    My cancer too was stage1. They did a total hysterectomy and that would have been all there was to it. When they got inside, it became stage 2. They found a baseball-sized tumor that had eaten 2/3s of the way through the uterine wall. Radiation was called for. I kept my stomach full of water to protect the other organs (14 glasses a day), and all went well. My radiation went well. First they scanned, then measured and marked my stomach. Then about 5 minutes and it was done …..5 days a week..6 weeks. Don't wait. Get it done. Thank God it is stage 1. You still have every right to be terrified. Once you are on the journey, it doesn't seem quite as scary. You are in my prayers.

    I hope your journey will be an easy one. I was your age when I got this same diagnosis in 2011. We thought surgery would take care of it, but a tumor about the size of a baseball had eaten through the uterine lining. No lymph nodes involved, so radiation only. My journey was an easy one. This is what I hope for you. Hope was my anchor. It said, "We can do this. It will not last forever." We did, and it didn't. God bless.

    This is something I had not thought of doing. If you think it will help, tell me what to do.

      I will email you the details tomorrow with an outline that makes it easy to follow. I think your story is fantastic and you are an inspiration to many. These articles are therapeutic for us as a patient/survivor, but it also helps others that are just starting.

      I'm nobody special, but, if you think it will help even one person, I will try.
