    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    The cancer had spread to my lymph nodes. Removed 24 nodes rather than doing the radical hysterectomy.

    Internal radiation (Brachytherapy)

    Radiation

    It hurt badly. I was so tired afterwards and I slept 12 to 16 hours a day. It burned when I peed and it hurt when I had a bowel movement to the point that I would scream.

    Money

    Oh No

    I don't have enough money to live on because I can't work and I have already used up all of my sick and vacation time during my first round of radiation and chemo.
