new to board, 3B, questions about radiation
Hi, I am new to the board.

I was disgnosed with stage 3b cervical cancer in February. I am 40.

I have had 7 sessions of chemotherapy which I have been blessed not to have a lot of side effects from.

I am slated for 5 weeks of radiation and higher-dose chemo beginning April 21.

I would really like to talk with people who have had radiation and/or women who are in the middle of or about to have this treatment.

I am quite nervous about the radiation, yet feel it is the right thing to do as well.

Anybody out there to talk about this?

Thanks in advance - Karen
