Have been lurking for a while now and thought it was time to post.
I was diagnosed on 13th Jan with CC and on 21st Jan told it was stage 1b1. I am booked in for a Radical hysterectomy, with ovaries removed on 9th Feb and was just wondering if anyone who has been through it could give me some hints and tips of what to expect and what i can do before and after surgery to minimise the risk of complications, if there is anything i should take in with me and just the general insider information.
Whilst i have been telling people about my diagnosis, I have been carrying on as normal, I have 2 young children and work full time so with the school runs and work I have not had much time to think about things. My husband and I have said we are not thinking about the future or the kids, we are just taking each step at a time. Hoping i am dealing with it and not in denial or anything but how do you know?
Would love to hear from others in this situation.
