I also had a trachelectomy in July 2012 but mine was a radical trach with lymph node dissection also. I may not have the answers to all your questions but just know you are not alone!!!

thanks very much for your answer
are you trying to get pregnant/
did you have a normal pap since your trach?

Report post

Yes, I had a normal PAP in November and my next one is at the end of this month. They will also do a PET/CT scan at this appointment to make sure there is no cancer. If all that is clear then I'll be able to start trying to get pregnant, although I don't plan on trying until the summer since I'm getting married in May. You may want to change this post to "shared with members" instead of public so you get more responses. If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
