    so here it goes ive decided to share my story to raise awareness 2.9.2021 the day i felt like my hole world had fell apart the dreaded “C” word had enter my life, since march this year i’ve been going back and forth to my drs with stomach pains/ back pains to be told i had a “stomach ulcer” i was given lansoprazole and gaviscon to see how i would go things where ok i just felt uncomfortable after eating but some how drs reassured me that it was just normal signs and discomfort of a stomach ulcer, i went back a few weeks later where i was asked to produce a stool sample 🙈💩 to see if i had a bug in my gut called h.pylori and they also took my bloods two weeks later told all’s is fine, it wasn’t until around july i started being sick and losing weight, in really bad pain after eating i knew something didn’t seem right i again approached my dr i was then given an even stronger stomach acid tablets called esomeprazole 40mg sent for a ct and endoscopy to see what was going on, i went to for my ct scan an was waiting for my appointment for the camera 3 days had passed something in my body didn’t feel right i was rolling around the bed in pain crying everytime i eat so i decided to take myself off to a&e where i sat and waited 7 hours i go in the room with a lovely young dr about my age and explained to her all that had been going on and told her i had recently had a ct scan she asked if it was at this hospital i said yes so she looks on screen there i seen the scan 🤢 this horrible feeling came over me it was written all over her face she told me she was just going to check something i knew something wasn’t right. when she came back into the room she asked if there was anyone with me it was then that i said your going to tell me i have cancer aren’t you this hot feeling went through my body i kicked my shoes and socks off my heart felt like it was going to come out my chest😭💔 she kept asking if i could get someone to sit with me, i was hysterical vomiting in the sink i rang my mum she just couldn’t believe what i was saying i felt as though she grew wings an flew over the hospital she arrived so fast, that’s when we discussed what the scan had to show i was told they had found a mass tumour in my stomach and spots in my liver 💔 1st thing i said was am i going to die? i have two babies, no this can’t be right i’m 33? hearing them words will haunt me forever!!! i asked is it cancer i didn’t feel like i was taking it in what she was saying half of it felt a blur i rang my sister Rachel Strahan and let the dr explain things to her all’s i remember was the dr keept repeating i’m so sorry she was sorry she couldn’t answer my questions as didn’t have the skills to do so she was a trauma doctor use to seeing accident and emergencies she could only explain what the she could read on the notes from the scan. i was told i could leave the hospital and and specialist team would be in touch my sister Leanne Strahan and aunty Sarah Salters arrived at my mums for support the next few days i just didn’t understand what was going on i felt angry, numb, emotional i didn’t really know what to feel all’s i thought was why me, then i had to go for a camera where things could be seen clear i was then told my stomach is clear it’s in my esophgus i felt ok trying to stay positive and strong for my babies and family, the worst thing to do is google anything but it’s the not knowing and having to wait for my biopsy to come back was the worst days felt like months it’s always the not knowing and what goes through your head. i had a appointment through to attend the elective care center at aintree to discuss things i attended with my mum and step dad they have been my rock a gastroenterologist sat us down and told us what the biopsy’s had revealed this man didn’t tell me what type of cancer, what stage only that it was one of the most aggressive cancers and there wasn’t much they could do it wasn’t going to go away they couldn’t operate only have chemo to prolong it i didn’t cry i just said ok i want to go home now, i grabbed my mum outside the hospital so tight i didn’t want to let go i said mum please i can’t die she was hysterical 😭 my step dad waited behind he wanted more answers, i felt like there was no hope nothing was explained id basically been told i was going to die!!! then i had a appointment to attend the clatterbridge hosp at anitree where i meet my oncologist she was absolutely amazing she has given me hope discussed my type of cancer and treatment although i know it’s a aggressive cancer i can only hope stay positive that these treatments and trails are going to work 💪🏻i have every hope and faith that i’m going to get through every second of this and fight this every step of the way for my babies, family and friends all you’re support has been amazing please keep on supporting me through my cancer journey your support and positivity is keeping me going ❤️if something doesn’t feel right go with ur gut please don’t ingore it keep on at your doctor till you get answers even if it makes you seem crazy or a hypochondriac love you all #squamouscellcarcinoma #toughtimesdontlasttoughpeopledo
