Re: Uterine Cancer Stage I
Sweetheart do you want children? If you really don't, the. get rid of it all. If you do then it possibly has to be now if the docs agree it will be OK. Cancer is unforgiving and won't wait and you have a lot of life to live. A hard decision I know. I have it too but have had my kids so it is no contest but I think at your age I would still do the same. Do you have a partner? What is his view? Here in the UK they would definitely be recommending hysterectomy although I suppose they may consider other options. I have no need to discuss them but would radiation damage your ovaries or could you have some eggs stored first? Radiation would not damage your womb so the you could have IVF. If you store eggs and have a hysterectomy you may be able to find a suggogate. Almost impossible to do that here but I understand easier ethically in the States than the UK but costly? Good luck whatever you decide to do.
