Kind of new here

I've posted a couple of times over the past few months. I have set a surgery date, 10/29. I had a LEEP back in June without clear margins and just had a repeat colposcopy last Tuesday. The results showed that I have CIN III again. So, while the oncologist wants to do another LEEP, my regular gyn wanted to do a hysterectomy in June. I think the oncologist thinks that fertility is still an issue. But, for me its not (I think my DH has to come to terms with that) I have been blessed with three wonderful kids and want to make sure I am around to be their mom!. So, my regular gyn is going to do the hysterectomy. The oncologist is not close to home and I feel more comfortable with my regular gyn. I should mention that I also have fibroid tumors and a large cyst on my right ovary (for at least four months!) and a solid mass on my left ovary (my CA125 was 14). So, looking at the big picture taking into account all of my gyn problems, the hysterectomy seems to be the most effective treatment at this point.

I want to say this web site has been a great find for me and I look forward to continue posting.

If I were in your position, I would also make the choice to have a hysterectomy. Looking at the bigger picture with the other problems you have, it does not seem worth it to continue battling your recurring dysplasia. I also had a LEEP which was not successful in removing my CINIII, so I followed my gyn's advice (he had urged me 3 years earlier to have a hyst because of my fibroids, but I resisted at the time) and had the hyst. I also had my ovaries removed because my mother and grandmother had ovarian cancer and breast cancer.

I have not regretted my decision. I feel better without the fibroids and I believe that removing my diseased cervix was the right choice. I was a bit worried about the sexuality issue, but everything seems to be working OK. My DH was not very supportive of my decision to have the hyst, and I found that hurtful, but we have worked it out.

Waiting and preparing to have a hysterectomy can be stressful and worrisome, but I have seen many people on this board say that the waiting is the hardest part. Having repeated tests and treatments for cervical dysplasia is also stressful and worrisome. Good luck to you. I hope you will be happy with whatever decision you make.
