4 Weeks Pathology Report

I had my Hyst 6-12. They left the ovaries. What started all of it was pain when I urinate, just when my bladder is almost finsihed emptying. It was unbearable durng my period. In 93 I had to have the freezing done. The pathology report showed that dysplasia was found on top of my cervix. The Dr. said that I was lucky that I decided to go ahead w/the surgery due to the fact that where the cells were located they would have never found it until it was too late. I am scared. I am 30 and have a wonderful family. I was too much in shock to ask questions, but I go back in three weeks. He did say that I would be scheduled for a PAP every three to six months. Is this normal and should I mention that the pain is still there when I urinate? Please, Please reply.

Hope this helps

Sorry to hear you are still having problems. Any time there is pain you should tell your DD. Remember no quetion is a dumb one if its about your health. I waited to long so I paid for my mistake. Don't wait !!!!

Definately tell your doctor about the pain!!! If you don't tell him, then he will have no idea and you will continue to worry if this is normal or not!! We are not physicians here, so we can't tell you what is wrong, and personally I have not had bladder problems. Please don't ever hesitate to ask your dr anything...that's what he gets paid the big bucks for!
As for your paps, normally the dr will schedule anywhere from 3 mos to 6 mos to yearly. Please make sure that you discuss all of this with your doctor and ask WHY! If you have questions now, then write them down so you won't forget when you get in there! This is very normal to feel like this because you have the time now and your mind is free to wonder. Take care!!

Hi, Ashley!

The good news is that the surgery is over so the bad cells have been removed! Hooray! It's pretty typical to have a PAP every 3 months for the first 2 years and that's just to make sure that nothing was left behind but normal, healthy tissue. After that you might go to 6 month or to 12 month follow-ups, it just depends on your doctor and your comfort level. In the majority of women everything is normal from here on out. Just in a very few circumstances does there continue to be any problems.

As far as the bladder, absolutely call your doctor. S/he is the only one who knows what else can be done for you. Has the pain continued since the surgery or did it get better then start up again recently? I did have some bladder discomfort with urination for the first 2-3 weeks after surgery but then it went away (I had no problems with that before surgery, though).

Good luck with everything! Let us know how you're doing!

Hugs Ashley!

I can't add anything to what has been said, but you really should call the doctor about your pain. You don't need to wait until your 3 week appointment. Just call and explain it to him and I am sure he will be able to give you some help rather than have you wait and worry.
A pap every 3 - 6 months is normal in this case I would say Ashley. But you want them to keep a good check on you so it will just become part of your routine and something you have to do.
All the best to you, please let us know how you are doing.

Hi Ashley, welcome x x , it is good that your surgery is over. When you have dyplasia it is perfectly normal for the Dr to want to check you more often, especially in the first year. It is very normal to feel scared, especially when the word cancer is in the picture.

I would certainly mention the pain to your Dr especially since it has been present since before your hyster. I had pain at the very end of emptying my bladder, after my op and it lasted for about 3 or 4 weeks. But do mention it to your DR, it could be an infection. You take care and please remember that we are here for you x x
