    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    I was just about to celebrate being 5 years cancer free when I started to have female problems. I had skipped a yearly check up and when I finally got in the the Dr it was too late. I think I freaked that poor Dr. I was diagnosis with Cervical cancer. They refused to do surgery because they said that if they did it would make the cancer spread.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had to do do chemotherapy and Radiation for 4 months. It really wasn't that bad. Just like before it just made me tired. Then I went back to my normal like. The radiation really done a number on my body. Here it is nearly 10 years later and still not perfect, but at least the radiation was able to get all the cancer.
