Hello all you lovely ladies
I do hope you're doing ok.
i thought I'd do a little post about how I'm getting on... when I found out I was having a trachelectomy i couldn't find much information, seems it's becoming more popular recently!
Well I can't quite believe I'm 12 weeks post op today.. I'm still not quite back to the old me but I'm so close now!! I went back to work 6 weeks ago, and now it feels like I was never away. Right back in there! Im not suffering any discomfort just occasional swelling.. Apparently this is quite normal and it could also be due to my hormones going crazy! Going to try a little bit of gentle exercise this weekend to see if this helps.
My scars... Only one annoys me on my right side, more because I can still feel it healing and my internal stitches are abit itchy!
My consultant told me to go back on the pill this month and after abit of umming and ahhing I decided to! It will also help my periods to become abit more stable! They're generally ok just abit erratic! Plus I'm not allowed to even consider babies until 2 clear smears.
i had my first check up the other week and although it wasn't my proper one my consultant was pleased :) and I go to see him again next month for a smear.. It was weirdly really nice to see him! I wasn't worried and im looking forward to putting these weeks, months and years between me and my cancer experience!
i've met some amazing ladies on here and I want to say thankyou to every one of you that has helped me through this, I feel blessed!
