Woman Visits Doctor To Discuss Swollen Foot, Gets What She Never Thought About!
Cheryl Murray had to get her leg amputated as she ignored a growth for more than 10 years, which was diagnosed as cancerous by doctors. She did not think that the growth was serious, when she first noticed it, according to the Daily Mail.
Unfortunately, the growth grew over the years, and it became as the golf ball’s size. Cheryl finally told David, her boyfriend, who persuaded her to go to the doctor, in 2014.
Doctors tested Murray’s leg several times, and concluded that she had a rare form of cancer called sarcoma. Murray said she was so stunned and hysterical, and she felt like she had been punished twice in the face after knowing she would’ve to get her leg amputated.
Murray said that at first she was sobbing, but her boyfriend supported her, and proposed marriage before her operation. She continued that she tells David daily that she can’t imagine what she’d have done without him.
The 27-year-old left the hospital after her operation in a wheelchair. And fortunately, she was fitting with a prosthetic limb after starting physiotherapy.
Murray told the Daily Mail that she can’t change the past, that she never wishes that she has gone to the doctors, but she can move on with her future.
