Haven’t been on here for a while and sorry to have to come back to ask people for advice.
After getting my all clear in March 2011 and having a hysterectomy cancelled as a result, the only thing I have had done is monitoring. Everything was going along nicely until about three months ago when a different consulatant to my usual one gave my a colp.
To cut a long story short, I have had clear smears, colps and MRIs since. But now I have been given the choice of three forms of treatment.
- Lymph node sampling (This was never offered to me before despite having LVSI)
- Lymph node sampling and simple hysterectomy
Now, making this decission about my own body without any medical training is tough. I can deal with the hysterectomy, but it’s the side effects of lymph node removal and or the hysterectomy that I am concerned about.
So, my question is, what experience do you guys have of lymph node sampling, what problems did you experience and how have they been manged?
Hugs to all,
