Hi my name is Selina and I’m August 2018 I was diagnosed with my worst fear. I was back and forward to the doctors with pains in my pelvic are , irregular bleeding and bloating . I was back and forward to the doctors for about 18 months or more & each time was given antibiotics for...... kidney infection , pelvic infection , Uti’s . On assist 20th the pain was so unbearable in my left side my mum took me to a&e and was having a scan for what they thought was kidney stones . Unfortunately the scan revealed my worst fears cervical cancer which had also shown swelling to my lymph node and a shadow to my lung. I was told this was not curable but controllable . My consultant told me to look at it In the same was as some one living with diabetes, you need insulin to keep it under control or copd , inhalers to keep this under control and that’s how my cancer would treated. Some days it’s easy to think about it like that way but when having my second lot of chemo because ct scan showed some changes , again my consultant said it’s ok we will try another chemo to try keep this controlled. I was wondering if any body else is living with cancer in the same way ? Any replies would be really appreciated and maybe help to see I’m not alone in this .
