It sounds like it was caught in the early stage. I'm thinking surgery and done vibes for you. May you be fully cancer and treatment free after surgery. I'm so sorry that you have to deal w/this, again. You have a great attitude and a cute surgeon. That will take you far. Sending all of the healthy thoughts I can muster your way.
I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

Funny story time: I saw other doctors in this practice when I had my hysterectomy done for uterine cancer. I was followed for 5-7 years, when my doctor left the practice and the new doctor came on board. I was sent a letter with a picture of the new doctor. (He is my new surgeon) I thought "no way! He's too good looking and I don't want him taking a looky-lou at my private parts!" Well low and behold, my pcp recommends him and now I have, and he's adorable. I tell him this story and he turns 50 shades of red while the female resident laughs hysterically!! He tries to remain professional and calm, while I just grin! So on to my treatment to get rid of this cancer.
First, I am sorry that it is cancer. I hope you respond perfectly to all of the treatments they offer you and are in full remission in record time.
As to your funny story, I belonged to a group of doctors when I was pregnant. A few months before I delivered, they added a new doctor. He was gorgeous! I mean, cover of a magazine gorgeous! I was required to rotate between all the doctors during all of my exams so that when it came time to deliver, I was familiar with whomever was on call that day. I was in labor for hours and hours. The first doctor that was attending me was the oldest guy in the practice and one I had seen for many years for regular OBGYN exams. I was relieved that he would be delivering my baby because I really trusted him. Unfortunately, my labor went on and on and my favorite doctor was off duty before my son was ready.
Next doctor on call? Of course, Dr. Gorgeous. I was a bit uncomfortable that he was going to be the doctor to see me at my worst, but what can you do? After that many hours in labor, I was ready for anyone to yank that baby out of me. The birth ended up being a C-Section. Dr. Gorgeous couldn't have been any nicer. And after all was said and done, I was happy that he had delivered my baby. I never told him that I had feared him being my doctor like you did, but I'm sure he would have laughed.
When I went into the practice the next time, he saw me coming down the hall to be seen by one of the other doctors but he came up and asked to hold my son. He kept going on about how beautiful he was (he really was a pretty baby) and kissing his head, showing all the nurses how perfect his complexion was. I'm sure the handsome doctors realize that it is unsettling to patients. I know it is all in a day's work to them and one vagina is the same as the next to them, but we want the ones who are brilliant but look like trolls to see our nether regions, right?
You sound like a remarkable human, traveling this road with grace. May your surgery "get it all" and may you be "done" with no further treatments necessary, and this episode a small blip in the rear view mirror. Love your attitude! And congrats on your son's grad!
