I think that feelings of being stuck in limbo is a pretty common experience. I remember feeling like that after my diagnosis. Waiting for results is the absolute worst.
I had a good prognosis. I counted myself lucky because I had a friend who had terminal cancer. My doctor reckoned I was entitled to feel sorry for myself... which I did and still do at times. I now pass this advice on to you. You are totally right that it doesn't matter what type of cancer or what stage you have, everyone (or at least most people) experiences anxiety. Don't ever feel like feeling upset isn't validated because you're not as sick as some other people. Cancer turns your life upside down and inside out, whatever the type/stage.
You would have seen the specialist by now so I hope you got some good news.
Sending good vibes and healing thoughts. x
