A woman who ignored doctors” advice has beaten cancer and saved her fertility just in time for new year.

Naomi Orme, 34, feared the worst when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer just five months ago.

Doctors told her that her only chance of survival was to have a hysterectomy – something that would ruin her chances of conceiving a child.

Devastated Naomi was desperate to keep her fertility and began researching other options online.

Luckily she found that she could ask for a second opinion and there was another operation she could have that would not destroy her eggs.

Naomi underwent a trachelectomy – which removes the uterine cervix without damaging fertility – and now she”s cancer free and looking forward to 2015.

She documented her entire cancer journey through her blog and hopes that by sharing her story other women will seek a second opinion.

The air hostess, said: "I am over the moon to be cancer free in time for the New Year.

"I still don”t believe I”ve actually managed to beat cancer, I feel like I”m walking on air.

"Since my diagnosis in July, I have had to battle with doctors to get the right treatment plan.

"If I wasn”t so persistent about getting a second opinion, I would be infertile now.

"Beating cancer was always my main goal but I wanted children in the future and I knew deep down there was a way to keep my dream alive."

Noami, who has never missed a regular smear test, first noticed something was wrong when she began bleeding after sex.

She added: "I had had a smear test just eight months before so I wasn”t too concerned but when it happened a second time I started to worry.

"I was living in Dubai at the time and two weeks later I booked in to see my regular doctor.

"Just weeks later I was diagnosed with cervical cancer, I booked a flight home the same day.

"I needed to be with my friends and family in England in order to beat the disease."

Terrified Naomi from from Tamworth, West Midlands, had to wait a week for an MRI scan before she was told how advanced the disease was.

She said: "I was luckily diagnosed with the early stages of cervical cancer but I still needed surgery to remove the tumour.

"I underwent a minor operation to remove the cancerous tissue from my cervix but doctors then found another deadly tumour.

"I was then told me that my only option of survival was to have a hysterectomy.

"I was devastated as I really want to be a mother one day and to have that suddenly ripped away from me was heart breaking."

Naomi decided to research her options online and found that she was entitled to a second opinion and that she was eligible to have a trachelectomy which would remove the tumour but not her uterus.

Naomi underwent the operation at the beginning of this month and is now cancer free.

She said: "I was so happy when I found out on December 18 that I was in the clear.

"It was a miracle that I had managed to keep my fertility but I fought so hard to be given the right procedure.

"I hope other women read my story and seek a second opinion, I have changed my future.

"Even though I”ve recently separated from my husband I hope one day to have children and that has always been something I have dreamed of.”

Commenting on the blog she started to document her cancer journey, she concluded: "I started my blog just days after I was diagnosed, I was keen to get my thoughts written down.

"My experience of avoiding a hysterectomy was a difficult one, in some cases it can”t be avoided but I would always recommend researching your options as it can be life changing.

"I can”t wait to start 2015, I feel as though my life has just started over again and I”m excited to make plans for the New Year.

"When I was first diagnosed I never imaged I”d be cancer free and still able to have children just months later."

Naomi is now in remission but will have regular check-ups every three months for the next two years.
