Hi, I have advanced CC and I wasn't given the option of an operation due to the grade and size of the cancer so instead I have had chemo (which is a lot more intense than what you will/would have due to my grade), 28 radiotherapy sessions and I am 1 session into 3 sessions of bracatherpy. I have been so poorly throughout all of the treatment from throwing up, not being able to eat, loosing so much weight I am now a size 6 and skin and bones, I suffer daily with internal pain and pain every single time I go for a wee I cry it's that bad (I doht cry in pain btw) but today the internal pain has been so bad that morphine hasn't helped and I've got to go into hospital to get the pain under control as I can not walk because the pain is so intense.
The hospital will decide what treatment is best for you they maybe able to operate and this may get rid of it all or they may decide to go with chemo and radiotherapy - you must trust your doctors as they know how best to deal with it. Having treatment for the sake of it - they won't allow - and I also wouldn't recommend at all as you need all your strength to beat this! As I have said I have advanced cancer and my last scan has shown that the cancer has gone from being huge to the size of a pea! So if I can do it so can you.
You will always have the thought what if it comes back I think about it often but this side tracks me as I have had a positive outlook on all of this as I've had to really! And having that outlook I feel has helped me emensley
I hope you get treatment good news that it hasn't spread xx
