I was diagnosed late October and am in the final stages of consultations before a treament choice is made ( will probably be HDR BT ) and treament begins. I have consulted with CTCA, RCOG, Emory Winship and will be visiting MDACC on the 14th.
Based on these consultations I think the cure outlook is good buy honestly the process of consultations, insurance, varying opinions fron Dr's and last and most importantly the waiting... and "unknowns" has worn me very thin. I began having panic attacks, can't sleep and have a hard time focusing. I am puzzled at the way I feel. I was the toughest SOB around until this hit. I am truly hoping that most of this anxiety will pass after my visit with MDACC and treatment begins as there will be a clear path.
So question to all is are these feelings common? Is group discussion a good remedy? What else can I do? Is it safe to assume much of this will subside after treament begins and the waiting is over?
Thanks in adavnce for the input.
