In January, I was diagnosed with cervical adenocarcinoma. My gynecologist referred me to a gynecology oncologist, and I underwent a radical hysterectomy. I was initially diagnosed as stage 1 B. The pathology report indicates that my lymph nodes are clear; however, due to lympohvascular space invasion, I have been referred to a radiation oncologist, and have been upgraded to stage II. The nurse indicated that I would undergo 5 weeks of radiation/chemo therapy. After reading about the complications of radiation therapy, I am apprehensive about pursuing this. Yes, I am scared! If anyone has gone through this therapy, I would be grateful if you would share your experiences. Anything that I can learn about this will help me.
