So sorry to hear about your radiation treatment. Your input really helps people like us in making decisions and I thank you and everyone else who replied to me for doing so.
The doctor called today and my mother decided on the hysterectomy. She can't have it vaginally as she is having too much taken out. They are removing her cervix, uterous, ovaries, lymph nodes and her fallopian tube. Yes, if there was a way, the vaginal hysterectomy would be wonderful but there is no way to do a radical that way. I too had abdominal hysterectomy due to too much bleeding and had to do it abdominally since my uterous was too high. I know that it was very painful being cut in the stomach (mine was just a bikini cut) but I think the hysterectomy choice is good so that there is no chance of spreading or having cancer in the areas being removed. She is a stage 1a2 which I believe is in the early stages. I need to look this up.
The good news is that she had a Pet Scan the other day as they picked up some cysts on her liver during a CT Scan and nothing lit up on the PET, so that's good news and one less item to worry about.
