Hi I am new here but having been diagnosed with cervical cancer earlier this year I have found this site to be a godsend!
I was diagnosed with Stage 1b1 adenicarcinoma and had radical trachelectony and lymph node removal in one laporoscopic operation in February.
everything has has been ok since and I have been given the ok which is obviously amazing however I am still experiencing some side effects of the op and haven't been given any advice!
the first issue is weight gain. I have put on over a stone since the operation and I know that in the grand scheme of life it isn't that important but it is really starting to get me down and I feel like my stomach is absolutely massive and occasionally just blows up for no reason!
anyone one else experienced a trachelectomy and can give me any advice on how to cope afterwards?
i am back to work full time but in a very sedentary job with long hours so always very tired and find it hard to find time to execise but I eat a healthy diet
any help would be very much appreciated as I have nobody else I can discuss this with!
