I haven't posted on here for a while, I had chemo/radiation for IIB Cervical Cancer at the beginning of this year and have been waiting on results ever since. In my scans 3 months post treatment, there was still a bit of tissue left that they weren't sure about so we waited another 3 months for the radiation to continue working. Unfortunately, at my 6 month scan they can still see some residual disease so after much debate they now want to perform a 'simple hysterectomy'. There is no guarantee that the residual tissue is cancerous but they don't think a biopsy would suffice so have decided (after an awful lot of backwards and forwards) that this is the way to go.
I just wondered if anyone else had had a hysterectomy (either simple or radical) post radiotherapy? They have told me that it's very high risk on my bladder due to the radiotherapy and while I'm not sure I could cope with any horrow stories (which I really hope no one has had), it would be amazing to hear from anyone who's had this done and how they got on.
Thanks so much
