Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the boards for a while and have really appreciated being able to read about other people's experiences. It helps to know you are not alone . . .

Tomorrow I'm going in for my second LEEP. I had one almost exactly 3 years ago to get rid of a squamous intraepithelial lesion, and everything was well and good. I followed-up with paps every 3 months, then every 6 months, and I always got a clean bill of health until last month . . . Turns out that this time its adenocarcinoma in situ! Just my luck I get the variety pack of pre-cancer!

I am 29 years old and have been married for 3-1/2 years. My husband and I are not sure if we want kids, and we know we are not ready for them right now, but I am definitely worried that when they get in there things will be worse and we'll need to follow up with a more serious procedure, and then having kids won't be an option. I try to stay as positive as possible, but it is hard to not let those nagging thoughts creep into your brain!

I am very lucky that I have a rock star gynological oncologist! She actually made big news several years ago when she busted a crooked pharmacist who was literally watering down chemo drugs and skimming money off the operation. Very cool lady!

Anyway, it is just a few minutes before midnight, which makes me think I need a piece of chocolate before my "no food or water after midnight" cut-off! If anyone has some extra prayers or positive thoughts in their back pocket, I would appreciate them sent to KC tomorrow morning!
