This is to Debbi. I was 54 when I was diagnosed with Stage 1B cervical cancer. I had a radical hysterectomy. My doctor removed 15 lymph nodes. Only one node had metastasized. The tumor board recommended simultaneous chemo and radiation treatments. It was no picnic, but that was almost 4 years ago, and I am doing great. In fact, when I reached the 2-year mark, my oncologist said I had only a 5% chance of reoccurence. If your doctor recommends radiation, be prepared for some side effects such as fatigue and diarrhea. I\^m so thankful I had excellent medical care and the love and support of my family and friends. I will keep you in my prayers. Please post updates so I can cheer on your complete recovery!
