Hi Nattyhart:

Well good for you to be thinking about sex right now! Tell lyour consultant that you are a hot, vibrant woman and as such your vagina will never be so mundane as a taco.  A Hot Pocket maybe, but never a taco.  (Do we have Hot Pockets in the UK? If not, they're like Pop Tarts or toaster pastries) 

I never got beyond O Level Biology but I have always envisaged my vagina, and I must admit that has not been often, as the little finger of a very very expensive pair of gloves.  After my hysterectomy I consider the end of the glove finger to have been stitched close, beautifully, neatly and delicately. As such, any damn lucky finger that finds itself in my glove will be totally at ease! 

Seriously though, I'm sure there are plenty of hot-blooded women on here who will jump in to reassure you that all will be well.  Taco indeed.

As for giving birth, I too had c-sections. My doc said she'd remove things through the vagina because it is easier.  Easier is good.  If stuff has to come out through the incision site the site sometimes has to be made bigger. Not so good.

Nobody plans to be where we are. Let's you and I plan to be looking back on this very very soon.

Take care.

24 March 16  Annual smears up to date. First abnormal pap.

10 May 16  CT Scan and XRay clear - yay!

23 May 16 Simple hysterectomy, excluding ovaries

26 May 16 Biopsy of cervix revealed a skip lesion/further tumour ( 2mm x 6mm) higher up. Uterus clear. Still classed as 1a1 so treatment will be 6 monthly check ups.

I'm in the USA too. A hot pocket sounds better- haha! I just wonder... without glands... a cervix... IF I ever got a boyfriend, would it be weird? I guess it's good I'm not thinking about cancer. just the awful image/fear of my vagina and sex! sigh. normal I hope.

Wierd for you or him? Can't answer either of those questions but I know someone on here probably can. There's a site in the US - hystersister - that deals with all questions regarding hysterectomies.  There may be some stuff on there.

It'll work out.  So many women have hysterectomies for so many reasons and they can't all be not having sex!

weird for both... I guess. I'm only 36. I saw hystercysters... I didn't know it was a US site, I just thought maybe I "fit" in better here.

It'll be OK.  A bottle of wine and you'll be off to the races.

I like this site too. Only dropped by the other one by chance.  I like the women on here plus it's all about CC which is where I need support. When's your cone biopsy?

Monday. I just had a bunch of pokes/bloodwork-labs for it. They told me the results take about a week? And then the following week if all goes well, I'll schedule the "simple" vaginal hysterectomy. xxx-fingers for contained cancer... I believe called clear margins?

Fingers crossed for you! I had a simple laproscopic robotic hysterectomy so if you end up having the same let me know if you have questions.
