I am 26 years old and I found out during a recent pap 5 years ago when my oldest daughter was just 5 months old that I had precancerous cells. I was totally freaked out thinking the worst of course. I had cryosurgery and was told to come back in 3 months. After the pap then it was still there, I had cryo again and still that did not help. After leaving it alone for a while I went back to the doctor to find out that I was pregnant with our second child. naturally I was worried that something would be wrong but the pap came back fine. After my 6 week checkup I went to the doctor to get another pap and was told that the dysplasia had progressed to high grade dysplasia CINII and that a LEEP was recommended. I did that on Feb. 25th and the results of that came back that I had CINIII high grade squamous lesions (carcinoma in situ) with glandular involvement. My doctor now recommended that I have a hysterectomy since I have 2 wonderful children. She told me that I should think about it for 2 months and then decide if I want to have any more children. If I do, I should get pregnant right away and not wait. If not I should schedule the surgery. My husband and I are absolutely grateful for our wonderful children, a girl and a boy. So I am going to have the hysterectomy. I have read all of the stories and have tried to calm myself down hoping to look for some answers in helping me find hope in all of this. My question is can someone please email me with their story of the same thing happening to them? Having to have the hysterectomy and how everything was afterward. My doctor told me that after the hysterectomy everything would be fine and everything would be gone since it is only confined to the cervix. I guess I am looking for some good news. Thank you all so much for any information you might have. I look forward to hearing from you. god bless you all and your families.
