"vulval Cancer"

About: Rosie Hospital

in 2001 I was treated for vulval cancer at The Rosie after having been treated at a different hospital in Bedfordshire. I arrived 10 minutes before my appointment with my husband and daughter. I was called in at the exact time of my appointment and my family were made as welcome as I was. I had a local anaesthetic and we were all able to watch the treatment on a screen. I felt no pain and was very,very impressed by the knowledge and caring way of the surgeon and all those involved in the treatment. It's now 2015 and,once again,there's a possibility of more cancer. But instead of feeling fear,I am 100% sure that,whatever the outcome,I shall be treated with the utmost respect and care and gentleness.
