Hi everyone. A fried of mine has been diagnosed with cervical cancer. I don't know the details and when I ask her, she starts to cry or changes the subject. What I do know is she's had a history of abnormal paps going back 3 years or so..., they have removed some tissue (removing chunks is how she's put it, sorry) and now she is going for radiation.. they had originally suggested a total hysterectomy but she said they think the radiation will take care of it. She goes once a week for 7 wks.. is what she told me.. but she might be holding back because she seems to be in denial and maybe doesn't want to upset me... so my questions are, does this sound like the norm as far as treatment, and other than fatigue what other SE will she experience and how can I help her..
