First I want to say this is an excellent forum and I have learned a lot here. Thanks to all of you for that.
Second, I need everyone's input/opinion on something please. Approximately 2 plus years ago I had a hem'ectomy. Tissue from hemmy was sent to lab and came back with severe dysplasia, doc said level before "full blown cancer." At first she wante me to have the are re-excised, but it was so painful I asked to find out from the lab if there were clear margins first. She called me back later the next day and said there were clear margins so I did not have to have it re-excised after all, but wanted to check me every three months. I started to do this but lost my job and then my health insurance.
It's been over two years since I had that area checked and I'm always so worried the dysplasia (AINS I think she said highest grade)will come back and I'll get anal cancer without knowing it.
I have no clinic to go to,no doctor I can see. I am most always const. and still have hemmys plus tags. Is there anything I can look for on my own that may help me determine if something is up? Other than bleeding ? I have had zero bleeding, some pain and vague itching on occasion. I attribute this to the ongoing hemmys. What does everyone think about this? What would you do in my situation? I worry constantly about this. Am I worrying unnecessarily? Please advise, anything would be helpful at this point. BTW I am a bc survivor two plus years .
Thank you so much.
