I am a newbie......

I am 33yr. 11yrs ago had stage 3 dysplasia. Had 1/2 my cervix removed. Had good paps until Jan 2nd had colpo...Endo biopsy. shows benign cancer cells in the endo. I am having hysto due to Hypermennoreah and severe Anemia..I take 700 mg of iron a day to keep iron at a 10-12 hgb. I have pain all the time (don't know the cause). I feel good about the decision for hysto, will keep ovaries.
I went on a board and saw the link for Adenomyosis...I have every one of these symptom's. I am taking the advice of calling a Gyn/ Oncol. for advice. I wonder if you have any "been there done that " advice? Do I just wait to see the results of the Path results?
Thank you for any advice you may have, Ryn

Hi Ryn

Welcome. I have ovarian so I really can't help you but it sounds as if this hysterectomy is a needed step for you as is the calling the gyn/onc. Best wishes for successful surgery and uneventful recovery. Ellen

Ryn Hi,

First off s

I had endometrial cancer and can't be much help to you except that if your cancer is caught early a hyst will be all you need.

Your path results will show the ono/gyne what needs to be done. good luck. You'll be fine.

Welcome to Cancer Concerns.
I am not sure what you mean when you say benign cancer cells.
But I feel very strongly, that if cancer is suspected, please see a gyn oncologist before your hysterectomy. It seems that too often after cancer surgery performed by an ob/gyn, ladies have to go back for further surgery and staging by a gyn oncologist surgeon.
Seeing a gyn oncologist is a decision you just can't go wrong with.
Please keep in touch.

Hi ryn,

I must agree with seeing the gyno/onco. They are such a specified group of people and who can deal with your situation the best. They are compassionate people.
Does your ob office reccommend one. If not your insurance co- may find one for you.

I wasn't exactly excited about the hysto- but a year out from it- I am glad I did it. I don't have those "shadows" in my mind and lurking thoughts.

Best of luck to you. Sounds like u are on the right track. This board has some great links at the top of it.
