I had a radical trachelectomy and lymph node removal in April 2014 and since then have had smear tests every 3 months. I had another MRI in January and everything came back clear so I am done with them now. I am now going for smears every 4 months for the next year and if everything stays well will go to 6 monthly then yearly unitl I get to 5 years cancer free and then it will go back to every 3 years. During my appointments the doctor prods about on my tummy then does an internal check and smear test.
From reading other posts on this forum, it seems to be a bit of a postcode lottery as to what treatment/after care you get.
