I haven't been on here for over a week as it's all been a bit of a whirlwind since my appointment with the consultant!
As this was my first appointment since diagnosis, as you can imagine I had loads of questions, but forgot to ask most of them, as you do! I found out my stage is 1B1, with a tumour about the size of a grape (which sounds massive to me!!) and I have adenocarcinoma cc, but also with squamas cells. The consultant said the adenocarcinoma cells develop in the cervical canal, so mine is quite high up, which is why when I had my LLETZ the doctor said it didn't look like I cancer - it was hiding too high up.
Anyway, to get to the point, I have a radical trachelectomy booked for Thursday, I'm going into hospital tomorrow - although I'm not sure why as I've already had my pre op? But, got to do as we're told!! They're doing it abdominally, which I queried and they said they don't do keyhole from my hospital, so I could request to go to a different one but that would be a lot of hassle and I would have a longer wait for the procedure.
My CNS told me I should have received a leaflet about post op recovery, but I haven't. Has anyone else on here had this procedure done abdominally? What's the recovery time like?
Thanks ladies :) xx
