A doctor can shake up your world by announcing that on a scale of zero to cancer you’re a one, then dismiss the risk a week later by telling you that your biopsies had no significant abnormalities.
At least that’s the end result of my biopsies.
No significant abnormalities.
Why in the world am I a “one” then?
The end result of all my abstinence, doctor’s visits and biopsies is that I am fine and all I need to do to stay healthy is have regular PAP smears.
So, I’m healthy BUT I have a predisposition for cervical cancer?
Nothing wrong with my cervix EXCEPT it’s a misbehaving a little?
Friends have come out of the woodwork to share their own cancer scares and it’s been very comforting to talk to women who have gone through what I’ve been through.
The support has been amazing and it’s nice to know that there are options out there besides the ones espoused by modern medicine which can help me.
All this is to say that I am fine.
Cancer scare is over for now.
My naughty cervix is may be skirting the boundaries of what’s allowable for a cervix – to just sit there, take a pounding, and occasionally pass a baby through it – but it’s still within healthy limits.
Nice to know.
