Large Loop Diathermy

Hi there..

I've had a large loop diathermy as I had pre-cancerous cells (CIN3) and my Specialist has recommended a Hysterectomy. Does this mean I could be at risk from other types of cancer or will the op remove any future risks?

The operation would remove the risks of cancer of the cervix and uterus, but not cancer of the ovaries if they are left behind.
