Just seeing if anyone on here has some advice. I found out I had CIN 3 while I was pregnant with my baby boy this past year. I went for regular checkups and biopsies during pregnancy but my doctors told me they will hold off on treating until I gave birth. My water ended up breaking at 26 weeks for unknown reasons.
I gave birth to my precious boy at 26 weeks and 4 days. He is still in the nicu, but he is going to make it and will be coming home soon. I went back to my gyno oncologist and she said my CIN 3 was still there as well as a polyp. I did a cone biopsy a couple weeks ago and got the polyp removed as well as a leep of the surrounding area. It all came back with 1a1 with clear margins but since I have evidence of LVSI, my doctor wants to do a radical trachelectomy. Now I understand it is a fertility sparing treatment, but I have already had a pre term birth and I am terrified of going through this nicu journey again!
I found a clinical trial ongoing to test if a cone biopsy plus pelvic lymphadenectomy would be a more conservative option for early stage cervical cancer. I am leaning towards this option but I am concerned about the cancer spreading and getting worse in the future. Would this option be TOO conservative? I am wondering if anyone has any experience or just understand where I am coming from by hestitating to do the trachelectomy? I really want another child, and I am 31 years old who has been diagnosed with PCOS before. I was estactic that I was able to have my first child, and I am praying that I can squeeze in another before I eventually need a hysterectomy!
