Hello I have recurrent stage 3 cervical cancer and am scheduled for a pelvic exenteration. I have done a lot of research on the web and feel that your friend should follow her doctors advise but look for alternative treatments in addition to her normal doctor. I have found several of these facilities, ( the oasis of Hope in Mexico) the issels treatment in San diego and one in the bahamas) a search using these terms will bring up results. God bless your friend

Stage iv Cervical Cancer and Hope

I have been dealing with Stage IV cervical cancer (adenocarcinoma) since December 2002. Very briefly, I thought I was in remission, but a subsequent scan showed metastases to the lungs. I've had surgery and 6 more months of chemotherapy. My tumors continue to grow in number and size. Right now, I'm getting high dose IV vitamin C and taking numerous oral supplements, and I'm scheduled for another CT next week. BUT, in spite of it all, I am currently living a great life. I've had lots of time to think about not surviving this cancer and to feel hopeless. It only takes time and energy away from what I have right now. Be here now and savor this time. Who knows, it may go on for a long long time. Savor it anyway. I know this is easier to say than to do, and certainly I have days where I still cry a lot. So, don't let go of hope -- just be more open to what you hope for. Hope for joy and peace and wonderful times together. Hope that your friend isn't in pain and can enjoy her life. Hope for strength to accompany her on this long journey. Bless you both. Christy

I had my first abnormal pap smear in the late spring of 2005. I then had a colposcopy followed by a LEEP. After my leep my doctor told me it was worse than they originally thought and they were unable to get all suspicious cells. He also told me that the ones left were this highest grade of precancerous cells. After my LEEP I had intermittent fevers for 2 weeks and each time my doctor told me to stay at home and wait until the fevers were over 103 degrees before worrying. I haven't had fevers since September now, but I have had spotting between periods and I bleed really bad everytime I have sex with my boyfriend. We stopped sleeping together because of this for the last month because it just kept getting worse. I also have had random abdominal pains and I am not sure if they are related to what is going on. I haven't been diagnosed with cancer yet and I only recently regained health insurance so I am not sure what to do. I do have another pap smear scheduled on Jan. 16th, but it is with a new doctor (as I recently moved to a new state) who is unfamiliar with everything I have been going through for the last 6 months. I am afraid that the cells are progressing faster than usual and I am being treated improperly because doctors are going by the books. Can someone give me advice??

Worried About Cervical Cancer

Go to a gynecologic oncologist for your next exam. Don't wait until January if you don't have to. They can do the pap as well as a biopsy, if they deem it necessary. Don't wait around. I had many of the same symptoms. I wish I'd gone sooner. Good luck. Don't delay. Christy

stage 1v cervical cancer spread to bone in lowest part of back

I was diagnosed with stage Iv cervical cancer the end of May 09. Since then I have had 30 radiation treatments and 4 chemo treatments. I am taking 100mg of morphine every 8 hrs. with 45mg every 2 hrs. if needed for breakthrough pain. Needless to say I have no pain and function well. My problem is that I have lost feeling in my bladder and bowels. (You get the picture?) I never know when I have to go.... until I go into the bathroom and find that I have already done so. I wear pads during the day and diapers and pads at night. Has anyone else experienced this? This is my 1st time posting.

Last week I saw my doctor, I have been having alot of lower abdominal pain, spotting, discharge, pain during and after sex, beeding after sex, back pain, extreme fatigue and ive lost weight. There has also been some incontinence of the bladder He told me that after my last pap smear there were abnormalities found but not followed up, his thoughts are that I MAY have an abnormal growth on the cervix. Now Im waiting to hear from a gynocologist and an ultrasound has been ordered as well. Im absolutly terrified, I am a single mother of two small boys. I cant stop thinking about the possibility of having cancer.

I would love to hear some feedback from other woman who do have cancer, encouragement hope, tell me if my symptoms are indeed a sign. I realize worrying about it isnt going to make it go away, but i cant stop thinking about my sons.
