Hello
The coil is not going to kill the cancer cells
Why was the hysterectomy cancelled?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am overweight and have lymphodemea in my legs they had trouble getting blood from my veins and were bothered about my breathing when i was laid flat also they said they would put breathing tube in while i was awake as my mouth was on the small side,it made me nervous and my blood pressure went up.

Do you know what stage your cancer is?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I had a polyps removed in january after bleeding then the resaults of the biopsy gave them cause for concern and they wanted to carry out the hysterectomy that week. they say the lining of my womb is very thick i am attending the gynecology oncolgy clinic..

OK
The coil is not going to stop the cancer.
If it is confined to the uterus, taking out the uterus can stop the cancer.

Talk to your doctors about this...ask them the stage of the cancer.
