      Stay calm. Let the doctors do their work. Praying. God speed.

    HI--Are you in remission and how long did your chemo and radiation last?

    Oh No (Scared/Afraid): I am scared and afraid of the treatment processes. I feel all alone and don't know what will happen to my aging parents if something happens to me. Everyone says to maintain a positive attitude and dietary changes which I will work on but all I want to do is cry.

      You will go through a grieving process with all of the changes. That is normal. I found none of the treatment or surgery as bad as my imagination.

      I found facing all that goes with your diagnosis very hard to deal with, too. Please ask your doctor for a recommendation for counseling and look into a support group, especially if there is one for women's cancer patients. Probably you will feel better if you can share your feelings and if you see that others have been in the same spot and come through on the other side of treatment. Please consider also speaking with your doctor about medication to help your worry. Don't be too proud or too worried to get chemical help, too. Whatever it takes to get through all of this will be worth it, so seek out every advantage (or crutch, whichever way you view it) while you're caught up in all the cancer treatment processes. You'll be so relieved when active treatment is behind you.

      Scans are a normal part of the process. Be prepared for regular scans.

    Oh No (Cancer): Found out the cancer was pretty invasive on Monday 6/16. Oncologist said they are worried about a spot below the uterus into the vagina as well as my lymph nodes

      My cancer was discovered when a mass was discovered in my vagina. Vaginal cancer is usually a metastasis of another cancer. The specialist automatically did a uterine biopsy.
