When Rosie lost her mother, she naturally believed that her physical symptoms were manifestations of her grief, as explained by
Between us. She suffered from abdominal pain and intense sweating, which she thought was related to stress. This difficult period in his life led to rapid and worrying weight loss.

Despite her attempts to stay positive, her condition did not improve. His symptoms became more and more unbearable. It was then that she made an appointment with her general practitioner, hoping to finally find an explanation for these persistent ailments.

A diagnosis she didn’t expect at all

After a series of extensive tests and examinations, doctors discovered that Rosie suffered from an advanced neuroendocrine carcinoid tumor. This news was a shock for the young woman, who did not expect such a revelation.

Doctors quickly decided to perform surgery to remove his appendix and the lower part of his intestine, which had become too thick. Following this first intervention, the final diagnosis confirmed the presence of a rare and aggressive tumor.

“I was completely shocked when I learned of the diagnosis”

Faced with this diagnosis, Rosie had to undergo another operation to
remove three quarters of his intestine. This intervention was heavy and the healing time promises to be long and painful. “I was completely shocked when I learned of the diagnosis. It was really upsetting and I stress that it’s a rare tumor,” she told Plymouth Live.

Rosie is now awaiting the results of her biopsy to decide on further treatment, which could include a complete removal of his intestine and the use of an ostomy bag. Despite everything, she remains positive and remains hopeful about her recovery.

“Since I had my tumor removed…”

Rosie now wants to raise awareness of the importance of not ignoring worrying symptoms. She encourages people to see a doctor whenever they experience persistent discomfort. “Since I had my tumor removed, my heart murmurs and severe sweating have stopped,” she explains. “It’s scary to think that it’s because my body was basically in overwork.

She emphasizes that women’s symptoms are often attributed to hormonal causes or menopause, which can delay a correct diagnosis. “It’s scary how easily these things can be misdiagnosed. People have died from this cancer,” she recalls.
