Need advice on surgery, need hugs

Well my Gyn finally called, long story short: Pap was Atypical Glandular Cells...she did not mention the biopsy results which I had been waiting for.. but she said she had been really frustrated by my case and had consulted a GYN Oncologist, and after she told him everything they had already done for bleeding and a ton of other symptoms, he said to get me into surgery, do a hysterectomy, explore all my insides, and do a wash to try to find where the cells have come from. Pronto.

She seems to think that the hysterectomy is probably all we will need to do, odds are that is where the problem lies, but it could also be from almost any where. The last time she had a patient with this type of Pap, it took 3 months to find the source and she had the begining of ovarian cancer.

My question is... I am already a 4 year breast cancer survivor
( well I will be on May 31st) should I have a Gyn Oncologist do the surgery? My Gyn now will do it all laprascopically. She said we can discuss leaving the cervix , that is what she biopsied, maybe do a cone .

My husband has been very unsupportive of a hysterctomy over the last 2 yrs as I experienced one issue after another. He says he has read vitamins can clear up issues like mine or that my DR is just going to go ahead and do what she wants anyway, she is knife happy. I just had a D and C last month, he was sure I would come out uterusless ( is that a word?? heehe it should be)
So I have not told him yet I have decided to go ahead and have the surgery.. MY DR even went back and double checked that biopsy ( D and C ) and she is just stumped by my case.

So, let's take a vote!! Just Gyn or Oncolgist Gyn? What os the OGyn cannot do laprascopoc, should that be a consideration?
I recently lost over 50 pounds and had a lovely tummy tuck , I don't want to ruin my pretty tummy!!

Definitely! If there is any cancer concern then a gyn/onc should be doing the surgery. The doctor should make the call on the surgery, laparoscopic or say TAH. As for the scar, mine is almost unnoticeable--honestly! Yuor husband sounds as if he should definitely go to the gyn/onc with you for more on the surgery as he could use some educating shall we say. Vitamins and magic potions aren't going to help without the surgery.

Please see the onc/gyn!!! My gyn sent me out of town (about 75 miles) to a onc/gyn because she believes in them so much! And I do too! At the consult my onc/gyn told me that the women who have trouble are the ones who go to their gyn and then only come to her much later when they're having trouble. You only get one chance to do it - get the best you can! You won't regret it! Carol

Ok, that settles it, I have a call into my GYN to get the name of a Gyn Oncologist and I am making an appointment as soon as I hear back. I guess if she felt it was important enough to consult with one for my case I should take this seriously enough to USE one.
You are right, sometimes you only get one shot at this, it might as well be with a specialist.
Thank you all so much for the insight and support..
