First of all I’d like to say how much of a great support this page has been to me over the last few weeks. I am newly diagnosed and found myself looking on here daily as seeing such positivity spurred me on so much!
I have a question which I’m not even sure anybody would be able to answer as it was a decision made by my consultant but wondered if anybody had been through a similar experience.
I have been staged at 1b1 and my consultant has booked me for a hysterectomy, but leaving my ovaries. I am 32 years old, in a stable relationship and we don’t have any children yet. My main concern is obviously my fertility. My consultant is aware of my fertility concerns yet didn’t offer me a trach op even though I know this is possible at my stage. He just said surrogacy would be my only option. I was a little dazed in my meeting as it was all a bit much to take in as I’d been dreading it all week so didn’t ask many questions. I know in light of everything I am very grateful that I am at an early stage and can avoid rad/chemo and just hopefully need surgery, but I can’t stop thinking that I will never carry my own child. Surrogacy is at least an option and I’m grateful for that, but I wasn’t offered any pre op precautions like freezing my eggs which I know many girls have done. I just don’t know why he didn’t consider a trach due to my situation or at least give me the option? I’ve had a CT scan and MRI and he didn’t even mention those results so I’m assuming they were clear!!
I know I should just call them and ask these questions but just wondered if anybody here had any advice/experience with this?
Thank you xx
