Hello Goldenholly. I have only been here a few weeks myself and have discovered this is a very friendly place. I don't have any experience of cervical cancer, in fact I don't have any personal knowledge of any cancer but I have lost too many family and friends to it and I have learned a lot whilst here.  Hope you had a good Christmas and will enjoy seeing in the New Year - I understand the bells of Big Ben are being brought back into service for a short while while there is a break in the work.  New Year would not be New Year without its chimes.

Thanks for the welcome. I was fine in hospital but when I came home it was quite scary even tho I have a wonderful support system. Reading about people on here makes you realise its ok to be scared sometimes but at  least  on the days you feel like you cant cope, you can come on here. Thank you x

Hi Holly and welcome to the forum.

I hope you find lots of support, useful information and humour in here - you need to have been through something before you feel entitled to make jokes about it. 

All the best
