I'm frightened

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi All, I'm waiting for results of an MRI which was done last week, I'm suffering from lack of information and fear of the unknown, I have been told (just as a passing comment) that I must have a TAH and soon as I have a mass detected by an ultrasound done 2/3 weeks ago, then for more detail they've done an MRI, it's worrying as I don't have any family (females anyway) to talk to about this. Just waiting....waiting for a call or a letter from the hospital, I rang the secretary who said I was to be discussed at next weeks meeting and (again, in passing) said maybe they'll do a biopsy first, I just want it done, I could cry with the fear and worry.....I need some reassurance ladys...HELP

    I was terrified, but didn't need to be following op I felt rough for about 24 hours then fine after that, didn't even need pain killers, went for walks as advised and was great if a bit slower on my feet

    Had to wait for results and came back benign so all good. But as for system it is rubbish and they scare the life out of you (I still don't know what it was, but just greatful it wasn't cancer, and no follow up or explanation!!!)

    but individuals are amazing my oncologist was great and did the op himself. 

    Hope this helps, from the biggest worrier in the world x

    Hi, I understand completely.  I had an ultrasound which showed something then GP referred me to a Gynacologist who did a hysteroscopy D&C and removed a polyp which was sent to pathology, it all happened so fast I was diagnosed with stage 1 endometrial carsonoma and required FAH ASAP.  It all happened very quickly.  Make sure you ask the Drs everything you want to know.  

    Take ke care and let us all know how you get on.

    Hi Pollyhen 

    Sending you a cyber hug. ..

    A really difficult thing but try not to worry, it really can become all encompassing. 

    I am 10 weeks post TAH as I had large fibroids

    If you have to have the same don't be afraid, you'll be just fine ☺, there might be times when you'll question that but honestly, you'll come out the other side.

    Good luck and keep us posted, we'll all be here to support you x

    Try not to worry... Easier said than done I know but at the moment they don't know what the mass is so try think positive... You may not have to have a TAH... A biopsy would be probably be wise as if it's benign then you might not have to have a TAH... So try keep positive and tell yourself all will be well once again.... This "situation" will soon pass... Sending positive vibes your way...
