I was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2007 and after 12 weeks of radiation therapy I was given a status of cancer free. In April, May, June, July and September of 2007 I inquired about hysterectomies and was told that I would not be a good candidate. The cancer has returned and spread; I don't believe it would have had the chance if my requests for a hysterectomy were heard. My baby is 18 months old; my husband is the love of my life - I want to stay. This blog is my inside voice.
