I am 21 years old and I just had my first pap smear two months ago after having abnormal bleeding after sex. My results came back as "HISL" and I was referred to a gynocologist who performed a poke biopsy and determined I needed to have a cone biopsy done. The Dr took about a quater size chunk of my cervix out and the margins were clear, but it showed that I had adenocarcinoma in situ. They did a swab after removing the cone and found more abnormal cells, so I have a skip leasion. I was told I need a hysterectomy due to the fact that the adendocarcinoma was present, and I am very worried and anxious about what to expect.
I have not had kids and I have always expected to have kids at a later age. The emotions have been very hard to deal with in this whole process and my heart feels broken. Could I have a Trachelectomy (the entire cervix and upper portion of the vagina is removed and the base of the uterus is banded and stiched back onto the vagina) for now, so I could still have the option to have kids? has anyone had this procedure done or gone through something similar? And has anyone gone through this at such a young age?
Any input or words of wisdom would be very appriciated!
