    Laparoscopic hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Just the unknow is scary and not having alot of family support makes me feel i'm on my own. I have a good church that support me but there is only one other lady with cancer and a good friend who lost her mother last year to cancer.

    Side Effects

    I'm worry about the damage that could be done to my bladder or rectum or will this radiation amount be enough that the cancer won''t come back.
