Hi To All,
I'm So Happy I Took Your Advice To Seek A Second Opinion. She Did A D&c And Found A Large Displasia In The Uterus Nothing On The Cervix She Also Said No Cancer Thats The Good News, But I Will Have To Have A Tvh On Feb 15. I Keep My Ovaries Which Is Better Then My First Doctor . He Wanted To Take It All And Be Done With It!!!he Also Said I Would Not Need Pap Smear Anymore, Well Even I Know Better. With This Hpv I Would Still Want To Checked.

I Do Have A Question About Getting In And Out Of Bed. I Sleep On A Futon With A Mattress Which Is Very Low To The Ground. Should I Raise It? If So How High? I Forgot How High Bed Should Be
Thanks For All Your Help,surfer

Hey surfer, sounds like your 2nd opinion went MUCH better! But I would be concerned about being told you wouldn't need paps anymore. That would make me question other things the doc said. I would ask what the reasoning behind that advice was. You may have to look at reports from both docs and make the best decision for YOU.

If you're thinking about after your hyster...you may want to start lookng for a recliner instead! I spent 6 weeks in mine, mainly because my bathroom is on the first floor so it was all-around easier than getting in to/out of bed.

I did try sleeping on my couch a few nights (when I had gotten SICK of the recliner) but the recliner was way more comfy...and easier to get out of in the morning.

That Opinion About The Pap Smear Was Given By
My First Doctor. When He Said That I Got Chills Up My Back. I'm Thinking I Don't Think I Want You To Operate On Me. That's When I Thought I Better Get Out Of This Town Altogether. Our Hospital Here Has A Bad Reputaion. I'm Going To The One That Has To Fix All Of Our Hospital's Mistakes. My New Doctor Had A Lot Of Different Things To Say Plus She Knows Alot About Herbal Things And Willing To Work With N.D.'s Even My Husband Liked This New Doctor Better.
Thanks For The Suggestion About The Recliner. I Do Have A Very Comfy One.

Surfer, so glad you followed your instincts and went for that second opinion. Yea, that "no more PAPs" comment would have scared me too.

Re: bed question. Another thing you might try is a small stool or chair next to the futon -- something to grasp onto as you raise yourself up might help. If you have a walker you can borrow for about a week that would be good to (you won't need it to walk, but it gives you some leverage getting off the bed or couch). I did stay on the couch for the first week or so -- just easier to get up and down.

Good for you, surfer, on getting that second opinion. Hope you have a speedy recovery from the surgery.

I, too, slept in the recliner for a few nights after returning home. It was just so much easier to get out of because the arms of the chair provided leverage. I wish you well.
