Hello all,
I have not posted yet on this board, usually I'm on pre-op.
Right now, after having read all your threads, I'm feeling pretty crappy about my DR. All he told me is that I have extreme dysplasia and that it is covering my entire cervix. I also have HPV.
Now my question is, everyone keeps saying they are at CIN 1 or 2....where am I at??????? I have had Carcinoma Insitu previously and it was treated w/ a leep and a I'm scheduled for a TAV at the end of the month.
does anyone have any idea where severe dysplasia is in that catagory???

Thanks for anyone who can clear this up for me! I'm freaking out right now!

Sounds like a CIN3 to me. It is sometimes also called Carcinoma in situ. It sounds like your doctor doesn't think he can treat it with another Leep or Cone because it is so extensive.

If you have questions you should write them down and call your doctor and ask.

I hope this helps.

Got lots of answers today

Hello all..
i called my Nurse today and had her read my lab results to me, and sure enough, it's CIN III. Then the Dr called me and reassured me that I'm not on death's door, that we don't know how invasive it is yet, and if I have anymore questions to call him.
I feel so much better after talking to him.
So I have one more question..I have a maternal history of ovarian cancer, my Dr said that there is less than 3% chance of me getting it after my TAH, but to me it's still a chance. this is my 3rd bout w/ cancer and am wonderin what to do about those ovaries......I'm only 29......
He made a point...."If you think you feel crappy now, wait until you throw yourself right into menopause".....
I need advice on how many women actually got ovarian cancer AFTER their hysterectomies.

If your ovaries are removed, you chances of getting "ovarian" cancer are very slim indeed. There is a cancer called "primary peritoneal cancer" which is what "ovarian" cancer is called when there are no ovaries (if that makes sense).

Does your doc intend tor emove your ovaries - not all hysts for cervical cancer involve removal of the ovaries.
