    Side Effects (Depression/Anxiety): Not sure if this is the treatments but I do feel tired but what is worse, I have no interest in anything. The days just seem to get longer and longer and I wonder why I am in treatment if this is what my life is going to be like.

    Radiation: Most annoying is filling my bladder before treatment. Have to have 25 treatments and only 10 more to go. Staff is great but I can hardly wait until this is over. However, then I need to do 3 internal radiation treatments that I am not looking forward to.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Now in week 4 of 5 treatments. The first treatment was the hardest, I think because I was so stressed. The following weeks have been much easier except for the increasing nausea and tiredness. However, even that is not debilitating.

    Procedure or Surgery (Robotic assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy): My quick and easy surgery did not happen that way. Developed some lung issues and ended in ICSU for 4 days. Rather humbling as I thought I would breeze through this.

    Procedure or Surgery (Conization): Had to have this day surgery to better diagnose the type and extent of my cancer.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Initially had some spotting - very little in fact but it had been a long time since I had been to a doctor.
