I'm desperately needing advice and positive stories from ladies!!
In a nutshell- was meant to have a hysterectomy for stage 2 cc but when they opened me up it had started to spread through perimetrial wall and into lymph nodes so they abandoned the hysterectomy and took out several nodes. I then had chemo/radio for 5 1/2 weeks then 2 internal brachy. I had my 3 month pet scan results Friday and although my pelvic area is clear it has spread. I have 'spots' - a couple at the top of my stomach, a couple in my lungs, one on my spine and in my neck.
Obviously I'm gutted and completely freaking out!! My Dr has said the plan is to give me chemo - carboplatin, taxon and avastin. He didn't seem particularly positive which I find upsetting.
Anyway, does anyone out there have something positive to share please?? I'm trying so hard to be strong but inside I'm terrified.
