In brief: Maybe

Assuming that you have "non-invasive cervical cancer" and if you are done having children, hysterectomy is fine.
If not, there are other options available to preserve your potential fertility. Your general gynecologist should be able to direct this care for you unless you have "invasive cervical cancer", in which case you should consult with a gyn oncologist.

In brief: One of the issues is

Desire for fertility, XRT eliminates that, and the stage limits surgery to stages i&ii.
Your age (36) is borderline. Survival and control locally may be quite similar. Your team should include a gynecological oncologist and a radiation oncologits.
