Greetings. I am looking for people who have either gone through or are going through the process of being diagnosed with Cervical Cancer.
I am relatively young, in my 40's, in good health and physically active. I have had no symptoms of any sort. I received this diagnosis after having an irregular pap smear, followed by another test by my gynecologist.
I was then referred to a gynecological oncologist who did a Cone Biopsy Procedure which I am still recovering from. This test showed that there were cancer cells as well as pre-cancer cells, and it has been recommended for me to have a Vaginal Hysterectomy, leaving the ovaries in tact so that I wont have menopausal symptoms. I am looking for people who are either going through this or have gone through the same situation; I think it well help me emotionally deal with the situation better.
If anyone is out there, I would appreciate your input!
Thanks for listening.
