Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. I can understand the pain and agony which you are going through.
You see if thereâs a persistence of the abnormal/cancerous cells, thereâs always a risk of spread.
The cancerous cells can persist inspite of undergoing hysterectomy. Hence, you might need further therapies which can be a little more extensive surgery or radiation therapy. Hence, Iâll suggest you not to ignore this.
Although, it will spoil your holiday mood but I am sure you understand that thereâs nothing more precious in oneâs life than health.
Hence, you should seek the consultation of an oncologist/gynecologist for further treatment. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
