Hi, Brenda!

There are several ladies here who have had a TAH for cervical cancer. Mine was for stage 0, so it was not a radical TAH. About one year after my TAH I had a PAP come back abnormal. My doc followed that up with a colposcopy (with vinegar test) and found no evidence of any problems. He sent in several scrapings and all came back normal. So, while it's certainly easier and less nerve-wracking for them to come back normal the first time around, sometimes they can come back abnormal and it doesn't necessarily mean there's a problem.

We all tend to get kind of nervous before those follow-up appointments. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you. Let us know when your results come back!

I had a TAH/BSO because of an ovarian mass and elevated ca125, but I didnt have ovarian cancer, BUT, on the path report they had found endocervical adenocarcinoma. So, in other words, they found it after the hyst. I ended up going thru chemo (Cisplatin) and radiation, due to the fact that they found it after the hyst. I did not have a radical Hyst, also due to the fact that they found the cancer post hyst. I have a follow up appointment on March 10, and I am scared that it will come back. I understand that is normal, but still, waiting is hard. I had also asked what stage I would be considered and the Dr said that I would probably be considered a stage 2.

I will be ing for great report for the both of us.

's for you

I did call my mother because i was nervous she was there for the surgery and the doctor said he didnt see anything and even took out extra tissue on the vaginal wall and i was clear

i think i am over reacting because the pap is so near and i dont want to go through all this again

thanks for your response

Hi, Brenda!

In response to your question, we knew about the vaginal dysplasia before the hysterectomy. When I had my LEEP in Jan 2001 I asked the doctor to repair a chronic vaginal tear I had had for a couple of years. The biopsy report from that came back as carcinoma-in-situ, so when they did the TAH they also resected more of the vaginal wall.

You'll feel so much better after your follow-up exam!
