So i thought i had another week until this internal brachy starts but found out yestetday (right before chemo) that i have surgery this Thursday to insert the device the keeps my cervix pathway clear for the midevil apparatus they use. It is a three prong nightmare. That once inserted into the cervix gets hooked up and the rads shoot thru it into my uterus.
Please any advice? I get sick to my stomach when they even mention it. I broke down in tears when I told my mom. And i have to go to surgery alone! Thanks COVID! My mom can only come to the main lobby. Crazy times.
They said i have to bring my advanved directive and medical power if attorney with me. I am the first patient to have the new protocol (due to covid) and they usually roll you straight from hospital to oncology but patient transfer is not allowed (thanks covid) so i will just go home after then drive back for my afternood external rads.
This part if the treatment just seems so invasive and the nurse said it is quite painful.
Any advice or stories about this particular treatment?
Going a little bonkers over here.
Thank you in advance. And of course i am just trying to keep a positive attitude and accept these lifesaving treatments into my body. I say a little prayer/mantra asking that my body accepts these treatments and let them heal me, before Everything.
