I've been dipping in and out of this forum since I was diagnosed with CC 1b1 in May, this is my first post. I had a radical hystercectomy on 26th June (kept ovaries). I'm recovering slowly and steadily, although I still need a catheter.
Yesterday I found out that 1 tiny (0.03mm) cancer cell was detected in a lymph. My consultant advised that I need chemo/radio - once I've recovered from surgery. I'm devastated. I wish they had taken my ovaries now.
I went into hospital fully prepared for surgery and was so glad- if anybody is awaiting surgery, i'd happily advise what to take in and what to have at home that made my life easier. Naturally, I want to make sure that i'm fully prepared for the next round of fighting. Any advice would be very welcome.
What shall I eat, buy, prepare to get me through radio/chem HRT etc. I'm not sure if I'm losing my hair yet. I feel like I'm not sure of anthing anymore.
