I guess you could said I did, but there were a lot of steps I had to go through before getting the hyst.
I was diagnosed with high risk HPV in Dec/Jan of this year. My pap was clear as usual; I've never had a bad one. From there I had to have a colposcopy. The gyn didn't have to do a biopsy of the exocervix because there wasn't anything to biopsy. Just to check, she did an ECC (endocervical curettage). That's where she found the adenocarcinoma in situ. Then I had a cone bipsy. That found the adenocarcinoma Ia1. I scheduled my hyst. The day before the hyst the doctor did a second cone bipsy to determine what kind of hyst she would do (depending on the invasivness of the cancer). Then I had the hyst.
I don't insurance companies will pay for hysts without there being a medically necessary reason. For that reason, the doctors run the test they run like the colpo, biopsies, ECC, cones/LEEPs.
Kell, have you had a colposcopy yet? If not, ask the doctor to perform an ECC while he/she is at it. It hurts, but only for a few minutes. I've always had good paps. Even my colposcopy didn't show anything the doctor needed to biopsy. She found my atypical cells hiding in my endocervical canal.
I've had 2 colposcopies, 2 ECCs (the speciman from the first ECC was lost). The GYN saw something she needed to biopsy during the second Colposcopy. Two pap smears, the first came back ASCUS, the second came back HSIL.
