Any advice welcome.
I have hysterectomy booked for 19 Feb. I have stage 1a Cc diagnosis but they think my Lletz in Dec probably removed cancer but margin of safety of abnormal Cgin cells wasn't as good as they would like. I was also offered further deeper lletz and monitoring as alternative.
I opted for hysterectomy as having been told I had cc I just panicked and had a get it all out response.
Now am having second thoughts as hysterectomy is such abig procedure esp as they may have to do abdominal as I have had 2 c-sections.
I am active and only 37 so thought of early menopause (keeping ovaries but understand high chance they will fail in 5 yrs) and the recovery time for hysterectomy ( I thought a couple of weeks but can it be months?) putting me off.
I feel I maybe shouldn't leap to have hysterectomy and maybe have another lletz. Ifthey find more cc I am no worse off? As? Can still have hysterectomy. However if lletz clear I save myself a major op. But worried I am then putting myself at more risk.
I am worried about the emotional effects of the hysterectomy esp as I have had PND and minor depression episodes in my life. I have no cc symptoms so no other reason to have hysterectomy. Will I feel reassured if I have Lletz and then monitoring?
Any advice from the horses mouth??
