    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Just diagnosed with inoperable cervical cancer, I'm going through staging tests right now, I'm a 9 yr survivor of breast cancer so I've fought through this before.

    Other petct scan, chest xray, Cystoscopy, proctoscopy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Great news, all my tests showed no further evidence in my body! Like school, an A+ on all four, but without the report card to sign! Moving ahead with a clear path to the next step!
