Hello I am 32 years old and have been diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 1b1. The doctors initially advised me that I would be able to have a hysterectomy but when they went in they noticed that the cancer had spread to my lymph node and Fallopian tube I. They removed both. So they advisewoke that they wouldn't be able to do the hysterectomy and I would have to start 5 weeks of chemo and radiation. Chemo is once a week and radiation is 5 days a week. I also will have to have 4 sections of internal radiation. I am on week 2 of chemo and radiation and I feel sick to my stomach all the time and also have lost 10 pounds in 2 and half weeks. My weight is down to 115lbs. Week one I struggled with struggled with eating. Week 2 my eating has gotten a little better. They said my white blood cells have dropped and if they drop to 10 the doctors will be highly concerned. I am already starting to hate this and it's just the beginning. I also have constipation and diarrhea all the time. My hair is starting to thin out a little and the nausea is every single day.
