Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board


Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Hi Ladies~
I have just been through a very quick cancer journey: I had an abnormal pap of the glandular cell type in Feb. and was called back in for colposcopy, scraping of cervical canal and endometrial biopsy done in Dr's office with no anesthetic. The colposcopy and canal scraping was uncomfortable, but tolerable. The endometrial biopsy on the other hand was excruciating as she had a tough time getting up there. These results came back as Adenocarcinoma In Situ and I was referred to a Gynecologic Oncologist. She scheduled me for a cone biopsy of the cervix on March 26th, done in the OR under general anesthesia, which came back as Adenocarcinoma In Situ. This procedure was not bad at all, though the bleeding was extensive and required a cervical packing. I left post op very early and did'nt require much in the way of pain meds. I was back to my normal self the next day with nothing more than period cramps. Unfortunately, the margins were not clear.
Although I am 44, I wanted another child and had been trying for just 3 months. I have a 3 year old and my pregnancy was perfect, so I didn't think I would encounter any problems. So,obviously, this news was hard to swallow.
I opted for another larger scale cone biopsy on May 5th. I didn't realize how much more painful this one would be. I was in post op much longer and required much more pain medication. The results showed extensive Adenocarcinoma in Situ. I considered a trachelectomy, but my age and the fact that at this point I really didn't have much of a cervix remaining, left little hopes for carrying my own child (even with an abdominal cerclage) or even conceiving, for that matter. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy on May 7th, a little over a week ago. I was in ALOT of pain after they took me off of the morphine drip and put me on vicodine. My first few days at home were not any better. On the fourth day I woke up feeling MUCH, MUCH better and I am glad to have this all behind me. My advise for any of you dealing with the same type of thing is to get a second opinion and to trust your doctor. The internet can be very confusing. Write down all of your questions as they come to you and take them in to your Dr. Do not allow your appt to end until you are completely satisfied. If I can be of help to anyone whose going through their own cancer journey, please let me know.
All the best:Leigh
