Hi ladies, I hope you are all as well as can be expected in these circumstances. I'm looking for a bit of advice please. Has anyone here had a hysterectomy as a preventative measure I.e to prevent pre malignant change rather than a cancer diagnosis where there was no choice? The reason I ask is that after having very very early stage 1a 2 years ago my recent smear has shown severe changes and as there was nothing to see of concern during the colposcopy, they are discussing me at a MDT meeting tomorrow. When I last spoke to them on the phone they asked if my family was complete and said that as I've already had 2 LLETZ that a vaginal hysterectomy may be an option for me. Obviously I am keen to avoid major surgery if I can but then on the other hand it would stop all this constant worry and fear and having to plan my future holidays etc around the time I have checkups etc. I honestly thought that after the LLETZ 2 years ago that that would be it for me so I'm shocked and extremely worried to find myself in this situation again and my biggest fear is that this keeps reoccuring. Has anyone else had this happen to theM? I know when they phone me after the meeting tomorrow that they will ask again if my family is complete and that the option of a hysterectomy may well become very real. I am lucky to have a family and am pretty certin my family is complete but at 34 years old I'm not sure I'm ready to make such a permanent decision.
any advice please would be great.
