I had cervical cancer in 2004. I had a radical hysterectomy, disection of lymph nodes and removal of the upper potion of the vagina and six weeks of chemo and 30 radiation treatments because after surgery the margins weren't clear. I was suppose to have 36 radiation treatments and internal radiation but I stopped short, long story, my decision. I also moved to another state and have not been as confident with my new doctor. What are the symptoms of recurrent cervical cancer? I just found this site and wish I had many years ago. Doctors don't seem to help with what happens after the surgery and radiation. I'm just trying to figure out if the pain and soreness from my stomach area, massive lower back pain and a host of other issues are from radiation or something else. My doctor just said it is probably scar tissue and I would have to live with it. I'm sure it is just me being paranoid.
