Thumbs up Re: cervical cancer

Hi rotty,
I just wanted to tell you that I have had radiation and finished it back in October of last year. I also have had chemo (cisplatin). I have absolutely NO side effects. I was very scared going in about the possible long and short term side effects of radiation as I have heard some real horror stories but ultimately I felt I had to do WHATEVER it took to save my life and do not regret the decision one bit. I had some minor aches and pains and some bladder issues but everything pretty much resolved on it's own within a few months after treatments were completed. Everyone is different and handles treatment in different ways. I guess I was one of the lucky ones and if you need it, I hope you will be too. My Dr. told me that because of my age and the fact that I had no other health issues, I would be just fine, and I am.
Take care of yourself, try to eat right and excersise, and I'm sure you will be just fine too.
Take care sweetie.
