I have been told today I have stage 2B cervical cancer. My treatment will be radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The cancer has stayed in my cervix but spread into the surrounding tissue.
I am relieved that the cancer has not spread but I am now aware that radiotherapy means no more children! I only have 1 child he is 11 months old, I am 27 years old and I wanted more children. I feel good that the cancer has not spread, but debaststed about no more children. I loved every minute of my pregnancy.
I also am confused with the treatment. What are my chances of complete recovery/survival? I wasn’t given this information today as they didn’t have the statistics at hospital. I would like to speak on here with people with the same staging and know their stories. The people I have told seem to be really upbeat and positive but am I right in saying it’s not as straight forward as that? I understand the treatment is to shrink the tumor?
Also, do I have anymother options other than to have my eggs frozen?
