been through similar things myself recently so I understand all the thoughts and feelings which are going through your head right now...   I'm not medical so I can't offer any advice on your partner's situation, to be honest I don't think anybody can apart from the medical team who are now taking care of her...   And that is something you should remember, there is a medical team taking care of her now whatever may be going on with her!

 In my experience the hardest part of everything for me and my partnerw was the waiting, you will probably have to wait for results and scans and appointments etc...  That's just how it is, sosexpect it andatry not to freak out in the mean time, most ppl will tell you to try to stay strong and keep positive...  All good advice but I think it is only normal for your mind to wander to the worst case scenario, I know mine did and I found it very difficult at times... My advice is not to try and control your thoughts but just recognise when they are getting out of control and thinking up things which haven't happened. If it starts with 'what if' then it is make believe - it hasn't happened, and that thought is no good for you, what if's can go on forever.... have you been told that it could be cervical cancer?

Feel free to msg back I'm happy to chat and will answer anything I can...

Good to hear that she's feeling better after having the kideys sorted, thats one less thing for her body to deal with..  I've done quite Alot if research Into diets and supplements which could help with cancer and also different ways of relaxing and calming the mind down a bit....   I found some of it a bit of a mine field, especially the diet side of things.. there are so many books and articles out there that you can get a bit lost...   If you decide that you want to look into the same kind of things then please let me know and I can share with you what I've found ... I highly recommend aromatherapy, meditation & stretching for calming down ... Not something me or my partner have ever done, we've never been into anything like it before, but it is amazing how much it can help in times like this ...  Like I said, I've spent Alot of time researching that and diet related things, I've got a good idea of what actually has evidence behind it to show that it can benefit people... so if anything is of interest to you then save yourself some time and sore eyes from the computer screen, give me a shout and IL share anything I've found..
