Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

My daughter discovered she had mild displasia at 17 and they did the colposcopy. Then they discoverd more cells and they were moderate so a LEEP was done. She is 18 now and we've had 3 biopsies. 2 copolscopies, the LEEP, a laser ablation and now he discovered the cells returned after the ablation and wants to freeze her cervix. At 18 we are terrified for her fertility but she has been adament since she was a young teen that she NEVER wanted kids but who knows if she will meet Mr wonderful and change her mind because I fear with all they have done,she may not be able to carry or concieve. Of course,right now,my biggest fear is keeping the cells from becoming cancerous. I'm waiting and praying for the day when she goes 6 months with no return in cells. So far for 2 years this has not happened. We will have the freezing done in January or Feb and they hope this will solve the issue. the Dr is becoming frustrated. He delivered her into this world 18 yrs ago and this is become an obsession with him to cure of of this. I feel safe with him. He doesn't want to continue biopsying her anymore and is very upset at her pain when he has too. He prescribes her pain relief and even wrote notes when her graduation was in danger because of missed days from school. He has been wonderful and with us all the way.
callie, I believe the freezing is the least agressive treatment, so im not sure why they would do this? unless the recurrance is mild...

are all her margins clear after the leep etc - are they sure they are getting everything when they do the procedures? Ablation is not good b/c you cant take the cells and look at it in the lab. but laser cone can do this, so maybe consider this. the cone is usually more precise, especially the cold knife.
