Becoming Nervous and Anxious

I have my 4 Month Pap next month. I had the Leep April of 2007, then 6 mponth check up, hpv and pap came back fine, went back in April for another 6 month check up, pap came back with ACSUS, and positive for high risk HPV. So here I am waiting for August to get here. I am so worried that it will come back with cancer and that really scares me since I am a single mom with a wonderful 5 year old son. I have done good not thinking about it but now since it is getting closer mymind is wondering and my nerves are getting the best of me..

Has anyone gont through the samething, if so what was the outcome. Thank god for this board....

Re: Becoming Nervous and Anxious

Hi,

I know how you're feeling. I had laser surgery for cervical carcinoma in situ in May of 2007, had a normal Pap three months later, another normal Pap three months after that one, and am now scheduled for a Pap in two weeks (this one will be nine months since my last one, the longest I've gone without a Pap since I was diagnosed with dysplasia in 2005.) The thing that is making me most nervous is that I've found several small, hard vaginal lumps which have me worried.

All we can do is keep our fingers crossed and pray. Hang in there and good luck. You're not alone!

Re: Becoming Nervous and Anxious

ajfurr, I totally understand your worry! Please know that the pap is just to keep a close eye on things. Also, know that the pap can't diagnose cancer. All it does is screen for abnormal cells. There is a very good likelihood that the LEEP got all of the bad cells and the doctors are just checking on things. When is your appointment?

Re: Becoming Nervous and Anxious

All the very best to you. You know...the one thing about this situation is that no matter how many NORMALS I get from here on out, I feel that from now on I will always be on edge at the time of PAPS. It used to be, I wouldn't even think about or look for the card in the mail indicating NORMAL. I suppose I just took it for granted. I'll never have that sense of calm again after a PAP. I guess I just have to accept that. So I totally understand your nervousness. Here's sending you positive vibes, NORMAL results and a peaceful wait until the next time.

Take care.

Re: Becoming Nervous and Anxious

My appointment is scheduled for Aug. 11th. I pray and pray that everything comes back fine. I am just terrified that this is going to keep going on for a long time. Thanks for all your advice. Has anyone had a pap come back wit ASCUS and High Risk HPV and then gone back for another pap and it be normal?

WHAT IS ASCUS? IV'E NEVER HEARD OF THAT. WE CAN'T PREDICT THE FUTURE. JUST KNOW THAT WHATEVER THE RESULTS ARE THEN IT CAN BE TREATED.
