I am 45 yrs old. I had my first abnormal PAP smear last year. I had a colposcopy followed by a LEEP in 12/09. I had my first PAP since having the LEEP and I was told the results were that atypical cells were found. So next I had a vaginal ultrasound which found a thickened endometrium. I just had a D&C a few days ago and am awaiting the pathology results.
I received my pre and post operative diagnosis and I am trying to make sense of them. Here's what I have so far:
Your pre and post operative results are typically the same. What you are reading are the results of past pathology.
You really need to await the pathology report from the D&C. This report should really only take one week to be sent back to the doctor.
Once you get this report, you probably should consult a gyn oncologist. This type of doctor really handles multiple abnormal gyn pathology results.
I notice that you live in Framingham, did you have your surgery at Metro West? You might want to look into seeing a gyn oncologist doctor at the Brigham or St Elizabeth's. I have had good luck at St Elizabeth's. I also think that Newton Wellsley has a special gyn oncology clinic.
Let me know how you are doing.
I think that report is considered a negative report--it mentions that there is no atypical/complex hyperplasia. I am not familiar with squamous metaplasia, but it does mention some inflammation (active cervicitis) without any dysplasia. The dysplasia is what you do not want because that is considered the pre-cancer tissue.
Have you spoken with your doctor about the report and was it explained to you? Are they going to treat your active cervicitis?
Let me how you are doing.
