Waiting and worried....

Hi all,

I was diagnosed with high risk HPV in March of this year. I get paps every three months. Three months ago I had a scare because they told me there were low-grade cell changes (when I was first diagnosed, they told me I had HPV but my cells were normal). They had to do a colposcopy again, and they told me my cells were actually normal, but they only appeared abnormal because I had a yeast infection. I just went for my latest pap, and I again told my doc I felt as though I had symptoms of a yeast infection. I'm worried that the infection may alter the results again, and I'll need yet another colposcopy. The doctor told me they won't, but I don't know what to believe. Everytime I go for a pap or to get results, someone different is treating me. It's ridiculous. And this latest physician's asst who did my pap made it seem like HPV is not a big deal. She dismissed my worries, because I guess I was asking a lot of questions. I just am terrified i'll get bad news when I get my results. I know I should think positive, but I'm just worried. I get my results Dec 30 and I know I'll be on pins and needles until then. This HPV diagnosis has really scared me and I feel like I have no one to talk to. I know HPV is common, but I feel alone.

I just hope it'll all be ok. Thanks for reading.

Re: Waiting and worried....

You can always call the doctor's office to ask if the results are in after about 5 working day. They usually have the results then. It doesn't hurt to ask.
