Hello new friends,
So, I just got back from my first appointment with the Oncologist today.
It looks as if I am a Stage IA2, but she is not for sure. I am ordered to have a MRI and CT scan this week. She is hopeful that I will be a candidate for the trachelecotmy surgery where they remove the cervix only and keep the uterus intact, so I will possibly be able to bear children in the future. I am lucky as there is a doctor in this office that performs this surgery.
Does anybody have experience or know somebody who has had a trachelectomy??? The research I have read is not too promising. The fertility rate is only about 40% and then there is a much higher chance of miscarriages even in the second trimester. Yikes!
Also does anybody have any experience with using a surrogate mom? I have one baby girl, Allie 10 months, but I would really love to have another child! I feel kind of "jipped" because I did have Pap smears every year. I did everything you're supposed to do, so I am still left asking Why? If only they would have had Gardisil ten years ago....
Please keep me in your prayers.
