OB/GYN surgeon cannot remove cancerous cervix?

Dear Huskergal,

My experience started with a D&C for abnormal bleeding and a fibroid....From biopsies taken and slides he took during my surgery, my regular gyn. had various pathologists look at them with him, he also sent several slides to M.D. Anderson....After the CT scan, my gyn told me that he is still unsure if the cancer is in-situ or invasive. He told me that if it was in-situ he could probably do the hysterectomy however, he wanted me to see a gyn/onc, because if it was invasive, I would have to have a TAH. My reg. gyn. said that he only does about 1 TAH per year whereas a gyn/onc does hundreds of them per year and a gyn/onc also is an expert in this field. He also told me that you need to go to someone who can do the best for you. I am so grateful to my gyn for being honest with me.
So I guess you could say that ob/gyn can do cancer surgery, but,
good ones know their limitations and choose to do what is good for their patients.

Hugs and prayers and you ready yourself for your castle visit...
