I realise my first post about awaiting a radical trachelectomy on the 4th Feb, was a 'bit' long winded. Sorry about that- I think I got on a bit of a roll and found it therapeutic writing it down!
As much as I'd love to hear from anyone who's had a trachelectomy, I realise there are probably more people who've had these pesky pelvic lymph nodes out.
This will be the 3rd op where they've threatened to take them, so hopefully they'll go. But I'm a bit anxious about the repercussions.
I've had a chat with my CSN but I'd like to know how people have found their recovery. And wearing stockings for 6 months! I can imagine that'll be fun in the summer. But if that's the worst thing I have to put up with then I'll take it. Has anyone found better alternatives to the ones provided by the NHS- or shall I just anticipate living in trousers that'll cover them and loooooong dresses?
Any advice would be great, also if any one has got any comments about my other post I'd love to chat :)
