    Had some awful news today. We got told today that my mum has womb cancer and has to have a full hysterectomy. My mum is very overweight and this is really frightening me. She has other health issues and I guess I am just freaking out. Anyone know of anyone who's had one I'm frightened. I know it's ironic I'm posting this in here but u ladies are amazing support. Xxxx

    Sorry to hear this :-( I have worked on gynae surgical wards for several years now and hysterectomies aren't as scary as they used to be. They are big ops but safe compared to many others and she will be kept a close eye on if she has other health problem. I know it is hard not to worry but I'm sure she will be fine xx

    I'm really sorry to hear this, do you know what stage the cancer is? If they've caught it early the hysterectomy will get rid of it & they will probably give her some sort of chemo as a precaution.

    My MIL had ovarian cancer that had spread to her lymph nodes 2 years ago and had a full hysterectomy and 2 rounds of chemo. She's now been clear for a year although she did have to have further surgery as she developed a hernia which is common with hysterectomys. She still has to have check ups to make sure the cancers not back but other than that's she's ok.

    I know it can be a tough and scary time but give her loads of support & make sure someone goes with her to the appointments to make notes as they will give her info that she will forget.
    Any questions write those down too and go through each one with the doc, as you will forget them when you go if you don't.

    I'm here if you have any questions that I can help with, otherwise try not to stress & remember to look after yourself too.
    Take care x

    Belle I am so sorry to hear this. I have, and don't know anyone that has had, experience of womb cancer.

    My mums BFF had breast cancer and my uncle had throat cancer. It is a horrendous disease but it can be beaten.

    Please strong hun but don't forget to look after yourself and your LO you are growing too. You and mum need to be there for each other.

    Do you have a big family? Sisters/brothers?

    xxxx

    No we are a very small family. I have good friends though. I think I'm frightened that she has to go through the operation. They have said once the op is done as its grade 1 it's not spread and hopefully won't need chemo. But because my mum is a large lady I am worried about the op. xxxx
