Pathology Question-No News, Good News?

I had a tvh on 11/6/03 for severe dysplasia that was found both in pap smear and in biopsy. I have not received a call from dr. regarding the pathology report. Should I be concerned? Should I call? I asked if I had cancer when I saw the dr. post-op in hospital and she said that they wouldn't know until it came back from pathology.
Any advice from anyone who has been there would be appreciated.

most dr's will go over the pathology report at your post-op check.
i would think that if anything significant was found in your pathology report, your dr would have called you.
if youre uneasy about the fact that your dr hasnt contacted you yet, dont hesitate to put a call in to his/her office to inquire about the report.
stay well

Hi Heap,

I saw my doc one week after being released from the hospital to have my staples removed. I asked him at that time if he had the pathology report back (I had my hyst due to cancer). He checked and even contacted the hospital, but they didn't have it yet. He called me the following night to give me the great news after he finally got the report. If you didn't have your hyst because of cancer the doc might not have thought to contact you with the report, either that or he might not have gotten it back yet. I would definitely give the office a call and ask, let them know you're anxious to know the results ASAP. We pay our docs good money, we shouldn't feel funny calling them.

Good luck with your results!! I hope you get the same great news I got.

Take care,
Mary Ellen

Thanks for the posts!
I'll call today and see if there's any news.
I had my tvh due to cervical dysplesia. Just hoping that everything was caught in time and no further treatment is needed.

I had my TAH/LSO for severe dysplasia as well. I didn't here from my gyn for over a week, so I decided to call. Apparently, it had not become cancer, so the doctor had planned on going over it with me at my next post-op. It turned out my severe dysplasia progressed to Carcinoma in situ, but no evidence of invasion. I also had some other gyn problems, all turned out to be benign.

I would also suggest getting copies of your pathology report for your own peace of mind. I know all of my cysts/growths/etc were benign, but I still want my report so I can see it with my own eyes. As I've read on here, sometimes there are some interesting things on that report.

Good luck finding out today!

I've got great news! NO CANCER! Yipee.
As I'm recovering at home I truly thought that in a couple of weeks I would get that dreaded call.

I'm interested in obtaining the path. report. How do you request? Where do you request it?

Great news! Congratulations!!! When you go see your doc next ask for a copy of the pathology report. They don't make much sense though, I warn you now. LOL I felt like I was reading a foreign language. LOL
