Re: lab refuses records; and the LSIL rollercoaster

I also recently had my first abnormal pap. My pap came back 3 months ago as LGSIL. I went in a month ago for a colpo/ punch biopsy. That came back as CIN III/ CIS (Carcinoma in-situ) although my ECC came back benign. My gyn wanted to schedule a cold knife cone biopsy for two weeks later.

The story can get much longer, but basically, there was NO communication between my doctor and I. After I finally got a nurse on the phone, I asked questions for 30 minutes. She then said "would you like to schedule a consult with the doctor before your surgery?" I eagerly said "yes". After sitting with her in her office for about an hour she got anxious to go home and scheduled my CKC with less than 24 hours to go.

I scheduled with another Dr and had colpo done with her (without biopsy) and scheduled a CKC with her for less than a week later. It has now been less than a week since I had my CKC. My doctor called me with the results yesterday. She got clear margins (i.e., it looks like she got all of the abnormal cells) and it turns out I was a CIN II, not CIN III.

My point is, ..yes, get the colpo. A pap is only 80% accurate and you'd rather be safe than sorry. I was told that I could have had abnormal changes for years without detection on the pap simply because the wrong area was smeared. With a colpo, the doctor can actually see where the changes are.

Re: lab refuses records; and the LSIL rollercoaster

If you are in the United States then you have every right to get copies of any of your medical records. They are YOUR records. I get copies of everything I have ever had done. I would call back to that lab or hosp. and ask to speak with a supervisor in the records dept.

I recently had (2) MRIs done, I called the hospital the next morning and they said I could come and pick up the reports. Later that afternoon my PCP called to inform me of my MRI results and I alrady had the copies.

Re: lab refuses records; and the LSIL rollercoaster

I have always had to get copies from the doctor. If your doctor office is refusing to release the report to you, I would take it up with the doc himself. I had one doctor refuse to request a report for me. I went to another doctor and got him to request it. I was told by one doctor I interviewed to be my family doctor that patients having their records didn't serve any purpose and only made patients not trust the doctor. Bull! talk about a god complex! Obviously I found a different doctor.
