hi my name is kristi and I am 34 years old. I was diagnosed with cervical ca.in 2000 I had 5 weeks of external radiation and 2 internal radiaation implants. Well, in 2002 the cancer came back and it was on my spine and pressing on my siatic nerve and making it hard for me to walk. So, i had 2 weeks of radiation and a whole year of chemo. well, in 2004 the cancer had came back again and it was on my right lung. They did 2 weeks of radiation. then this year it is back on my right lung and on the right side of my neck. I received 2 weeks of radiation and 3 brachytherapy implants. So, far I think the one in my lung maybe gone, but the one in my neck has returned. The radiation doctor says no more radiaiton for me that i am maxxed out. surgery is out of the question and my chemo doctor says for me to prepare for the worst but hope for the best because they were running out of options for me. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or has anyone had the similar experience and would like to share it with me? I am getting down and depressed and afraid that there is nothing else they can do. please anyone if you can help i would greatly appreciate it.
