Pelvic pain and other questions

I "stumbled" across this website and I'm so glad I did. I have been reading and learning alot. I had originally posted this in Hysterectomy Options & Alternatives and someone suggested I post it here.

A little bit of history; I'm 33 and had a tubal after I had my last son was born 10 yrs. ago. I had my first bout of cervical cancer when I was 22. I have had a conization, 3 freezings (forget the technical term) and they also found pre-cancerous cells on the vaginal wall that they cut and burned.

I am experiencing pain most of the month, but it gets EXTREME during my menstrual cycle (landed me in the ER this past Thursday night), heavy/irregular periods, painful intercourse...the list goes on and on. I had a pelvic by my primary doc and was told that my cervix was "hard" (new one for me, never heard that term used before!) and that it had some abnormal areas (he thought maybe from the conization but wasn't sure?). The pap came back ok though. When I was in the ER, the doc there ordered a pelvic ultrasound and I'm still waiting on those results. I'm fighting with my insurance company trying to find an ob/gyn that will take my insurance.

When I do find one and hopefully find out what is wrong, my feeling is regardless of what is wrong, I want to have a hysterectomy and also have my cervix removed. I've had more than one bout with cancer because of HPV (found out I had this when I first was dx'd with cancer) or whatever it is that has made me so lucky and it's not like I can have anymore kids. I just feel like I can't keep tempting fate and winning, that one of these times I won't be so lucky. Thoughts, ideas, opinions?

Wow, I am so glad that you found us!! Welcome!!
It sounds to me like your head is definately thinking clearly! If I were you, I wouldn't want to live in worry either! I know that when my doc told me cervical cancer, I looked at him and said, "I'm done with it, so just take it out of there cause I can't live like this!" I had no doubt in my mind, and it sounds like you too have reached that point.
Please know that we are all here for you! I hope to see more posts from you! Best of luck...and if you need anything, please feel free to email me!
