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....

Keep us posted on what you decide! You know your body best! You are your own health advocate! you go girl!
