I was diagnosed with cc a couple weeks ago. Last week, I had my PET/CT scan. The results showed there was definitely cancer, but thankfully, it has not spread, and I'm at stage 1.
My doctor now needs me to choose a treatment option - either radical hysterectomy or chemo/radiation. Both are equally effective.
I keep going back and forth with my decision... surgery scares me with all the complications that can arise (not to mention that they'll take the top of my vagina). But at least with surgery, it's over and done with once. Chemo is once a week for six to eight weeks, with radiation five days per week for about the same duration.
I'm really torn... and I've done so much research.
Can anyone please share their experience? How was recovery from surgery? Is chemo as bad as I think it will be?
