New Doctor - New Biopsies

Hello again ladies -- I have been scarce around here --- but now I am back and needed a place to go and share my worries...Well I had an unhappy experience with the new gyno and the outcome of my visit --- (had a leep for CIN III last October but it had clear margins and I thought this was behind me --- visit in February to gyn/oncologist was Normal) The new doctor on Friday said she saw two spots which did not look normal but did not look abnormal either -- so what does that mean??? Anyway she did biopsies of the two spots -- ouch! She said this will just pinch -- so I asked if she had ever had one done and she said no so I explained to her that is it more than just a pinch -- getting a shot may be a pinch (and that sometimes is more than a pinch also) but this is a pressure and burning pain --- thank goodness I took some ibuprofen before the visit -- I must have had an intuition. Anyway when it was all over and I was out at the counter making the next appointment (which I probably won't keep) because I truly think this one is a ditz -- she said "oh I forgot to do a pap" but don't worry because a biopsy is actually more thorough -- duh -- for that spot but what about the rest of the cervix??? Well she did do a ECC also so that will give me an idea about the cervical canal -- she did not do an internal -- and the office was empty -- I was the only one there --- it was the first visit after lunch --- I think I may look into Planned Parenthood -- I want to find a doctor I have some amount of confidence in and so far that is not happening and I am running out of doctors who are in my city and on my insurance plan. She had the equipment to take a picture of the cervix -- it was after the biopsies were done -- she had to do one twice because she said the skin was scarred and thicker because of the leep and past cryosurgery....anyway there was a spot that looked a shade darker but it was no where near the biopsy spot -- and she did not do a pap so I am wondering doesn't that spot go unchecked??? This is frustrating --- Well I am keeping my fingers crossed that she was wrong and that all is normal. But now that spot is weighing on my mind --- I still have an appointment with the Gyn/oncologist for August 7th -- think I am gonna keep that one!! At least he seemed to know what he was doing. Thanks for letting me vent ladies.

Yikes!!! Carman

You are right... Stay with the oncologist/gynocologist.
Every doctor needs to start out somewhere BUT in our situations, we want a very very experienced Real thing!!!

Keep in touch and hope all works out well.

The gyn/onc appt. is the best. But . . . is there any way you can see him sooner? August is a semi-long way away. Let us know what happens, and best of luck to you!

I am sorry you are still having to deal with all of this. I would agree with Siren, that maybe you could get in earlier with the gyn/ocn. It may be worth the call. Good luck!
