I just learned that my cervix & part of my upper vagina are covered with HGSIL (high grade dysplasia). My doctor feels confident that I don't have cancer, but wants to do a hysterectomy to eradicate the dysplasia. I felt great after I left the appointment yesterday, thinking my biopsy report will be okay. After reading more about it, however, I'm terrified to get the results.
I didn't really have any symtoms - I had some spotting between periods for a few months, but it was always during ovulation. Otherwise, no 'real' symptoms. I didn't spot after my Pap Smear. In fact, I haven't bled from the biopsy (2 punch biopsies taken during the colposcopy).
If I didn't experience pain & bleeding, would that be a 'good' sign? I'm not really cramping from the procedure, either. What would be a normal reaction? If I have cancer, would I be bleeding, or feeling pain? He didn't notice anything abnormal, like vascular growths or polyps. I want to trust my doctor - he seems confident and competent.
