I had a radical hysterectomy 5 weeks ago and my pathology surprised even my surgeon. I am stage 1A/grade 3 and am starting chemo on Thursday. I'd love to hear from any of you about how you tolerated the chemo and would particularly love to hear that it wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. I'm having trouble finding anyone with my diagnosis: Stage 1A/Grade 3. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was my age and she, unfortunately died five years later. She was the person I loved most in the world and I can't help reliving her whole heartbreaking experience now. Any words of advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
