Have Frequent Bleeding, Had Trachelectomy For Cervical Cancer, Biopsy Done. Delivered, Breast Feeding. Cancer?

Hello. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2010 (stage 1B). I had a radical trachelectomy, and all my biopsies since have been clear. I was lucky enough to have no troubles conceiving after the surgery, and had my daughter in March 2012. I am still breastfeeding. My period returned at the start of February 2013, and I had another period at the start of March, but have been bleeding every week or two since then. My next cancercare appt is not scheduled until July, but I am concerned that the frequent periods of bleeding I am having could be indicative of a return of the cancer? Or is it normal for my period to be much more frequent after breastfeeding?

Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi,
What was the report of the pelvic lymph nodes? Stage IB has got two subtypes IB1 and IB2 . Manage protocol differs in these two subtypes. More definite information is needed. Anyway, what are the follow up protocol your doctors have advised? Bleeding in a treated case of cervical cancer should always be carefully evaluated. Clinical examination is mandatory and PAP smear is necessary. You should also mention the HPV status. Consult your oncologist.
