adenocarcinoma insitu

Last year I had a hysterectomy for adenocarcinoma insitu. I first had a cone biopsy which did not have clear margins, then two weeks later the hyst. My question is, has anyone had this, what was the follow up? I have had one pap since and my doctor just says "I must be followed up carefully", however has not given me any plan. Is it normal to have a pap just once a year? Thanks!

You should probably been seen every six months. I had stage 1a adenocarcinoma and had to go every 3 months for the first year and every six months since then.

I just had my TAH for carcinoma in situ. I fully expect to have follow-up paps every four to six months for two years, as recommended by both my gyn and gyn/onc. I would definetely question your doc. Of course, my insurance only covers one pap per year, so the others are on me, but well worth the expense for peace of mind.

I had CIS and my gyn was very clear that I needed to have follow-up PAP's every 3 months for the first 2 years, and then every 6 months for the next 3 years. That seems to be a pretty typical follow-up plan for cervical cancers and precancers. You might like to follow-up with your doc and ask specifically what your care plan should be.

Good luck!

Same for me. After radical hysterectomy for cervical adenocarcinoma insitu, I've had followups every 3 months. And yikes, two of my paps were questionable. But they proved okay. (At least vaginally. Two of my remaining nodes are now in question, but that has nothing to do with the paps.)

same here...

I had CIS and TVH last year. Since, I have had paps every six months, and intend to continue on my doctor's advice, for at least three years. I'd ask my doctor if I were you...

Diagnosis today - adenocarcinoma
I had biopsies through D & C that prompted a discussion for a hysterectomy with Pre-cancer complex hyperplasia and then based on the fibroids we decided to go ahead with a radical hysterectomy 11/19/03 I had wanted to save the cervix and overaries but the doctor convinced me this was not in my best interest, the path following surgery looked good but then the final came in and they were so surprised they sent it to Sloane Kettering for a second review. The DR asked me to follow up with a radiational oncologist which I did minutes later. I am numb and frightened at the same time. Is he being over cautious since none of the previous posters mentioned the radiation followup.
