Re: leep question

I don't know how your doctor can know this. I'm sure your doctor suspects you are VERY low risk for developing cancer, though. That is generally reassuring.

Since you had your colpo on Thursday, I'd suggest you call your doctor's office starting on Tuesday to ask if the pathology reports are in for your colpo (assuming your doctor took some sort of a tissue sample). If the results aren't in, then call once a day until the results are in. That's what I did. Me calling them helped me feel I had some power versus waiting for them to call me.

I hope you are feeling well!

Re: leep question

Re: leep question

I had the LEEP done on Friday and my Dr. said it would have taken me about 12 years to progress to Cancer. I have stage 3. He said it progresses extremely slow. I asked him if the HPV can make another spot pop up somewhere else and he said no he is taking out all the bad stuff. It would have shown on your Coposcopy if you had cancer.

Re: leep question

Thank you Rudy!

and Gig 'em, Gigem27!

It isn't completely accurate that cancer will show on a colposcopy. I had adenocarcinoma Ia1 and never had a bad pap. Nothing showed up on my colposcopy. The colposcopy only looks at the outer cervix. The outer cervix only make up about 30% of the cervix. The remaining cervix can be sampled by an ECC (endocervical curettage).
