Hi, I just got the news that I have microinvasive cervical cancer and I needed somewhere to vent and am seeking some advice. I am 21 years old and I had an abnormal pap this December. I had a colposcopy which was followed by a LEEP. The LEEP tissue showed the cancerous cells so I am scheduled for another procedure in February. I don't know much about anything yet, my cancer has not been staged. I have not had children yet and wanted to conceive in the future, so that is why the doctors want to try this procedure instead of a historectomy. I am so stunned right now that I can't think clearly. I want to know more about this, but I don't even know what to ask or where to begin. Can anyone help me get started... are there any questions I should ask right away? Thanks much, any help is appreciated.
