Spoke to the specialist nurse again yesterday and she confirmed I am now cancer free after the cone biopsy! :)
Just wanted to share my good news and also wanted to ask anyone has had a similar procedure if they know what the chances are of the cancer coming back?
I know this sounds pretty morbid after having such good news, but I'm just concerned as the recommended treatment for early stage CC is a radical hysterectomy and my consultant wouldn't let me have one because I am 30 years old and haven't had children yet. I assume the reason a hysterectomy is recommended is because there is a good chance the cancer will come back?
So now although I feel happy with the results of the cone biopsy, I feel like I will most likely get the cancer back and my consultant's only bought me some time to have children, before it comes back again!
And it doesn't help that CIN is still present, and they don't want to do anything further until I have a colposcopy in 3 months time, because they want to wait and see if the CIN goes away on its own or if it gets worse!
