I have recently been diagnosed with CC stage 1b1. I previously had loop treatment which removed half of the tumour, however I need surgery to remove the rest. I am really scared about having the surgery and are looking for guidance and advice from other woman who have had the surgery. I recently just got married was planning on starting a family, it has been suggested I have a trachellectomy due to my age and fertility chances. Can anyone give me more information on recovery time? and an insight into how I may feel, I know we everyone is different. Before I knew MRI results I was considering a hysterectomy, now I am thinking trachellectomy. Hope to hear from someone soon.
