Pelvic adhesions & Cervical stenosis

Hi all, 

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer 17 months ago. Treated with lletz (x2) and a large cone biopsy. In the following months had a number of infections and further laprascopic surgery due to a twisted ovary, and to seperate adhesions. I'm left with ongoing issues with cervical stenosis and adhesion pain. Having been desperate to avoid a hysterectomy, I am now wondering if this would actually finally relieve me of the pretty much constant pain and problems. 

 I have also had dilation and a stent inserted for a few weeks, but the stenosis recurred.

Consultant is not so keen now, saying that it would likely not be so straightforward due to adhesions. It is also  likely that the surgery would lead to more adhesions, and therefore possibly not solve the problem. 

I really dont know if I should be pushing for this, but also not sure how much longer I can put up with the constant pain and menstrual flooding for. 

 So, I'm looking for anyone who has had similar issues. Did you have a hysterectomy and did it put an end to the problems? I know that there are barrier products that can be used during surgery to prevent adhesions forming, has anyone had any experience of surgery using these? Are they used by the NHS? I am due to see my consultant again in a couple of months, and will of course ask him these questions, but it is always useful to go armed with information!

Really grateful for any advice. 


Thank you x



Sorry I have no experience of this. Can you ask for a second opinion? Do you have a specialist nurse. She will have experience in this area and be able to advise you on the options. I think I would be asking for more information.

Good luck

Thank you, pkjpi2013, for you reply. I'm guessing by the number of views and replies, tthere is not much experience of this on here :(. I will be asking lots of questions next time I go, but just get the feeling my consultant just thinks I should 'get on with it'. Contacting my nurse is a good idea, I will do this before waiting for my next appointment I think. 

Good luck with your scan and results in June. 

Hi Doodles,  

I read your post and am now in exactly the same position. Reoccurring stenosis, constant discharge, fluid collection in my womb. I would like to know how you have got on since 2014...? 

Thanks in advance
