Since you had surgery for cervical cancer, cervical stenosis has occurred. In cervical stenosis, the passageway through the cervix (from the vagina to the main body of the uterus) is narrow or completely closed. In that case, cervix dilatation using dilators needs to be done.
To try to keep the cervix open, doctors may place a tube (cervical stent) in the cervix for 4 to 6 weeks.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
To the poster, stenosis is a narrowing of the structure. The question is why. Most likely it is scar tissue. Sounds like the opening procedure can be done and I would talk to your doctor about this. good luck to you.
