I've recently been diagnosed with early stages cervical cancer. I'm due to have a Radical Hysterectomy and pelvic lymph node removal in 2 weeks time.
I would like to hear your own experiences of the surgery and recovery period or any advice anyone may have? I appreciate everyone has a different experience with surgery but any advice would be appreciated.
I had a c-section 6 years ago which is really the only thing I could compare it to in regards to having to rest afterwards, no heavy lifting etc.
Thanks in advance.
