    How to live and eat healthy after cone biopsy

    I had cone biopsy done last Thursday and am still waiting for the result. Then last night had a VERY BAD dream that I got unclear [email protected]#$% I guess it is because I am too nervous during the day. I am going to call my gyn dr tomorrow to find out. Anyway, before that I just want a little discussion regarding the preventitive method in the future.

    For me, I am starting to take ReishiMax and Green tea extract of Pharmanex, they were supposed to boost immune system and help healthy cell grow. Also I am taking VitaminC everyday. I heard that Folic Acid is very important in preventing cervical cancer, grains, wheat are the best source. I am having hot oatmeal with honey every morning now but I've been on low carb diet for at least 2 years, so I am thinking I should take supplement pills to increase it. Also I checked on internet, green veggis, mushroom, asparagues etc all are good at preventing cancer, I will try to have at least one kind each day.

    Sleep is also important, 11pm-2am is the best time for body recovery. I believe regular work-out is also helpful, but for me, still have to wait the cervix to heal.

    Ladies, any other suggestions? Welcome to share your thoughts.

    OMG, I had the WORST nightmares while waiting for my surgery. During the day, it's easier I think because I just kept repeating the statistics to myself and rationally, I know I am going to be okay. But I kept waking up in complete panic attacks! I had to ask my doctor for something to help me sleep. I thought I was over it, but I had another one last night. The nightmares especially **** me off because you know I'm trying to be healthy and get my rest!

    My whole thing about keeping yourself healthy is this: is doesn't matter exactly what you do. Every bit helps. Your plan sounds excellent. And it's not like you have to be perfect, right? For about 90% of women who had AIS and clear margins, AIS will never recur. You are already likely to not recur, you are just giving yourself an extra boost into the 90%. That shouldn't be that hard to do.

    I know you don't have your results yet, but I am so optimistic for you. Please let me know when you hear the news.

    I agree with Lily, every little bit helps. I've read some research that folic acid supports a healthy cervix. Other than that, exercise, don't smoke, eat healthy, reduce or eliminate alcohol, sleep well, reduce stress.
