Hi.

I had a cold knife cone done august 25th.
My pap came back HSIL.
My colp came back HSIL. Severe dysplasia.
My endocervical scraping came back benign.
I had my cone done.....I went to the hospital for general anesthesia, the whole process took about an hour.....I went home about noon. I did not react well with anesthsia so I was sickly for awhile. Procedure caused discomfort for about a week or so....moderate bleeding.....mild discharge black, and nearer the two week end, foul odor....which cleared up in a few days...
I was told the cone was more effective than the leep. They could see further up into the canal, and take more areas off the cervix and take margins of good tissues also....

I also worried very much about if the cone would show cancer...
My cone came back with CIN 2 and CIN 3 (precancerous not cancerous insitu) and the cervical canal was negative....

So, the cone completely corresponded with the initil pap and colp.

I say dont worry, you'll do fine....I'm a big baby, if I can do it I know you can! ;)

All I do know is repeat paps in 6 monthes, but I opted to go back in 3 or 4 just to make sure.

I'm 43.

Good luck, you'll do fine.....
skf33,
If you don't mind me asking, why did yur md decide to do cold knife if your endocervical canal was benign. I thought they only do a cone if the canal was involved.

~~ Hi bonnie. My md said he was doing what is his protocol when a patient comes back with severe dysplasia, HSIL, CIN 2/3.....he prefers a cone over a leep because it offers more chance to check more tissues, and more chance to get more tissues (including good ones) for pathology...
He also stressed that cold cone is not just for diagnosis, its used for treatment....in most cases he removes the abnormal cells, and if the path comes back okay (which mine did) he follows up with smears or colps, until a number is satisfactory. To leave your cervix covered with high grade pre cancerous cells is only asking for the inevitable to happen.....progression...
Removal of the cells (cone) is his treatment of choice when a hysterectomy is NOT warranted. Besides, most insurances will NOT pay for a hysterectomy unless its completed warranted and they prefer you follow the md's plan.
I for one, was glad to have the cone....
I just wanted the cells off....take them out, get them out....
IF, they come back I believe we will opt for a hysterectomy...

Thanks.
