Come biopsy, subsequent pregnancy *preggo mentioned*

Mods feel free to move me If need be

So we just found out we are preggo, I have a serious cone biopsy with d&c last winter (2/2012) for stage 1 cervical cancer. We are home birthing family but I am questioning if I should call my dr and go see the ob who did the surgery to make sure all looks okay and when I should do that. Any in sight would rock thanks

That's what I'm thinking too. Better safe than sorry in that situation, KWIM? Once you know how everything looks, then you can go from there.

I would definitely see a doctor, I would imagine your midwife would want an MD as backup in this case. Better safe than sorry.

Congratulations!!!

Re: Come biopsy, subsequent pregnancy *preggo mentioned*

I had LEEP and a cone, with my first preg I had a suture placed in my cervix to keep what I got left closed. 2nd time they did weekly measurements after 14 weeks or so. I have an "irritable" uterus and had contractions early with both. I also had to sustain from sex.

So soon after the cone and D&C I would seek advice on the cervical cerclage or weekly monitoring. But remember if it starts to open you MAY have time to THEN do the cerclage or you may be too late.

Some docs only do them after many miscarriages. There used to be a forum dedicated to the subject, many mothers have losses after their cervical cancer treatment.

Did they not explain this to you? They told me all this although at the time, you know I wasn't having kids LOL

If you have to get the suture or not, you should still be able to birth at home. It can either be you dilate very quick or some women claim they have had to have a section due to lack of dilation as the cervix is rather annoyed and closes up and refuses to open.

They remove at 37 weeks and then your body does whatever it's going to do, or you get the 36+ mark, they stop the checking and your body does whatever it's going to do. Although most of the women are happy when they get past 34/35 weeks since many end up on bed rest

Thanks, I certainly don't have an irritable uterus I've baked three babies so far. They said 6 months, at my last appt in November I was told everything looked amazing and healing and regeneration like mine is rarely seen, that pregnancy should be a non issue but I guess we shall see

every preg is different. I'd do some research. I forgot the key times for cervical measurements. I know there is a new tool too vs using ultrasound measuring.

Not fool proof though, some folks go for a scan and are long closed and perfect and that night are 5cms and past the point of no return.

I had opening in the internal OS but it got to a point and stopped.

My best friend had the same treatment/diagnosis but she hadn't had any children yet. She birthed her first baby at home with midwives 10 days late. I would see your mw and if she feels you need ob care I'm sure she'll recommend it.
