Many women have been asking for my advice with regards to how to deal with an abnormal PAP or what to do if you think something is "wrong". My immediate answer is GO TO A GYNECOLOGICAL ONCOLOGIST! Do not pass go, do not go to a second OBGYN, do not go to your GP go to the specialist. Why do I say this? Here is why:
I was misdiagnosed by two OBGYN's and a GP. I had countless pelvic exams, PAPs, biopsys, ultra sounds etc...I was told by ALL my doctors nothing was wrong. When I went to the ER and the CT scan showed a large mass that was most likely a tumor my OBGYN continued to mistreat me. They put me on antibiotics that made me deathly ill & ordered horribly painful and useless ultra sounds. Because my CT showed what looked like a tumor the doctors were required to call in a gynecological oncologist. This man came into my hospital room, propped me up on a bed pan and did a pelvic exam right there. Without hesitation he said: "STAGE 3B CERVICAL CANCER". Just like that folks!!
Don't waste your time and put your life in harms way. Do it the right way the first time!
