    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Dx. on Valentine Day.. I will never forget the Dr. She was great, sat and held my hand while she told me I had cervical cancer.. Never thought it would happen to me. The numbness that you feel and for the split second all alone, like surreal in a movies. After cancer you dont hear anything else.

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    When to see the cancer gyn, who turned out to be a wonderful and remarkable Dr. We discussed the options and she walked me though all the steps and let me cry and just sit and absorbed it all. Surgery was schedule, PET scan ordered, my dad coming in soon and friends calling for support. My PET Scan will be on my 52 birthday. What a year

    Robotic assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Surgery took 6 hours, problem with anthesaia , which really kicked my XXX, and the dam catheter. I feel like a train and care run over me. Great nurses and great docs.

    Decision Point

    Made the decision after speaking with the gyn on Tuesday and the Radiologist on Wednesday due to the fact that my cancer was a grade 3 and went 11/15 that 25 treat of radiation was recommended and 10 treatments of chemo was recommended. I am a little nervous and scared about the whole procedure.. this to shall pass i hope

    first day, scare. Nurse was great and answer all of our questions. I slept part of the treatment. I sucked on a lot of ice chips and ate 1/2 turkey sandwich. Received a lot of support which was great.
