Stage 1 for 1 year without treatment

My sister in law was diagnosed with stage 1 cervical cancer in October of 2003. She also had a heart attack around the same time she was diagnosed. She is only 44 years old and I am so scared for her. She has two tumors on her cervix. Her doctor suggested a total abdominal hysterectomy but she's unable to have surgery because her heart is not strong enough. Is there anyone else out there going through this? Is there hope for my sister in law? I pray there is....

I am so sorry to hear about your sister in law. I had a radical hysterectomy one year ago. So far so good but I was not dealing with heart problems. What type of options have her doctors presented to her?

I am newly diagnosed with cervical cancer and it is adenocarcinoma. Cone biopsy shows 6.11 mm x 11mm, therefore I think a stage IB? I am searching for IB, or similar, survivors to tell me about their treatment experience, results, side effects, etc. I am 51, so not worried about having additional children. I am looking for all my treatment options, so your (survivors) experience is critical. My doctor is suggesting a radical and removing everything including some 36 lymph nodes.
