Last Wednesday I had cryo-surgery for my moderal cervical dysplasia. Now I have to wait 4 months for my follow-up. Does anyone know what the chances, percentages that the abnormal cells will come back??? I've been planning on moving and going to school and I know when I switch insurance I won't be covered for 12 months for this pre-existing condition. So, if the cryo is pretty effective, then I think I'm going to go ahead and move and hold out for 12 months........... what are the chances?? and are the results of cryo adequate for the most part?

thank you tons!!

I'm concerned about that as well. I think it all depends on your immune system and if you’re a smoker. Everybody is different so it all depends on how you treat your body.
[QUOTE=Verucah]I had my cryo July 13. My Doc is having me back in 3 months. ( I had mild/moderate) I was told it had a cure rate of about 85%. I know 2 people who had it. One was cured in one treatment. The other took 2 treatments.[/QUOTE]


did the doctor just perform another cryo the second time?? I wonder if I go ahead and move if it is ok to wait and have the cryo until my insurance will cover it, meaning if my abnormal cells are still there? this is stressing me out and is really messing up my plans with school and moving. =(
I don't have the HPV virus, so what else could have caused the dysplasia?

thanks for the info! I really appreciate it.
[QUOTE=MissK]Alex~ thanks for your story! ;)
I'm desperately scared that it will come back. I don't know why this freaks me out so much, but it does. And, yes, it's a chance we take when we move or switch insurance. But at least my new insurance will start to cover it after one year and I'm not denied all together. I'm going to check into the health clinics in my new state as soon as I move just in case I need to go through the cryo procedure again or what not.

Good luck to you!!
oh and what would be the best folic acid supplement for me to take?? any suggestions?

thanks again![/QUOTE]

Hi, the folic acid i am taking is the GNC store one, as are all my vitamins, but I think any brand would be good. The main thing is, make sure you get a natural one. I'm not exactly sure what it means but i would assume it means its all drawn from natural sources, but in any case, my doc just said that any natural vitamins are better because they get absorbed better. It should say on the box "natural" or from vegetable sources or something of the sort. The doses i am taking are as follows, and i found these in a health book: folic acid (400 micrograms), beta carotene (50 000 IU), vitamin E (100 IU), vitamin C (500 miligrams).
Good luck, God bless,
Alex :)
