in 2012 at the age of 35 I was diagnosed with stage 2 Cervical Cancer. I had a radical hysterectomy, chemo and high dose radiation therapy. After 5 months of treatment they cleared me and said my cancer was cured. Now, almost 2 years later I have noticed some issues. Over the last month or so I have had blood/mucous in my stool. Almost every time I go. Often there are clots in it as well. I finally went to a clinic last week where they sent me for blood work and asked me to provide a stool sample. Now I am waiting rather impatiently for those results. Has anyone had experience with cancer coming "back" but in a different spot? I'm terrified to be honest and my mind is going to all the worst case scenerios. The first time I was "sick" I was certain I was NOT and then BAM! How wrong I was... I've been researching on line causes of rectal bleeding, but I am afraid that makes my anxiety worse! I'm pretty sure based on WebMD that I have 9 different kinds of cancer and my insides are going to fall out! (LOL)
A little guidence or some opinions would be super!
