I am sorry - to avoid TMI - it seems I have led some of you to believe I am having a hysterectomy. They haven't got that far in their diagnosis process yet.
They are going to remove all the lining from my uterus in the hopes of discovering why after 15+ years of being post menopausal I am once again having (semi) regular periods. They will be doing a thorough test of the lining to see if cancer cells are there hiding from the mundane routine tests.
And thank you all for your support and kind words... I don't feel quite so alone now.
I am not sure who remembers a year ago here on The Journey........ But almost a year to the day I went into hospital to have cancer surgery.
And being a good lil patient - I have been going for my checkups regularly.
BUT a year ago when they found the cancer - I had a second growth - this one in my uterus - that they removed - declared it benign. But the symptoms never disappeared.
I have been to see yet another specialist.... tried some pills ..... but the symptoms continue. When I last saw the specialist she suggested surgery...... in 6 - 8 weeks. It is so easy to forget those things when you have almost 2 months to wait.
Well I got the call yesterday. I am going into hospital next Tuesday for the surgery. Today I got the call - pre op tests on Friday.......
One year almost to the day ......... and so it begins again.........
(whispering) I am very scared you know.
