    Default Surgery a few weeks PP

    Feel free to move mods.

    I have a slight dilemma.
    I was supposed to have an endo excision and LLETZ procedure done earlier this year (CIN3) so we stopped TTC and of course fell pregnant.

    The hospital has just contacted me and will book me in for end of Dec/start of Jan. But I'm due to have baby Nov 26th and although I'm hoping for a VBAC, it might not be successful.

    Specialist has already said they would open my last c-section scar because the endo is on my bowel. But would they reopen a new one if it's only been 4-6 weeks?
    Also worrying about staying in hospital overnight away from my newborn and if surgery will effect breastfeeding.

    If I say no I go on another 6 month waiting list and it will already be a year in Jan. My OB is away for the next 3 weeks so I have to see a stand in so can't ask about it.

    What should I do?

    Ah that seems like a tricky one.
    If you do have the surgery usually a lot of hospitals accommodate for bub to stay also.
    IMO I would wait another 6 months to recover from birth, breastfeeding and bonding with your bub. If they are cutting c/s scar it might take a further 6 weeks to recover putting a lot of pressure on your body.

    i would talk to the stand in and see what they would do, if anything just go through all the possibilites so you are prepaired. then make anotber ap when your reg ob gets in and discuss it further with him.
    as for the breast feeding. they will allow you to have a family room so bub can sleep with you and you can bf. persist in having bub stay with you, they will make room. you will need help after surgery so ask if your dp or someone can staay with you also so they can help you out with settling bub.

    Is your OB doing the surgery? Don't flame me, but why don't you have a CS and they can do the surgery at the same time?

    +1 You said you want a VBAC but if you have to go through caesarean like surgery a month later (as well as a potential repeat c/s) make things easier recovery wise?

    Also isn't CIN3 cervical cancer or the beginnings of cervical cancer? I'd be wanting that the hell out of me as soon as possible if it was me....

    OB won't be doing the surgery unfortunately.
    If it was possible to do that I would but it would mean going to another hospital 45 minutes away and I wouldn't get my OB who I'm very comfortable with. I live rurally so not a lot of medical facilities.
    CIN3 is severe and if left untreated can progress into cervical cancer.

    I'm thinking of seeing if the endo excision can wait, I have had a lot of issues with it in the past but I've put up with it for this long and atleast I can be in and out within the same day if it's just a LLETZ procedure.
