complete vaginal hysterectomy
I did 6 wks chemo and five weeks radiation. I had to do radiation every weekday for five weeks. I did chemo five times, it was every Monday for three hours. I would not do the port they put in your chest, I took and Iv in the arm. They gave me two bags saline solution, one bag steroid and one bag of the chemo drug cisplatin.

Colposocopy May 2009, LEEP June 2009: Extremely painful getting the painkiller shots (aparently I have a sensitive cervix). The recouperation was fine but I asked for pain meds and that helped sleep it off. Just a suggestion. Cone Biopsy July 2009: Opted to 'go under' this time and it went fine. If you have good insurance and are considering it I reccomend it. I woke up, went home, slept a lot and was back to normal within a couple days.

DaVinci Robot Assisted Radical Hysterectomy and Bilateral Lymphadenectomy (kept both ovaries). 5 incisions in abdomen, little pain, quick recovery (up walking around that night and home the next day).
