So, having been given the dreaded news, it was back to the hospital for me.
This time, for a CT scan, otherwise know as a CAT scan. See the full explanation on the NHS website here
It was only later that I discovered that CT scans in themselves are actually carcinogenic, and haven’t had another one since.
The good news was that my cancer was localised, it hadn’t spread, which meant that they could “get it all” with surgery… I think not!
