Hello. After receiving an "abnormal pap" letter from her doctor's office a few weeks ago, my wife was brought in for a colposcopy. At that appointment the specialist also took a biopsy sample. That was 8 days ago. After the colpo/biop, the specialist told my wife to come back in in a month's time to "discuss the results." Of course the overwhelming odds are that her "abnormalities" are NOT cancer, but for some reason I'm VERY worried. I am naturally a worrying kind of person, and I LOATHE waiting games like this one. Every day I fear my wife is going to receive a call from her doc to come in -- i.e., a "cancer call." But it's been over a week now since the colpo...we're on day 8, and NO CALL.
My wife has no symptoms at all. No discharge, no bleeding, nothing like that. And the odds of c-cancer are apparently quite low, something like 1,450 cases of c-cancer every year in Canada, out of 4,000,000 paps and 325,000 abnormal paps.
Should I feel encouraged that 8 days have gone by without a call? If it were something serious, would she not have received a call from her doc within the first week? I know it's not always the case, but what does everyone think of this? Is my beloved probably going to be fine?
