Is there anyone out there with cervical cancer? I have been stuggling to find someone out there that I can talk to about my cancer that understands what it is that I am going through. I have a great boyfriend who has had throat cancer but it just isn't the same. So if you are out there please let me know I am not alone.

 

Thanks

Ladies, it can be a little quite here sometimes so I would suggest the National Cervical Cancer Coalition as well.

Hello ladies. I also have cervical cancer. Dx was in November 2017.  I have had chemo and external radiation. I have an appointment on Feb. 14th to get a 2nd opinion because the place I was getting help and treatments from weren’t listening to me, and continued to cause me stress on top of an already stressful situation. It is scary. It is tough. In talking to folks on here about any cancer I’ve been encouraged.  I know what you mean by a different cancer. I’ve had a few people who know of a different kind and compare it to what they know and the treatments, meds, side effects, etc are not the same.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2017 and have been through targeted radiation and weekly chemo and now on a follow-up chemo regime that was successful with ovarian cancer patients. Then PET scan to see if any of this has helped. My chances of cure aren't great, that's for sure. We'll see. Scary place to be, this in-between space we all live in!

I have recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer. A few moths ago I had my first abnormal PAP. I was referred to a Gyn for a colposcopy which showed CIN 3 squamous cell lesions. From there I had a LEEP procedure two weeks ago and was told the cells are cancerous. Tomorrow I will have my first appointment with the Gyn oncologist for a consult and am very stressed out about it and scared. My family has been a great support as well as my friends. But as you know its even better to be able to talkyou are going through. Reading your stories has been helpful because it reminds I am not alone and I too will survive this.

Hi, I too was diagnosed in Oct. of 2017. I had a radical hysterectomy and my margins showed no cancer which was great.  A week after surgery got an infection and developed a fistula,I now have a catheter and double nyphrostomy tubes. This is certainly not fun waiting on another specialist to see if they can repair it. When I started having symptoms I was not forceful enough with the Dr. staff and perhaps it would not be this bad. Research your people and make sure you feel comfortable even if you have to wait to get another Drs. Opinion.  I have definently gone through depression but I do have good support and I hope the same for everyone. I am glad I found this site.

Aztex, I am sorry to hear the extra problems that have developed since your surgery and have had to deal with it for all this time.  Don't worry about what you didn't do in the past but use that for the next round you will have.  I am glad you have a good support system - that is wonderful

You are not alone. It looks like from your date, we were diagnosed very close to the same time. Are you still going through treatment?

I had Cervical Cancer back in 1996.  Didn't know it was cancer until they did a partial hysterectomy.  Due to that I had 6 weeks of external radiation and three doses of internal radiation.  I am a survivor.  Keep positive.  Get all the support you can from friends and family.  You will get through this.

My daughter is a cervical cancer survivor. She finished 35 external radiations and 7 internal radiations. Only to find out last week it came back in para aortic lymphnodes(2). Only 1cm. So more radiation. I’m looking for survivors of this so I can tell her

I have been battling cervical cancer due to high risk HPV Virus.  Any news on antiviral medication for these high risk virusesa?

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer, stage 1b1, in January of 2018.  The diagnosis came as a result of the pathology of a total hysterectomy for endometrial cancer (1a).  Since I had the wrong type of surgery (not a radical) and no lymph nodes removed, it was decided to do 5 cisplatin treatments with 25 external and 2 internal radiations.  Just wondering if any of you who have finished treatment have experienced back pain?

It has been 10 years since diagnosed, treated, and labeled cured. However, the long term affects are beginning to set in. I have bouts of extreme pain in my gut, intestional blockages and partial blockages, can't eat much of anything, and holding down a job is becoming increasinly more difficult. I had 3 months of radiation externally and internally - stage 3b cervical. I am looking for suggestions on how to live and work with this problem. It is getting more and more difficult.
