I had cervical cancer 10 years ago, but it seems like yesterday... something you don't forget. I had surgery, chemo pills, radiation and 2 implants. If someone wants to know about my experience with cervical cancer please email or respond to this message and I will be glad to give information about what I went through.

Hi, I went through the same treatment 18mons ago and are now cancer free. But what I would like to ask you, did you start taking hormones after your treatment since you lost ovarian function? What sideffects have you experienced from your treatments? If you dont mind me asking how old were you when you were treated? Any post info you can share, I would greatly appreciate.

Hello Carol61950. I had cervical cancer 5 years ago. I had radiation treatment, surgery and more radiation. I do not take hormones but use a cream. Also afraid of it comming back.

My mom was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer stage III. I think I am more scared than she is. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Did you have surgery? She just started radiation. Thanks.
