i was at my appointment today to discuss treatment for stage 1a2. The consultant says the majority of the cancer was removed during lletz but not clear margins, what's left is microscopic. He says treatment is radical hysterectomy.
ive said i don't want this done and I said about a trachelectomy instead,
so my issue is, do what my doctor wants to do, or ask for a trachelectomy, my issue with this is he said they don't do them in Scotland so I would need to travel to london to have this done, which I think this is a load of rubbish tbh!
I'm lying in my bed crying now, the doc is going to book the hysterectomy in for July but in the mean time I've to make this decision and have until my next appointment on the 20th.
im so upset and don't know what to do.
my reasons for not wanting the hysterectomy isn't for having children etc it's because I'm afraid of the changes that might happen to my body, I've read that it makes hips widen, rib cage to drop down onto hip bones, weight gain and many more.
Thanks for reading
