Hi everyone, hope we are all well :))
Yesterday I seen my surgeon, chemotherapy has been very successful with the tumour (i hate that word) now below two cms so radical hysterectomy booked for Monday the 17th. Absolutely delighted by the response to chemotherapy and surgery was what I wanted so all good on that front.
My questions are about the surgery and I was told there would be an indwelling catheter left in for a week to ten days after I go home.
Question 1 - on average how long were you in the hospital following the surgery? How was the pain is it manageable?
The catheter scares me a lot as I've never had one and it's just one of those things I've always had a bit of a phobia of. Is it painful having it removed??
All these concerns aside just delighted this is coming to an end and surgeon said if margins are clear and nodes are clear! I'm "clear" woo hoo!!! :))
Don't know where I would of been without all of you on here for the past 4 months, more people should be made aware of the site at diagnosis.
