Severe Dysplasia and Hysterectomy

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to have a cone biopsy or to have a hysterectomy.

I had a LEEP in February for moderate to severe dysplasia and thought the problem would be taken care of. My first follow-up paps test showed abnormal glandular cells of the cervix. The biopsy's were positive for severe dysplasia.

My doctor has given me the choice of having a cone biopsy or a hysterectomy. He said that I'm one step away from the cells becoming cancerous, but that the cone biopsy may solve the problem. If I test positive again for dysplasia, he will definately want to do a hysterectomy.

I'm not sure what to do. Part of me is leaning toward taking care of the problem now completely with a hysterectomy and only going through one procedure. I don't want to risk developing invasive cancer. I would appreciate any help or experiences that you have to share.

Thanks.

Severe Dysplasia and Hysterectomy

Michelej,

I know exactly what you are going through and all that I can tell you is that for me, the hysterectomy was the right choice. I had a Leep in 2001 for CINIII, and by Feb 2003 it was back and showed CIS. I decided not to have the cone, although it was offered to me simply because I was scared that she wouldn't be able to get clear margins. I was told that dysplasia has about a 1% reoccurance rate after a hysterectomy and I was satisfied with that information. I am 8 weeks post-op and have absolutely no regrets and more peace of mind than I have had in years.
I will keep you in my ers
Best of luck in whatever you decide,

I understand what you are going through. For the last 3 years I have been visiting the doctor every 6 months only to watch my CIN level go from 1 to 3. Now I meet with the surgeon on Thurs. to schedule the hyster. It's a terrifing wait every time to see if it's cancer yet. I like my chances without all those parts, they can take mine!I can live without aunt flo as long as I get to live!!

Good luck making your decision, it's not an easy one.
