    I am a little confused..I had pre cancer cells in 2000 and got the Leep procedure done and everything turned out good. I continued to have a child after. In 2007 I continued to get abnormal paps one after another so my family doctor sent me to a gyno. She said lets just do a partial hysterectomy and bladder repair as my son was 10 pounds, I agreed being divorced and 36 years old..sounded like a good idea. I also have lupus...she also took one of my ovaries as she said it was covered in cysts. I just got myself a new family doctor and he for the first time did a pap test and it came back abnormal. So of course I wanted to go back and see my Gyno and she did a Cysoscopy and it came back with pre cancer cell in December she told me to wait it out and do another pap..now i am just waiting for those results...this is killing me though..very confused..I feel like we are moving backwards not forwards..my mom had cervical cancer when i was born and had a hysterectomy when she was 23...very high volumes of cancer in our family and the doctor knows this. thanks for listening..

    Well, you actually didn't ask a question in your first posting.

    My first question would be did the partial hysterectomy remove the cervix? Often a partial hysterectomy means removal of a portion of the uterus but leaves the cervix...and the cervix is where the cells for the Pap test are taken.

    Did you ask your physician why these abnormal results when you no longer had a cervix?

    yes he said this happens all the time.. I thought maybe it had something to do with my Lupus?

    When do you receive the results? The waiting must be awful! If your doctor says this happens all the time, what was the explanation for abnormal results post hysterectomy? If he has seen this in his practice, then he knows some best/worst case scenarios. I might press my doc a little on this.

    called yesterday and they said they are waiting for the results to come in. This is a new family doctor I did have the hysterectomy years ago..so this is a big shock to me. I thought I had left this all behind me. I do have a mass on my left hip that I am going to see a specialist today for mri results today the ct result showed the mass was pushing on my ciatic nerve which makes me walk with a cane as I fall all the time now..so alot of medical issues to deal with right now..soo stressful which makes my lupus worse..but thanks for all the replys
