am i doing the right thing?

Hi everyone,
This is my first time to post here and I hope some of you can help me with this question. I had a tah/bso on 4-22-02, then a check-up 6 weeks later. I didn't go back (doctors orders), for 11 months till March. Had a pap, then got a call from her nurse saying it showed mild dysplasia and to come in for a colposcopy. Which I did, she did a biopsy, then they called me back saying it was still positive. She wants me to use premerin .625 vaginally, twice a week and then repeat the pap in July. Should I be worried? I know you all have much more serious concerns and I apologize if this seems trivial, but I don't want to find out in July that I shouldn't have waited. My doctor did say that it is unusual to have a bad pap after a hyst. Thanks for listening, and my best to all of you.

Hi Roni,

It is the usual practice to wait 3 months between procedures to be sure the tissue is healed (from the colposcopy). Did you have your hyst because of a pre-cancer condition?

Hi EM,
Thanks for answering me. I had my hyst because of heavy bleeding and clots, plus my gyn couldn't get into my uterus with a d&c to do a biopsy. So I opted to do the hyst. I have never had children and like I read on here somewhere it's like your uterus is tied to your vocal cords!!! I'm not taking hormones either, and I have heard the dysplasia could be from lack of estrogen. Thanks again, and all the best to you.
