    Abdominal hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I did not have a hysterectomy until jmy recurrence two years after the first rounds of treatment. Because SCCC is so rare and aggressive they felt there was no time to wait around for healing from surgery, we needed to get the chemo and int/ext radiation going. 6 months later I was cancer free...which really beat the odds. Two years later I had a recurrance to the pelvic area. Ihad removal of my rt ovary then chemo them full, cut open the stomach and pull out the insides husterectomy. It had to be done this way as I had so much scar tissue from radiation it was a very difficult procedure.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree

    Diagnosed with Rare andAGgressive Cervical Cancer with no known treatment and deadly prognosis.

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Small Cell Cervical Cancer. It is very rare and aggressive. There is no set protocol for treatment and has more than an 80% fatality rate in the first two years. I was first diagnosed in 2006....I am here with one recurrence, but cancer free now almost three years.
