I am so glad I found this site. I’ve been reading lots of posts and feel very warmed by everyone’s support to each other.
I am 29 years old and from Australia. I had an abnormal pap 4 weeks ago with HSIL. I have never had an abnormal pap.
I then had a colposcopy and biopsy. The biopsy came back has high grade precancerous cells. But the gyn onco was not convinced and today I went to hospital and underwent GA to have another colposcopy and wedge biopsy.
The oncologist will not say if it’s cancer but is basically saying ‘it is’. He keeps saying it ‘looks nasty’ and that he is ‘highly suspicious’. He is already talking getting an MRI done. He said he cannot say it is cancer until he gets the pathology results but he thinks it is.
My results will be in til next Wednesday. So I am very scared.
And I am also 16 weeks pregnant which makes this very scary. It is my first pregnancy and I hope to keep the baby. Baby was fine today under GA.
Because I am pregnant I think that is why they are rushing everything for me because he said that the 2nd trimester is the safest time for anything to happen.
He only said one thing of encouragement which is that he thought it had not spread from what he could see.
He also said that it looks ‘early’ but also said there is a 3cm section of abnormal looking cervix. Which sounds large to me. He did say that not all of the 3cm could be cancerous so I am banking on that.
I am absolutely terrified. My mum and boyfriend have not left my side.
Has anyone ever experienced this?
I feel so sad but I want to be positive.
