I'm a nervous wreck

Can someone tell me how you know what stage of cervical cancer you are in?  My appointment is a week away--which I think is cruel.  My gynecologist diagnosed me with cervical cancer, but never told me a stage (I think she doesn't know).  I have to wait a week to see a gynecological oncologist.  I have no other symptoms other than bleeding.  I am sick with worry b/c I have a dog and two cats that I love very much and have no one to take them if I die.  Please help.

The waiting is the absolute worst part of the journey! It is impossible to know what stage cancer is at without further testing. It is likely you'll have biopsies done and scans as well which will give your medical team the answers needed to plan your treatment. 

Easier said than done however try to relax and focus on the positives in your life. Spend time with your fur babies, try some yoga and meditation or any other form of self care you enjoy. I hope you get some results sooner than later ?

I was diagnosed with 2b2 cervical adenocarcinoma last November, had radiation, chemo and brachytherapy in January and February, was told I was in remission in June and still in remission in September.  Just keep a good sense of humor, stay really positive, keep your faith, reach out to friends and family, and take all the help that's offered, because you will need it.  Fatigue is the worst, nausea/diarrhea a few days a week is tough.  Eat everything you want and can eat, and be very selective when you can't.  Be sure to reach out to family and friends though and understand that your diagnosis will be hard even for them...   Best of luck to you!!!
