First I will like to thank everyone who has made effort to shower me support and asking me to stay strong. Yes I do, I live normally, eat normally, I blog and my life definitely goes on.
I cried, I feared. Although I still have the thought that the cause was merely due to I was wanted to have second kid and yet the outcome is unbelievable. I stopped asking myself why. No point. I won’t have answer. This is life, and this is my life.
Yes it is official, medically I am at STAGE 1 of Cancer. And I have more than 90% of recovery chance.
I am young, (less than 40). My HCG is not more than a thousand. This was found out within 4 mths. And it is still contain in uterus. (According to CT and MRI Scan, none of my body was affected, except there is abnormality in uterus.)
The treatment had started.
I was given two jabs. Both on backside. The jabs need to be done weekly and again I will be monitored through blood test. In any case, this still can’t bring my HCG down, (which is very unlikely), I will have to consider to remove my uterus.
I was enlighten after reading the article above in my gynae’s clinic. I realised, I was lucky. I was detected so early and I will be saved.
I was sent by Dr Wong back to Dr Chan’s clinic for a final check around my uterus, ovary and tubes before the jabs were given.
Some of you might want to ask, even my sister and colleague told me to get second opinion. In my case, I feel there isn’t a need.
First molar pregnancy is rare. (How many of you have heard of this?)
Second, I believe I have the best gyane. (Perhaps he might not be the first gynae in Singapore, but he is the best in my eye.) He had did so much read up for my case and he is also analysing my case with another oncologist.
And lastly, I like Karmen Wong. She is exactly like my gyane. She is systematic and truthful. She told me, the last patient she had treated due to molar pregnancy was 10 years back. Certainly she is reading a lot about this and at the same time, (She shown it to my gyane and my gyane told me about it) she was checking my case with another 2 more oncologists. (Yes I trust the integrity of these doctors.) So although I was reviewed by these two doctors phyically, but all in all, there were 5 doctors working on my case.
So there is no need to seek second opinion for this case because it is really not common and of course, even you tell me how good the oncologist is, I might not able to afford the fee.
Lucky I have a policy to cover the co-insurance. I have spoken to my agent and she will be meeting me next week to help me to submit the claim. I hope everything can be claimed but I know the chance to claim those bills caused by pregnancy is low.
I believe I will be fine…….
