After the operation, I had radiation therapy daily for six weeks. The treatment made me feel very tired and also affected my bowels and bladder.
But for me, the hardest part of cancer and treatment is the ongoing emotional side of it. The physicality of having treatment is one thing, but the emotional roller-coaster was the worst part. My doctors have told me to be vigilant about everything abnormal, such as any vaginal bleeding or pain. Even many years later, there is a lot of uncertainty.
Sometimes I panic when I feel unwell and rush to my doctor for reassurance. Mostly now, it feels like it was a bad dream, and I focus on living my life to the full.
