Hope you're all doing OK?
Read this if you're interested in HPV.................
Those Ladies like me that have been diagnosed with CC will know how many medical professionals you will see on your journey! Not one person mentioned HPV to me, not one! In fact I only know about it from this site! So, after my diagnosis & subsequent hysterectomy I was chatting on the phone to my cancer nurse & I mentioned HPV & did I have it? (I've posted this bit before!) & she read through my notes & said nowhere does it say that I'm positive so no, I don't have it......I said but nowhere did it say I was negative??? She assured me that I'd been tested & I was negative..............
On 8.7.15 I had my meeting with my Oncologist who did my hysterectomy & I again brought up HPV. I asked did I have it, to which he replied "yes but so do I & so does the nurse!". So I said have I been tested then & he said no!!! He went on to assure me that it wasnt really anything to worry about etc, ect!!!!
This just wasn't sitting right with me, him just pressuming I had HPV so, I paid to be tested privately & I have the results back today:
HPV 18 NEGATVE
HPV 16 NEGATIVE
HPV 31 33 35 39 45 51 52 56 58 59 66 68 NEGATIVE
Now I know I could of had it & it cleared but surely I should have been tested before he confirmed I DID have HPV when I DON'T!!!!
