bad pap after hyst

Someone on this board posted a while back about having a bad pap after a hyst and so needed further treatment. Does anyone remember who that was so I can go look up the posts.
Thank you.

bad pap after hyst

Hi there!

There have been a couple of posts around here not too long ago on this subject; I've written a few of them myself .

I kept my cervix with my hyst, as I'd never had a bad Pap before. They were continuing normal until about six months ago, where one came back with dysplasia (HPV-negative). The follow-up, a couple of months later, was positive for CIS (carcinoma-in-situ) and neoplasia -- it also, for the first time, was positive for HPV. I had a cryo procedure, and my followup is scheduled for April. Hopefully, that's the end of it for me!

That being said, I'm doing what I can to strengthen my immune system and taking folic acid especially; there have also been some threads about diet and HPV. It can lie dormant for years, which is probably what happened with me. I'm trying to tell it to go dormant again!

Even if you had your cervix removed, HPV and dysplasia can occur in the vagina, which is why most recommendations are for periodic Paps post-hyst. It sounds like you had a problem with one? Most of the time, they can be dealt with pretty easily; I'm hopeful that my cryo is the last treatment I'll need!

If you do a search using my username, with "cryo*" as the search term, and searching only for posts in the last six months, I think you'll find that thread that you're looking for!

bad pap after hyst

Thanks for the reply. I had hyst quite a while ago for invasive adenocarcinoma. Now this was the first abnormal pap I have had and I was hoping the whole thing was over years ago. I had my vagina and bladder rebuilt due to problems after radiation. I had radical hyst. I guess I was pretty surprised to get the call from the doctor. I will be having a colposcopy and biopsy. I don't know if I am HPV positive but I assume so. I plan to ask to get tested because if I carry the strains that are most responsible for cervical cancer then maybe I should know.
I will check out your other posts. Thanks
