On 2/20 after an abnormal pap and colposcopy, I was diagnosed with cervical adenocarcinoma and immediately referred by my GYN to an oncologist the same day. My GYN stated that I would need a hysterectomy with the possibilty of additional treatments.
I went within minutes of hearing this diagnosis to the oncologists office and after a pelvic exam and review of my pap and colposcopy results he scheduled outpatient surgery on 2/26 for D&C and LEEP procedures. On 3/4 my oncologist called to report both the Ectocervix and Endocervix cone biopsies had NO malignancies identified. HOWEVER a specialist is now assigned to review ALL of my slides and further research needs to be done. Needless to say, the call was short...
In order to obtain up to date records, I requested/picked up my pathology results + blood work. On my pathology report a diagnosis of Mild Chronic Cervicitis was diagnosed for Ectocervix and for Endocervix, Mild Chronic Cervicitis and Microglandular Hyperplasia was diagnosed. This diagnosis was not mentioned the day of my call with the oncologist, however I am glad to have it in black and white in order to research and ask questions when he follows up in approx. a week after research is complete. A day at a time is all I need to do, I have a BIG BEAUTIFUL LIFE to live no matter what is going on!
