Another problem

Hi,

I had a TAH/BSO October of 2003. I have had to have 5 surgeries in my incision betwen November of 2002 and August of 2003 due to an infection that wouldn't heal. This is finally healed, we hope.

I have a new problem I am worried about. I went to my Dr. and was complaining about side effect of my hysterectomy and he decided to do an exam. My Dr. feels Ihave either dysplasia or possible cancer of the vulva and I have to have a biopsy done on 2/19. Does anyone know anything about this problem? I am really stressing over this biopsey. Can anyone help.

Thanks,
Pattie

phanson, when I went to the gyn/onc for my exam pre-op she found something on my vulva. I had a biopsy on the spot. The results came back carcinoma-in-situ. That is terribly scary but I had a wide excision at the same time as my TAH/BSO and it was all removed. I need to have follow up at 6 months post op and you can bet that I am looking at the area all the time. If you find that you do have something there, see a gyn oncologist. I've done a lot of reading on the internet. There are varying degrees of dysplasia (mine was the furthest along toward real cancer). I hope that all goes well for you. Keep us posted on how you do. I know this is terribly scary, and people don't talk about it. Only one person I work with knows and a few friends and my husband. I just don't want to discuss my vulva with everyone, and everyone seems to want to know what is wrong with you. You're in my thoughts.

Pattie,

I am so sorry you have had so many procedures over the last months! Have you seen a gyn oncologist? Please do! They are really the experts on gyn cancer, and vulvar cancer is relatively rare.

I'm not positive why your gyn wouldn't do a biopsy on the spot - a quickie only takes a couple moments. I'kll bet you can get into a gyn onc before the 19th

Hi,

Thanks for the great advise. My Dr. didn't do the biopsey right away because he had to get approval from my insurance. I have thought seriously about contacting my P.C to get a referral to a gyn oncologist. Hopefully I can get it before the 19th. I am stressing over this alot.

Thanks, again for the great advise and the support.

Pattie,

I'm sorry about so many complications regarding your incision, and especially about this new problem.

Don't know much about vulvar cancer, but I hope that you can get a quick evaluation and then do whatever needs to be done--you don't need this added stress!

Keeping you in prayer.

Blessings.
Marlene
