Lovely to hear from you.
Yes, It was shock when they told me that Cgin was STILL in there! They told me I had clear margins but this is the problem with skip lesions, it is so hard to detect. The cells were hidden right in the middle of my cervix and would have been very hard to find so I am so glad that I made the decision to have the Hysterectomy.
I had a Total Laprascopic Hysterectomy (keyhole/removed cervix and uterus and kept fallopian tubes and ovaries so no need for HRT)I have been recovering well from the surgery and it really isn't bad as long as you have some help for the first few weeks with lifting..like laundry etc. If anything it is really boring as you mainly just potter around the house doing boring stuff and watching loads of TV and puzzles etc.. no driving for the first few weeks drove me a bit potty but I just kept telling myself it wasnt going to be forever and now I am almost back to normality after 6 weeks. Slow and steady is the key I guess.
Regarding your question about Lletz, I had spotting for the first week but everyone is different and I was told that it can also make periods a bit wonky. Do you have a Colposcopy nurse that you can phone regarding any concerns? If so..give them a ring and tell them how you are feeling. Also this site has an 'Ask the Expert' section and they have proper Consultants that will get back to you..
No need to thank me for posting hun, I'ts my pleasure and am priveleged to have met some lovely ladies on this rocky road! Including yourself..
I haven't posted on the newly diagnosed thread as I thought it was only for ladies that had a CC diagnosis..I could be wrong there but I will certainly check it out.
I have also found another fabulous site that is for ladies that have had Hysterectomies (not only due to cancer...also endometriosis, polyps, pro-lapse etc) and it helped me prepare mentally and physically for the Op.
I hope the anxiety eases for you as I know how it affected me on a daily basis. Give me a shout any time you need to chat/vent and I wish you well with whatever decision you make. At the end of the day, it is your body and your choice. I will keep following your updates in the meantime.
Take care and best wishes,
