Re: Endometrial cells in pap test

I asked the doctor the same question you have, why not a biopsy? He said because of her age and heart, he thinks it will be less stressful for her to be put into "twilight" sleep and have a D&C which will get more cells to sample, than have her fully awake and undergo a "painful procedure" (his words). He said she is very skiddish even about having the Pap test (and she is) and he thinks she will not tolerate the biopsy well.

The only thing I can come up with according to her pap results is cancer.

So sorry to hear about your diagnosis. What kind of surgery are you going to have, open abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy? I hope all goes well with you.
