I’ve recently been diagnosed with 1B1 cervical cancer.
I had a smear back in April which came back with high grade CGIN
A coloposcopy and LLETZ in June
First saw surgical oncologist last week.
Confirmed this week as 1B1 adenocarcinoma
I’m 36 and I’ve never had children, so looking at a trachelectomy as an option dependent on the result of the MRI which I had this morning. I’m seeing the surgeon again tomorrow after she’s met with the MDT and hopefully will be able to determine then which surgery I can have.
I’ve just been a ball of worry, I’m not sleeping great, and currently I’m just feeling really guilty for feeling bad when I know other people have it worse.
We had really hoped to try for a child soon, and this has thrown everything out of whack. The idea of surgery is really scaring me (I was in hospital a fair bit as a child so I have quite an aversion to them now).
