So my surgery day is approaching fast and I go in tomorrow morning.. Last week at the preop the consultant announced that they decided to do a cone instead of trachelectomy as planned as my tumour is shallow and small volume (I'm staged at 1b1 though). I've been trying to search the forum for the experiences but it seems very few of us get just the cone with lymph nodes removed and I wonder if anyone can share your experiences of what to expect after surgery-realistic recovery times, how long the surgery takes etc.. I've never been under general anaestethic and am very nervous about all of this.. And of course the wait for the results after is not anything I look forward to either.. I was told I might only need to stay 1 night at the hospital and hope that they are right, would much rather recover at home.. That's it really, just looking for some reassurance... I will be back to report my own experience when I feel strong enough:)))
Take care everyone!
