Looking for some support

I found out on Monday that a 20cm cyst i have had for the last 18 months and that was removed during my C Section last month actually contained a 6cm cancerous tumor. It has been removed and my consultant is confident it has all gone as he removed the ovary and tube too. I have to be monitored for the next 5 years on a cancer surveillance plan starting straight away. I am feeling so many things about having cancer through my pregnancy and not knowing it, finding out i had it and that it was gone all in a couple of days has messed with my head and also the future i face of a hysterectomy, monthly scans and blood tests for the next 5 years but also i feel lucky and grateful that i didn't know this when my baby was born and that it has all gone.

Although i have so many people around me, i have never felt more alone.

Mods, i had no idea where to put this so please move it to where you feel appropriate

Can't imagine how you are feeling, but guess this will take some getting used to. You aren't going to find a way to deal with it straight away, it will just take some figuring out.

Sending you the best of luck and lots of support as always.

Oh sweetheart, I'm not surprised youre in turmoil. What a head fudge! I don't really have any advice to offer I just wanted to send you a big hug and tell you not to put pressure on yourself to feel anything in particular. In my (limited) experience a thunderbolt like this will knock you for 6 and it just takes time to get your head round it, chose a friend or two to talk it over with and just keep talking....

lots of love

Blimey Pots! What a total head f*** that must have been!!

I suppose the first thing is to say thank God it's gone and that it hadn't spread anywhere else in the time it was sat in your body! Are you having to be put on any radio tx or anything?? I know noone can predict the future but :pray: for you that this was an isolated incident and that they won't have to mess with your womb or anything else.

Having got 2 parents who've had the "big C" I know (second hand) what a chore it is to be reminded of what you went through by having to be closely monitored. But there's also surely got to be a bit of comfort knowing that you will be taken very very good care of? (I myself have to have scans every 4 months for the rest of my life coz my disease attacks my repro organs - and even that's depressing, so can't imagnie how stressful it will be for you!!)

I defo think you need to speak to someone about this. Coz the worry and amazement about what happened to you will creep up when you don't expect it, and overwhelm you if you're not careful.

Sending you loads of strength hun.
