Wow pickles, you sound like you have gone through what I'm going through. You are so well informed & you go girl, you have really helpted me out. You have been sooooooooo helpful, you just won't imagine. Is your recovery going well? My cone is going to be done on Jul 14th & surgery 2 days later on the 16th. Just found out last year that I also have HPV. What a mess. Hope you are having a good recovery. God Bless & my prayers are with you.
