Hi Coll ... your not on your own hunny, I think once we have cancer, the thought it may come back is always there ... but at least we know a little more of what to look for ... so dont worry it's quite normal ... big buddy hug ... chrisie xx

Hi Col97 and welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry to read about your situation and can understand your concerns. I've included some general information we have on our website about advanced cervical cancer and survival for this diagnosis for you to have a look at but would suggest giving our cancer nurses a call to discuss this in more detail.

Their freephone number is 0808 800 4040 and are available Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

Kind regards,
