At last! A GyneOncologist and a She!

After nearly three months of getting trundled around to specialists and subspecialists - the CIN3 reading that got me started on this journey did the predictable thing - it progressed! This FINALLY got the specialists working with me worried....and at last they are beginning to insist on priority scheduling to the appropriate specialist - a Gyne Oncologist.

Why so long you may ask? I did. Now I am told that the colposcopy showed extensive and severe dysplasia and lesions - appearing to move into the uterus - but nothing was done - I was assured we had caught it early - and we had the advantage of time - now of course, we have lost that advantage as we have frittered it away waiting for appointments that should have, and could have, been prioritized.

My diagnosis has been lifted to carcinoma in situ - cervical and possibly uterine. The lesions have spread, but the cell type has yet to be determined - the OBGYN has now admitted that his expertise does not include oncology, and has referred me on.

Robyn, guess you better add me to the list of Our Diagnosis!

By this Monday, I should know what I am dealing with - hopefully still in time to have a few options in terms of treatment.

Happy Fourth of July to all of you celebrating in the USA. My it be safe and JOYFUL.

Boy Col! What a story! This is a perfect example of how doctors vary in their management of carcinoma in citu. There are many women that have posted their experiences on hystersisters that have had severe dysplasia. The treatment varies anywhere from, "hurry up and have kids now if you want them" or "hysterectomy asap". Unfortunately, it is very difficult for a doctor to guess at what rate your CIN111 will turn into cancer or spread into your uterus. This is especially true if you have the HPV virus that lurks deep inside your body and pops up anytime it pleases.

Thank goodness you are now being seen by a gyn-oncologist. If your hyster gets scheduled soon, you will most likely be cancer or lesion free after the hysterectomy. My situation is unusual. I will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you for posting on cancer concerns. Come and vent here anytime you need to! Take care and ssss
