Cervical Cancer, anyone else with the same???

Re: Cervical Cancer, anyone else with the same???

Hi Tracey, Not to scare you but my first lot of treatment finished in September 2010, just last week we found it has come back. I only had external radiation and it really wasn't that unpleasant. Apart from a yellowish tan around the areas that were exposed to the radiation, which eventually faded, and 3 tattoo's the size of a pen point I really didn't have any bad side effects. This time round though they are discussing both internal and external radiation and chemo. I find out tomorrow what we'll be doing. Emotionally it has been easier to deal with this time. It's harder to stay positive that we'll beat it this time but I'm confident as I have a great team. I'll also feel better if we're hitting it with every treatment imaginable. I just want to blow it out of the water! Good luck with your meeting tomorrow, I'll be keeping you in my thoughts!

Re: Cervical Cancer, anyone else with the same???

I'm so sorry to hear this is your second time round, surely once is enough hey. I have been warned already that because mine is invasive that there is a chance that even with treatment now it could return in the future, but like you I am a fighter and I know that we will both beat this thing, no way in hell is the bastard beating me! Amazing that we are both getting such major news tomorrow, I will be thinking of you, your not in Melbourne are you? I hope it all goes well this time around, please keep me posted as to what they decide for you. I'm glad you have such confidence in your team of doctors too, must make it slightly easier knowing that they truelly are doing all they can for you and that you trust in their decisions. Good luck tomorrow, I hope you have a lot of love and support around you, please do let me know how you get on. Take care Trace.
