I found out after 4 years of trying for a baby and being seen by consultants regularly. I pushed for a scan as I wasn’t happy with the pain and bleeding I was getting, and after many trips to the doctors and even A&E for the bleeding I was still told it was normal and nothing was wrong with me.
Obviously they fobbed me off for so long but I kept on at them and then after 3 biopsy’s & a pelvis MRI, it then showed I had grade 2 tumour, it went from cells to a tumour and my world shattered to pieces.
It went from trying for a baby to suddenly thinking I was dying and sobbing hysterically in the hospital saying i don’t want to die.
There was talk of chemotherapy which again just terrified me I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and I just wanted the cancer out of me straight away.
I needed a hysterectomy, which I had on December 19th 2017 and thankfully the cancer was contained in the womb. I had a full hysterectomy and 21 lymph nodes taken, luckily it hadn’t spread and I then had 4 lots of brachytherapy.
No further treatment but check ups needed every 3 months. I have just gone on to six monthly check ups and yes I am still a nervous wreck & heartbroken I’ll never have my own baby but one thing this has taught me is live life to the full.
I will never give up on my baby dreams and have the most amazing sister who has offered to be a surrogate for me and my husband. At the moment we cannot financially afford it but one day i will keep praying it will happen.
If ever in doubt see your GP and don’t be fobbed off.
