What's your opinion on this?

Hi - I had a leep cone biopsy done on 1/28, today I went for my follow up and my ob-gyn said that my margins are not clear and that they did not remove all of the lesions - which were severe high grade dysplasia - my question is - is it ok to wait and do a pap in 3 mo's or do you think i should get a second opinion?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts. Kristin

Re: What's your opinion on this?

That depends upon whether you truly trust your doctor. His job was to remove the lesion--the entire lesion(s) on the first try. He failed. Anytime I hear a patient state that their provider told them they have "severe high-grade lesion", I can only pressume they are attempting to scare you into " a do-over" or call it a "re-bill".

If the lesion was that "severe" he should have made sure to get clean margins the first time. A "severe" lesion is the easiest to see and therefore remove.

Request a copy of your pap, colp biopsy and leep report. Compare them. IMO I would seek out another opinion if you have any doubts. Good luck.
