adenocarcinoma in-situ

Hello! This is my first time. I am in desperate need of advice from others who have experienced what I am experiencing. I had severe dysplasia found through an adnormal paps. I had a Leeps loop done and they found in pathology that I have adenocarcinoma in-situ. I went to another doctor for a second opinion. Both suggest that I have another leeps loop to determine more information. My fear is that perhaps I should be having a hysterectomy to insure my health. I have another leeps scheduled for next week but it is nagging me reading the messages in here about how ultimately people are finding that there is no cervex left to take a paps from, etc. I am 37 and have no kids so a hyster. would be so final but I haven't really planned on having kids. I guess I am scared to have the surgery but want to make the right decision. Any suggestions? Thank you.

adenocarcinoma in-situ

Hi Matilee,

I, too, was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in situ, which was removed by cone biopsy. That was done by my gynocologist. Afterwards I went to a gyn/oncologist for a second opinion, and he recommended follow-ups by pap smear every four months for two years and then every six months after that. However, I am plagued by thoughts of it returning, and for that reason, my gynocologist has told me that she would be willing to do a hysterectomy for my own peace of mind. But I can't decide if I really want to go that route although it would be so reassuring to know it is gone forever! So I'd be interested in hearing what you decide to do. I hope this was a little bit helpful. Good luck to you!

Thanks but i just don't know

Thanks for you reply but I am not going to be much help right now. I will share with you as soon as i decide. Question, are you clean from any adenocarcinoma in-situ since the Cone? If so, I think I would monitor with Paps. My situation is that after the Leeps, I definitely still have it and they want to do another one. I know what you mean though, there is no right answer. Everyone keeps telling me just to get they hyster to save my life. That is the way I am leaning, but what if I never needed it to begin with?

adenocarcinoma in-situ

A lot of drs are hesitant on doing hysts if the patient does not have children. For some reason, not sure if it is fear of the patient retaliating or not, the drs always insist that we MAY want more children or May want children at all. These doctors are protecting themselves in a sense, and in this day and age who can blame them?
My best advice for both of you is this...get all of the info that you can pertaining to the actual hyst. Be aware that afterwards, if your ovaries are taken and sometimes even if they are not, you will be thrown into menopause. There is a lot behind this word and to get a full view you can visit the Jungle. Talk with your doctor since he/she knows your past medical history as well as your family history the best. Then last, but not least, go with what is in your heart. This is a decision that only you can make, and one that you will have to live with.
I wish you both the very best and always remember that we are here to help you both in anyway that we can.
