    Ah gosh, that's a hard time because of the fasting. Eat a high fiber breakfast and afterwards treat yourself to your favorite meal!

    July 8 - PET scan shows tumor almost gone, lymph nodes back to normal
    Married July 19/14
    Sept 9/14 - repeat can shows tumor continues to shrink more, no new spots. New coughing and pain due to chest infection or side effect of radiation.

    The test went fine! I hope they call me today to schedule an appointment. I want to know what the results are and I need to get my surgery scheduled asap. I'm tired of waiting! haha.

    The doctor called me this morning and said my PET scan looks great! It appears to be confined to the cervix and hasn't spread. He said my right ovary lit up some, but he'd look at it during surgery. I'm so relieved!

    Just got my surgery date. It's one week from today. Do y'all know what I should expect for a radical hysterectomy as far as recovery is concerned? I'm really scared.

    I don't personally but know there are posters here who have had this procedure. I hope they see this and respond. Did your onc describe the process and recovery? I know you are nervous but try to focus on the fact that your doctor knows what he is doing, and that in a week you will be on your way to living a long, healthy, cancer free life.

    Hey everybody! I hope you all are doing well. Iím not doing so hot right now. I had my RH a few weeks ago and the surgery itself went fine. However, my path report shows lymph node involvement. I am devasted. I canít help but obsess that my life is over. Iím supposed to start radiation and chemotherapy in a few weeks.
