Hi Debbie. I just saw your posting and wanted to write you. I was diagnosed in May 2007 of adenocarcinoma stage 1b as well. My doctor highly recommended a radical hysterectomy including the ovaries because he said he has seen many cases where it came back in the ovaries. I was done as well having kids and figured I would rather not risk it coming back. I have had minimal menopause issues and I am only 36. All my checks have been clean as well since my surgery over a year ago. Good luck!
