I have been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma and am trying to decide between a radical hysterectomy and radical trachelectomy. My onco/gyn is not as hip to the trachelectomy becuase of the nature of glandular cell cervical cancer, and there's no guarantee that the place he chooses to cut the cervix would leave no cancer behind. Has anyone had this decision to make? Specifically, I'm looking for women with adenocarcinomas in early stage (1A2) that had one surgery versus another and WHY. My hubby and I are not ready for kids, although I'm 31, but I don't think want to let go of the option, no matter how slim. Any advice would be great!!!
