I am a 32 year old single mom and was diagnosed with cervical cancer in December of 2004. Since that time I had surgery in which several lymph nodes were removed, internal/external radiation and chemotherapy. Also, in February I experienced 2 seizures in which they could not find any cause.
Because of this I have lost my job and had to move back in with my parents. Now I am experiencing swelling of the lower pelvic area and upper legs. I'm assuming this is due to treatment but not sure what to do about it. Also, I am having a very hard time finding employment.
I live in a very small town, with very few employment opportunities trying to take care of a 6 year old w/o any income. I am very greatful to be alive and ok for now but where do I go from here?? There aren't many people to talk to in my area and would appreciate any comments.
