    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Complete shock and devastation because I never missed a gyne appointment and nothing showed up until 12-13-2005. I kept complaining about pain in my groin on the left side. One doctor told me cancer doesn't cause pain.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I don't remember much because chemo fog is real and after a year, I am afraid it might be here to stay! I live in Delaware and my wonderful husband not only took excellent care of me, we drove back to Pittsburgh every 21 days for five months for the chemotherapy. I have the most wonderful doctor in Pittsburgh, PA. She is a Gyne/Oncologist and I trust her with my life. I did radiation in Delaware at the Beebe Tunnell center which was more difficult than the chemo.

    Hair is back

    Celebration

    Losing my hair tore my heart out because I always consided it my safety net to hide behind.
