I first found out I had stage 3 cervical cancer just over 3 years ago.
It was scary and felt very unfair. Everyone needs to be educated about HPV. Especially the men.. ( they have no idea, or I think they'd happily wrap it more often)
I went through hell but had the support of my beautiful bf and family. I came out knowing I'd be ok but chose to have surgery for removal of cervix and lymph nodes. I didn't want treatment as it kills your eggs and I wanted to have another baby with my partner.
I had my first montly pap and all clear. Time flew by and it's now been 3 yrs and we finally have our little miracle baby even though I have no cervix and just stenosis below my uterus... what a blessing in it's own.
I have just been diagnosed again, not sure what stage as of yet. But I am petrified.
Anyone else had a reoccurance after the procedure??
I'm so frightened I may not be so lucky this time round. I have many symptoms... back aches near my kidneys, leg pain, abdo cramping pelvic discomfort and unusual periods/discharge ( not that I really get them anymore due to stenosis )
Anyone else have a similar story ? I am feeling very lost and don't want to scare my family again.
Thanks in advance
