After what has been the longest month of my life I’ve finally been told what treatment I’m going to be having. Radiotherapy with a bit of chemo. Im devastated as I was praying for the Trachelectomy. I went to see my consultant yesterday and he explained that the cancer is confined to the cervix & my lymph nodes are clear but when he did the EUA he took some biopsys and these come back with my worst fear, aggressive cancer. Therefore he couldn’t perform the surgery as he and the team at the MDT meeting said the cancer could have already spoutthee these tiny cancer cells aren’t visible to the eye nor are they visable under microscope. I’m so gutted as I wanted to try for a baby at the end of the year. I already have an 18 month old daughter but I’m only 23 and wanted more. i know I’m very lucky as everyone keeps saying but I feel like I’ve been robbed. However because I already have a child apparently they won’t freeze my eggs and Id have to go private. I don’t know where to begin, how much does this cost? What’s the process? It’s all a nightmare I’m totally numb with it all.
I was also wondering what radiotherapy is going to be like? What should I expect etc. My consultant told me to expect traaeatment mon to frI for 4 weeks!
any advice would be great.
