    Procedure or Surgery (Abdominal hysterectomy): I just had my second baby when I was diagnosed. My husband and I wa ted to have a big family, so, we wanted 4 kids. It took us by surprise and like a bath of cold water when they tolds us that I have to have and abdominal hysterectomy and also explore lympsh ovaries, liver and colon. The surgery was going to last approximately 5 hours since it was exploratory. So no more babies for us. That was shocking and very difficult for us.

      I am so sorry for you diagnosis and experience but I will admit I am relieved to find someone who is was also a young mother when she was diagnosed. I too found out about my cervical cancer after the arrival of my second child and the loss of my fertility was so difficult and people often say "at least you have children" which I know is a blessing but that doesn't take away the sadness that you can never have more. How are you doing a year after your procedure, any advice for me - I am three weeks post my hysterectomy?

    Oh No (Relationship issues): I just delivered my second baby two months before I got diagnosed. I left Guatemala to go to Houston to get my surgery and treatment, in case of need. My oldest son was 2 years 10 months old and jealous. It was very difficult to get the news with my tow babies and knowing that I was going to be apart of them for months. Finally I went to Houston 4 times in 4 months since I decided to fly back and forth to be with my kids and husband.
