Having my 3rd leep in 10 years for recurring hsil cervical polyps (1st leep was for mild). Should i be concerned? Should i look into a hysterectomy?

Surgical Risk?: In general, hysterectomy is much more invasive and puts a patient at significantly greater risk than a leep. Further, hysterectomy should only be used when a leep is insufficient, i.e. Positive margins. I do understand the frustration/anxiety entailed by recurrent hsil though -- hysterectomy may be reasonable if your gyn can perform a lower risk procedure, like a laparoscopic or vaginal surgery. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy and polyp removed 3days ago.  I have had thick brown vaginal discharge since. Is this normal.

No: Colonoscopy has nothing to do with vaginal situations. If no tumor was detected perforating anterior wall of rectum into vagina, which I suspect is not the case, then vaginal discharge is uterine in origin. Blood that remains in utero and passes to the vagina will decompose and appear as a brown discharge. One must examine the uterus by ultrasound to see what the endometrial lining is like. ...Read more

OB GYN Consult: You need to talk to a OB GYN MD who is aware of ALL of your GYN issues to give you the best answer. Future childbearing abilities are also a source of consideration. Remember that hysterectomy has complications that can be life threatening to which you have to balance risk versus benefit. ...Read more
