I was diagnosed with cervical cancer 17 months ago. Treated with lletz (x2) and a large cone biopsy. In the following months had a number of infections and further laprascopic surgery due to a twisted ovary, and to seperate adhesions. I'm left with ongoing issues with cervical stenosis and adhesion pain. Having been desperate to avoid a hysterectomy, I am now wondering if this would actually finally relieve me of the pretty much constant pain and problems.
I have also had dilation and a stent inserted for a few weeks, but the stenosis recurred.
Consultant is not so keen now, saying that it would likely not be so straightforward due to adhesions. It is also likely that the surgery would lead to more adhesions, and therefore possibly not solve the problem.
I really dont know if I should be pushing for this, but also not sure how much longer I can put up with the constant pain and menstrual flooding for.
So, I'm looking for anyone who has had similar issues. Did you have a hysterectomy and did it put an end to the problems? I know that there are barrier products that can be used during surgery to prevent adhesions forming, has anyone had any experience of surgery using these? Are they used by the NHS? I am due to see my consultant again in a couple of months, and will of course ask him these questions, but it is always useful to go armed with information!
Really grateful for any advice.
Thank you x
