I went in early June for a pap where they tested me for HVP (first time for being tested for HVP) as well. Received call from my dr 2 weeks later telling me my pap came back abnormal (LGSIL) and I tested positive for HPV16. had colposcopy done on Monday. Dr told me I would have results today (Wednesday). Called first thing this morning to see if results were in, but they were not yet. Nurse sounded surprised that I would have them back so early. guess I won't be hearing back yet today as office is closed.
My concern is this... My grandma had cervical cancer in her early 20's and had a complete hysterectomy. She also had skin cancer and died from pancreatic cancer at 76. My sis had precancerous cells in her early 20's as well where they froze the cells off and she has not had any reoccurance since. I am 44 And healthy. This was my first abnormal pap, ever. It has been 3 years since my last pap because my then husband had a vasectomy. I left him 15 months ago and had to go back on birth control. In 26 years, I have only gone without birth control for about 3 years, following husband's vas.
I started smoking 15 months ago, when I left my x. Up till then, only smoked on occasion. Before the procedure started, I told my dr about my sis and he showed me what would be used to remove the abnormal cells, if needed. Once he started looking at the cervix, he told me there was too much on the cervix to do the procedure he told me about earlier. I can only imagine how much is there. This makes me quite nervous.
I just feel like the odds are stacked up against me at this point. Trying to keep a positive attitude is very difficult. I imagine the worst, but am hoping for the best possible results. Sorry if this is difficult to read. Having a hard time putting my thoughts down right now.
Just venting. Thanks for listening!
