Wow where to begin: 1997 lung carcinoid-resected, 2001 thyroid carcinoma-resected, 2007 hysterectomy but not for malignant reasons, then in 2010 I started to notice bleeding after intercourse, long story short I was diagnosed with cervical cancer, resected in Nov 2010, and was told all 33 lymph nodes were negative, so they got it all, I was lucky again!! Now they are saying because of the prior hysterectomy, the surgical area was disturbed so they can't say 100% sure they have it all so they (received a 2nd opinioin as I say I'm getting pretty good at this now) are recommending chemo and radiation (I start on Wed). My question is, is there anyone out there with cervical cancer after a hysterectomy???? I'm 44 years old healthy as can be, active with two kids, go to the gym 5 days a week (3 of those for Zumba, coach softball, play softball, I'm what you would call "super mom"). I don't smoke, barely drink, if you saw me you would never know I'm now a 3 time cancer survivor (except for all the scars lol!!). But I am scared this time I'm good at surgery but this is my first time wich chemo and radiation.
