  • June 3, 2005

    WELL. HERE IT GOES. MY NAME IS TORI AND IN JULY 2004 I WENT TO THE OB/GYN FOR A "ROUTINE" PAP TEST. 1 WEEK LATER I WAS BACK IN THE DR^S OFFICE BEING TOLD THAT I HAD HPV AND A LESION IN MY CERVIX. 2 WEEKS LATER I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL HAVING A LASER CONE BIOPSY. 1 WEEK AFTER THAT, I WAS TOLD THAT THE BIOPSY DID NOT GET ALL THE CANCER CELLS AND I WENT FOR A CONSULT WITH A RADITION GYNECOLOGIST WHO STRONGLY RECCOMENDED A RADICAL HYSTERECTOMY ASAP. ON SEPT 28, 2004 I HAD THE SURGERY. OUT OF THE 5 LYMPH NODES THAT WERE REMOVED ONLY 2 WERE INVOLVED. ON 12-1-04 I STARTED A 6 WEEK REGIME OF CHEMO AND RADIATION FOLLOWED BY 3 TREATMENTS OF BRACHI-THERAPY. ON 4-15-05 I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A MASSIVE VENTRAL HERNIA CAUSED BY A COMBINATION OF THE RADIATION AND HYSTERECTOMY. I HAD SURGERY ON 5-10-05 TO REPAIR THE HERNIA AND AM NOW BACK AT WORK. I THANK GOD EVERY DAY FOR MY GREAT DOCTORS, AND MY SUPPORT NETWORK OF FAMILY, FRIENDS AND EMPOLYER, WHO HELPED THROUGH THE HARDEST TIME IN MY LIFE.
