    Post hysterectomy overies with HPV
    An_267862 posted:
    I am 56,post menopausal and have HPV. Several years ago I had a procedure where the froze some dysphasia areas from my cervix. After that I lost my insurance for several years and didn't get checked. So when I did go back for a pap I once again had " high grade dysphasia" on my cervix. I had my cervix removed and the dr. did a D&C which showed the "precancerous" cells were in my uterus. 3 days ago I had a hysterectomy where the Dr. removed my uterus and tubes but she said leaving my overies would reduce my risk of developing heart desease. My dr said the will send my uterus and tubes to a lab for testing to determine what should be the next course of action. My question is, going forward, how will they test if the remaining overies for cancer? My dr says they will be able to feel during exams but she also said everything so far is only at a cellular level. By my estimation I would have to have full blown cancer of the overies for a dr to feel it during an exam. Is this the normal course of action? At this point I feel like my overies are ticking time bombs.
