I am in a difficult place at the moment and unsure what to do. I am hoping there is someone in this forum who has has a same or similar experience.
I was diagnosed with CC in 2007 and underwent a trachelectomy followed by 6 weeks of chemo-radio. I am so grateful that I've had no recurrence and currently 12 years on post diagnosis.
Unfortunately, I now have progressively growing fibroids (almost certainly being fed by HRT) which are starting to cause me symptoms. I've had a number of investigation and met with two different consultants. One of the options being put forward is surgery, either a myomectomy or possibly a hysterectomy. I have been told that, whilst not impossible, any surgery to the pelvis following radiotherapy can be more difficult and complex. I am also worried about tissue healing and of course 'something going wrong' during surgery.
I know its a bit of a long shot, but has anyone on here had any type of pelvic surgery post radiotherapy? If, yes I would really like to connect with you/hear your experience. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
Stage 1b cc - July 2007.Trachelectomy July 2007 followed by chemo-radio for node involvement. All treatment completed September 2007. All good so far.
