I was diagnosed on March 13,2012 with cervical cancer.Stage 3 and it's about the size of a grapefruit.I don't know all the words and terms,thankfully my brother takes notes and understands what the doctors are saying.I spend most of my time looking and feeling like a deer caught in the headlights of a mack truck.
My gyno oncologist visit went good.I will be getting daily radiation and weekly chemo.I have my first appointment with the radiologist on tuesday and I was able to get the local oncologist that I wanted,so that's good.
My question is with the upcoming radiologist visit,what can I expect.I have sat here and tried to find some info on this and found nothing.
I get really scared and nervous about doctors to start with and really want to know what i'm walking into before I get there.
My brother is going with me so I won't be alone.
You know I never had a clue anything was wrong.Not any symptom anything was wrong until the week leading up to being diagnosed I had this pain that I thought was my appendix.
Now I have symptoms that most have leading up to being diagnosed.
My gyno oncologist says that my annoying pain will go away as the tumor (I hate that word so I call it my little alien) as my alien shrinks off of my nerves.
I'm sorry if I don't make a lot of sense,I am very confused at best.
I just want to know what the radiologist will do on this first visit.
