    Other Care (Family and friends): I was blessed to have a great network of family, friend, church and work who really looked after me. I had a hard time going back to work, but after a couple a years, I was almost back to normal.

    Side Effects (Kidney damage): My mind and body will never be the same. My brothers, who are doctors, so I made the correct decision to do the radiation and chemo. I wonder, however, I I would have been ok if I had just stopped with the hysterectomy.

    Radiation (I had both internal and external radiation with my chemo): The internal radiation was humiliating. Also I did not take the time to use the dilator as I was suppose to, so my pelvic bones have fused together. I didn't have tins in the morning and I was just too tired at night

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (All of the above): I hated chemo. But the nausea drugs worked pretty good. The one that was hardest to take was the shot in the stomach to build white blood cells. I had terrible nerve pain in my back that never totally went away
