Just a quick one to say my results from cone biopsy came back clear. It's a huge relief and a massive weight off my shoulders.
Unfortunately though I was also told the MDT are now quite concerned about my ability to have children at all because of the amount of my cervix that has been removed (I think about 4cm total from lletz and cone biopsy). I also had scar tissue from lletz but figured that was normal, Google tells me it's not and can stop sperm from getting through, ie not possible to get pregnant. Would scar tissue have been removed in cone biopsy? Don't really understand. I asked at pretty much every appointment if they could tell me what effect this would have on my ability to have children. The first time I was told "well you can't have kids if you're dead". I didn't see her again and my other consultant just kept brushing it off as nothing to worry about so I'm obviously a bit taken aback. The other thing that's slightly bothering me is the cone biopsy sample had no abnormal cells or cancer at all meaning I could have got away with not having it. I don't regret having it because it was a no brainer with the info I had at the time but if they had informed me that it could result in me not being able to have children at all I would have considered watch a wait. I don't mean to come across insensitive. I'm thrilled the cancer is gone I just feel like a whole other bombshell has been dropped that I wasn't prepared for. Doesn't help that my mums telling the whole world either, talk about pressure. Anyway, they're gonna measure what's left of my cervix in 6 months to see what the deal is. I feel I dealt with the cancer very well, maybe I was a bit naive, but I'm struggling with this, I'm 25 with no children and desperately want a family. Sorry for having a bit of a rant, all sorts of emotions rushing through me at the moment. Thanks everyone for your support through all this.
Will try and keep in touch till my next appointment and my love goes out to everyone still fighting this. Xxx
