Re: Symptoms and pap results AGC/LSIL
With the ECC, they kind of swirl either the brush or the "spoon" type around the circumference of your endocervix. I had AGC and ASCUS on my pap, negative for HPV, and my regular gyn did colposcopy, ECC and endometrial biopsy. They all came back negative. I was still extremely uneasy that something was being missed, so I referred myself to a gyn /onc. He took one look at all of my testing this far, and said we need to get some answers. He will do a CKC and D & C on Wednesday, with a hysterectomy if he feels it is warranted. I liked the aggressiveness, because I am just so uneasy with the whole thing. Go with your gut. Your gut is telling you that you don't trust your gyn/onc. Maybe your gyn can give you a referral to another's gyn/onc? Do some doctor shopping until you find someone who takes your fears seriously, and at least does all of the testing to back up their theories.
Another thing that I found interesting was the gyn/onc told me that the ECC only gets a sample from about 1cm in, and he wanted to do a CKC because it got 5cm in. He also wanted to do a d & c to look at the whole endometrial lining, rather than just a small sample. While I am scared to have a possible hysterectomy, I just want to get rid of the omnipresent thoughts of cancer....
