Back in October I had an abnormal pap smear for the very first time. Earlier this month I went for another exam and they did a biopsy. Turns out I have stage 2 cancerous cells... yippie me... They are going to schedule a surgery to remove all affected tissue.
Thing is my husband is deployed and he can't help me and no one on my family is really willing to help watch my kids while I recovery from the surgery. They are acting like it's not a big deal. Same with my husband.
I'm freaked out about it and no one seems to care. They act like it's like a simple common cold.....
Has anyone been positive for the cervical cancer? How did you handle it? Who was your support?
I feel like I'm alone. No one really will talk to me about this and no one I know has gone through this.

I have just recovered from Cervical cancer. I had to have a hysterectomy and then chemo and radiation because there were cells in my lymph nodes.
I have a great support system! My family and friends were there for me and my kids are older, 11, 16 and 17.
Are you having a hysterectomy? Are they checking your lymph nodes for the possibility of it spreading? PM me if you want to talk about it.
