Removal of cervix -past CIN III

Hello ladies

I am a new member and have read the majority of cervix removal threads here, but my concern is that I have a history of CIN III in 88 and I have had diathermy, along with yrs of preventative measures and all pap smears are perfect now
I am scheduled for a Hyster in 3 weeks for fibriod 15cm, along with hemorrhaging etc etc - and because I had a previous history of CIN III - I should consider having my cervix removed also.
I am 43yrs . At first I was told to remove it all (not the ovaries) however, after I raised my concerns on removal of my cervix, I was told it is up to what I want to do and to tell him when I go back in a week.
I am really would like to hear if others have had the same history as I and if they chose to remove the cervix also. I am concerned about not having that buffer at the end of the vaginal - the feeling of being "bear" or the feeling of open spaces. I am probably being pedantic but i am really wanting other women's thoughts on this
DO you get tender at the end of the vagina? Has anyone had their cervix removed because of CIN and was it the better choice?
At first I was upset about having my uteras removed but have so far come to terms with it and I was concerned about inercourse after and the "o", but after reading others experience with everything being "Ok" , now I have settled that part.
But I am very concerned about removing my cervix but mostly of being tender or constantly sore and the end of the vagina- should I be worried? Should I be concerned about having past history of CINIII and does it play an important part in making a desicion for others??

thank you ladies

Re: Removal of cervix -past CIN III

I also had CIN III/CIS a few years ago...I had a cervical conization to remove the pre-cancerous cells. I had not had an abnormal pap since that surgery....

When I was told I had to have a hysterectomy, there was no questions that I wanted my cervix gone. I didn't want to have to go through another issue down the road.

As far as pain at the end of the vagina.....I have none... I can't even tell it is missing. Nothing feels different to me (other than having no pain).

I'm not saying that you HAVE to have your cervix removed because of your history, but it did play a big part in my decision to get rid of it. It is definitely a personal choice that only you can make.

Best of luck to you!

Re: Removal of cervix -past CIN III

I don't have any soreness or different feeling without a cervix. There is no feeling of void or anything missing. It just feels the same and if it weren't for mentally knowing it, walking around every day is like before. I didn't have cervical problems but had uterine cancer so there was no choice. Good luck making your decision.

Re: Removal of cervix -past CIN III

I'm glad to hear these responses. I've never had an abnormal pap. But I always kept a cervical infection. Sadly, I'm allergic to the antibiotics that is a simple cure. So, I told the doc to remove it. I didn't see any reason to keep it and put up with the nasty symptoms it caused.

I got my operative & pathology report from the hospital last week and saw something interesting in the path report. The doc said I had abnormal cervical cells. I've NEVER had an abnormal pap and I'm shocked at this.

I had been having my doubts about having it removed up until last week and I'm now glad I did.

Now, I'm just waiting a little longer to see how things feel during sex. I want to make sure things are healed well first.

Re: Removal of cervix -past CIN III

Hello Everyone
Want to thank you here for replying to my thread and giving me your experiences, I couldnt have done it without you all and I am serious!!!
I am now 5 days post op- and glad they took what they said they would and feel better already with out having the large fibriod growth feeding off me ! So I gave it a name Flo (as in Flow) it was better to see it as an intruder for me and it helped me cope with it all.
Had cervix, uterus and left fallopian tube removed (as it was fused to the large fibriod gunk in the uterus) and I am now finally home, and besides the normal pain in the first day of surgery, and a bit of blood loss etc everything else has been a ok-except the bed you have to sleep in- horrible...oh and the food was ...well you know hospital food!!! lol
I am already feeling the health of having it gone, my stomach (in my case) has gone down because of the size is originally and yes I have a swelly belly its nothing in comparison to what I thought it would be. I am now home after 4 days but thats because they keep you here longer in Australia than other countries.
I am tired, sleepy and using this time to rest as much as possible and the pain would be called uncomfortable.
My Gyn was talking of there being a cut if it was too big and even though it was too big, he took it out vaginally by debulking it and I think that is what is helping me at this point. By not having a cut in the stomach
BUT most importantly I have this site with all these wonderful inspiring women who have gone before and paved the way for us to have so much knowledge and insight before going in
Anyway I am off to bed again to rest on Drs orders, he also wants me to call him in a week and then 2 weeks , as he knows women usually don't want to bother him so he has made it mandatory...really have so much respect for my Gyno now
hugs to you all

I've only just read your thread, and it's great to see your happy outcome (I am only a few days past you in terms of recovery) - BUT... I just wanted to say, not all Australian patients are kept in longer than elsewhere in the world. I had my hyster last Monday: entered hosp 6am, in theatre 7:30am - left hosp 9am Tuesday! So I think has to do with how you pull up after the surgery (and I was pretty bloody-minded about getting home, too).

I hope your recovery continues just as well as it has started

Re: Removal of cervix -past CIN III

Hello Everyone
Thought I would an through an update.

Well....I am doing really well. Better than I thought I would...yes I had some hick-ups butsince week 7 everything just fell into place and I am very grateful and blessed.

All my worries about having the cervix removed were just jitters as I don't feel any different if not Better!!!

Thanks for your post torifrog. ITs great to hear you were out so soon, a couple of my girlfriends all had to be in for 3 days min. SO thats great that you were able to get home so soon.

And Traci & greyown...thank you soo soo soo much for your advise as I kept your words in my head everytime I got the jitters.

On the other hand, sex is great, better than before, no probelm with the big "O" and was great to have it first off the rank!! lol
I think the huge growth was just getting in the way and I did put it off till a few days ago just to make sure and there was no after effects,no soreness etc etc. I told myself that I hadn't had the operation and it all went well ...phew!

Still have soreness on the right side, with some internal scaring but considering what I have been through...think I am quite blessed and not concentrating on the negative. My Dr was so wonderful, he should have cut but kept de-bulking the growth through the vagina.

Although I do get weepy for no reason, where as I used to be a very controlled and strong I cry at adverts LOL. Sure it will all calm down soon

Oh ...I keep thinking that I need to put on a pad when I go to the toilet thinking I am going to bleed!!rofl but then I just laugh at myself...habits, they certainly are hard to break sometimes but its great to have clean underwear (you know what I mean!!) LOL
