I am confused about this. I had the Radical Hysterectomy to remove all precancerous cells. Less than a year now, and they are back. I have already had two bad PAPs and am now scheduled for a colposcopy with the doctor that performed my hysterectomy. I don't feel that I have been well informed by my treatment team, on this matter. I don't know where they are "seeing" the cells. What do I have left for the cells to grow on, since having my "girly" parts removed? What are they taking the PAP samples from? What organ? I really don't know. Can you answer this for me? Thank you...View Thread
Wow, thank you so much everybody for all of your help. I had the colpo and my gyn says I have low grade squamous cells that we'll have to keep an eye on. So now I am seeing him again in November for another look. Now, he gave me an Estrogen cream to start using 6 weeks prior to this Nov. appt. What is the deal with that?
Wellnessmom4, I had no idea there was an internal/external colpo. Now, I'm really confused. Thanks. Ha Ha. I don't know how to answer you on this. I'll have to ask my gyn what he has been doing...View Thread
