I can see there haven't been any posts in this part of the forum for a while and it's made me a little reluctant to post but I'm hoping there'll be someone out there with a similar experience. I was diagnosed with CC mid Feb this year (adenocarcinoma, 1b1) and had a radical hysterectomy plus lymph node removal on 31st March. I was offered fertility preservation (harvesting and freezing eggs) but as there was no guarantee I would still be able to have surgery immediately afterwards (COVID 19) I decided to go ahead with surgery and had ovarian transposition at the same time.
I've been given the all clear, as the histology showed now sign of residual disease - which I'm obviously really glad about.
What I'm struggling with is finding anyone who has had a similar experience. I have no children, came out of a long term relationship 2 years ago (not my decision) with someone I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with and have a family with. I'm currently single and would have liked to have had my own children (to know what it feels like to have a child grow inside you). I have no idea how I'll broach this subject with any future dates etc or when I'll even get back to dating. Needless to say the operation and everything around it has left me feeling far from desirable.
I'm not looking for someone in the exact same position, just someone who didn't get to have children pre treatment, really wanted to and is also struggling with all the implications. Every post I come across involves people who have already had a child / children and I'm struggling to relate.
Thanks in advance.
