So, there have been some arguments about who was kicking off today’s festivities. I realised I haven’t OP’d in a while, so here we go.
For those of you who haven’t been following along, the last month has been a real roller-coaster for me. I got a “severely abnormal” pap smear result back in mid-November and since then have been through all kinds of mick-muckery while the doctors try to figure out exactly what it is and how bad - colposcopy, hysteroscopy, D&C (dilatation and curettage, for those who care to know), punch biopsies, MRIs of my pelvis and abdomen (including contrast dye).
The (hopefully final) answer is that I have doged the proverbial bullet. I don’t have cancer; I have the final stage of weirdndess that precedes cancer. So yesterday, I had another trip to the OR for colposcopy, another D&C and a large loop excision to carve out most of my cervical canal. My gynaecologist is very hopeful that this will be enough and I am hopeful that I can make it through the week without someone else jabbing me with a neeble or an IV cannula. Histopathology results will be back early next week, so let’s all keep our fingers crossed!
Oky-doky - hijack away!!!
