Ladies, I need your input. I recently had a radical hysterectomy. It was supposed to be cervix and uterus only but they found a malignant tumor in the uterus so they removed everything...uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries and lymph nodes. Thankfully, my pathology results came back and the cancer was contained within the uterus itself and the chance of it returning is only 2-3% in the next 5 years. While I am grateful for such a good prognosis, I am very confused. I have been thrown into surgical menopause and I have no idea what lays ahead. Because the type of cancer I had is caused by an overproduction of estrogen HRT is not an option right now. I am afraid that my sex drive is going to plunge off the face of the planet and I don't want it to. Bottom line, is there any woman here on LPSG that has experienced any of this? Is there any advice/information/etc that you can offer? Knowing I had cancer and the removal of my organs has turned my life upside down and I'm trying to cope the best I can, which is usually through information. I know everyones experience is different but any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.
