Re: Update - Cervical Cancer 3b
I have stage 2 technically but my oncologist says it's more like 3b b/c of lymph node involvement (they are enlarged but not completely cancerous).
MY symptoms presented just like pregnancy symptoms so they were overlooked for a long, long time - discharge, pelvic pain, bleeding. The bleeding was said to be post pardum b/c it was only when the cervix was touched. They seriously thought I had a tear from birth that was being aggrevated. Thus I went on and well, now after insisting upon the tests I sit with this cancer. I also had cysts removed during the birth of my first child that I knew nothing about until recently. She's 2. My other babe is 6 months. I am 30 years old.
Anyways, radiation and chemo are my treatment plan too. Over 6 weeks. I should be starting soon but now my docs are wondering if we should remove my lymph nodes.
I'm sure everything will be fine. There are lots of people who beat stage 4 cancers. Fight hard sister!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
