So, I am waiting for the phone call from my drs office telling me when my surgery will be scheduled.....but I all ready have a question...
I have CIN2 & CIN3, will they biopsy my cervix after the hyster to make sure it is only CIN3? What are the chances it actually is cancer?
Has anyone had this happen?
Hi, Im having my surgery tomorrow due to bad PAPS. I have had 2 LEEPS in the last 6 months, last one still came back 1 grade below cancer. The doc says he is very perplexed as my colposcopys look perfect, but the bad cells are hiding some where. He said it is best to get it out because it is obviously heading toward cancer and can no longer be controlled. I am choosing to stay positive, believing they will not find cancer, and if they do theat they will get it all and I will be done! O the doc did say he will do a frozen section of the cervix during surgery with a pathologist there to check for cancer! Im sending great thoughts out to you! This site is awesome and should answer a lot of ur questions!
Hi 2ndtime, your question is a good one. You may want to post on the cancer concerns forum so it will be seen by many more ladies with more experience. Good luck with everything, your doing the best thing asking questions and learning as much as you can. Knowledge is power and provides us with choices
2nd time, yes, everything that is removed during surgery will be sent to a pathologist which means that the uterus and cervix removed during the hysterectomy will be examined by the pathologist and a report will be created that details what is found. i'm assuming that you have other issues besides for cervical dysplasia? a hysterectomy is not the first thing that should be done to 'treat' cervical dysplasia. a woman can have a leep or conization to remove the dysplasia without having major surgery and without losing her uterus which is a very important organ which does more than just play host during pregnancies. a hysterectomy doesn't eliminate the hpv .....and you still need to be monitored for potential vaginal dysplasia. be sure you're fully informed of your options and get a second opinion before major surgery. knowledge is power!
robink940-I hope everything went well & hope you are feeling ok!
catwoman000-thank you for the info I wanted to make sure everything would be tested! I do have other reason besides the cervical dysplasia(this is my 2nd time having it) for having the hyster. I have a lot of abnormal bleeding(10-12 day periods on birth control pills), bleeding after intercouse and years of unexplained pelvic pain. I am actually looking foward to the surgery. I am also aware that the hyster will not clear the HPV and I will have to continue to have yearly paps.
Hi 2nd time, I have been dealing with a lot of abnormal bleeding to, my pap was clear and so was an endometrial biopsy. My d&c showed adeno carcinom in situ, which was a complete surprise to everyone. I am getting a hysterectomy in less than two weeks... now that I know what I know, abdormal bleeding scares the heck out of me and I want it out. i'm glad you are getting it done!
