Hi there, I'm 29and was diagnosed with cervical cancer 4 months ago. I've completed 3 round of chemo, had surgery and unfortunately one of the removed lymph nodes tested positive for cancer. So my next option is intensive chemo/radio for 6 weeks to eliminate eall risk of it coming back OR I can do nothing and hope that I'm cancer free and monitor. I'm really struggling with the decision as the permanent side affects of pelvic radio are horrible (damaged vaginal tissue, damaged bowels/bladder, menopause etc. Can anyone who has experienced this at a young age share wh me what side affects they actually experienced? Desperately seeking your help and appreciate anyone's comments. Private message me if you'd prefer not to public blog. Many thanks, Chantelle xx
