I have been a member for quite some time but I haven't had the courage to write. I am 35 years old, married and I have a wonderful 2 year-old daughter. Last September I was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 2b.
I finished treatment in mid December and I had an examination in February (CT and blood). Everything was ok.
I had another CT and blood test about 10 days ago. Blood test showed leukopenia (never recovered after treatment) and increased breast cancer indicator. I had a breast ultrasound which showed nothing bad.
The CT results came back on Wednesday and everything seems ok except for a block of lymph nodes near the spinal cord around kidney height, that are slightly swollen. So I am up for a pet scan on Monday.Doc says it could be either a met, or sth irrelevant or even nothing important.
I am afraid it could be a met.I have had an infection in the ear bone and I was taking xefo rapid for 2 weeks, and then Amoxicillin for a week. I have constipation, my thighs are slightly swollen and pain in lower back.
I am terrified. Is met in lymph nodes usual? Does anyone know anything about this?
thanks for your time and best wishes for everyone :)
