I officially ended my first week of treatment. I had the option of radical hysterectomy or chemo/radiation (I'm stage 1B2). I chose chemo and radiation, for a number of reasons.
For those that are scared, I can tell you that it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. Mostly, I'm scared of needles. But I got a PICC line inserted this week (I'm in the US - not sure if the UK has the same thing). Point being, it eliminates the need to get stabbed every week.
So far, no major side effects from the treatment, though I know it can get worse as the weeks go on. No nausea yet, but I have had some dizziness.
I have continued to work during treatment, and I believe that walking to and from my office to the clinic help with the fatigue (I know that's not an option for everyone, but they say regular exercise will definitely help).
If you haven't started treatment yet, hang in there! Not knowing what to expect is probably the hardest part.
