I've recently had a radical hysterectomy with lymph node removal. 3 weeks after my operation it was confirmed that 2 lymph nodes tested positive. I then had to wait 6 weeks for a PET scan, which also confirmed lymph node involvement. After discussing this with the surgeon he said I would need chemo/rads after the PET scan showed more lymph nodes where involved.
I then went to see oncologist yesterday, who says that I don't need chemo/rads, as there are only 2 nodes involved, and that I will be reviewed in 4 months. Whilst I'm delighted at this news, I can't help but think I have a cloud over my head, and I'm also confused as to why one doctor would recommend chemo/rads and another didn't. I'm also confused as to why the surgeon thought there were more lymph nodes involved last week as opposed to tHe oncologist. I'm trusting the advice of the oncologist as I know they deal with this on a daily basis.
Any advice? Thanks in advance!!!!!
