Everyone seems to be having recurrences at the moment. Seriously, it’s everywhere! My heart goes out to everyone who has been having bad news. As if 2020 needed to be more of a shit show…
I’ve had increasing pain in my face, and over the past month I’ve been losing the sight in my right eye. Very weird. My eye has started looking upwards, and now there are big black spots that take up big chunks of my vision. Like… that’s a worry, right?
And is that a lump in my right cheekbone? I can’t remember if it always felt like that.
Is my face feeling weird because I’ve had an infection for the past few months? Or is it cancer?
So I got a call from the Admin person from my surgical team. They’ve got the results of my scans, you see.
‘So for your clinic appointment tomorrow…’
‘My what?’ I replied, confused.
‘Oh, I thought you already knew. You’ve got to have a clinic appointment before we get you in for your biopsy under anaesthetic.’
‘Oh, has no one spoken to you? The registrar made it sound like they’d spoken to you’
‘No. They haven’t. Wait, are you telling me I’ve got cancer again? What is even getting biopsied?’
‘Wait, let me have a look if there are notes. No, nothing. Can you come in tomorrow?’
‘Ok great. We’ll see you in clinic at 10:30.’
I wonder which part of me is getting cut into to confirm if the cancer is back or not?
The appointment is with my surgical team so I presume it’s my face…
