I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in Feb '02 at age 37. I went thru 6 weeks of external radiation with chemo, followed by a week of internal radiation. My oncologist is optimistic about my recovery. My understanding is that the greatest chance of recurrence is within the first 2 years.
I am currently on a 3-month follow-up schedule w/my radiation oncologist. I have had 2 MRI's and one CT since finishing my treatment. I'm scheduled for another MRI next month, (at my request).
Has anyone undergone similar treatment? Is your follow-up timetable similar?
