This is why you have health insurance...

Up until this year I had not had a pap smear in 8 years. Why, well my first experience was so horrible it scarred me for life- i still shudder to this day when thinking about it.

Two things made me have one this year, a friend having cervical cancer and having her cervix out at the ripe old age of 27 and bezzies promise of yarn (still waiting to win!!)

So I did.

The first one came back with a slight abnormality- no biggie, lets wait 3 months and see what happens.

The second one said it was a little less slight- ok lets make a specialist appointment.
(Pulling some strings) got an appointment for a months time.

Fast forward to today......
The specialist.
There is a problem there. It is a pre-cancer growth. It is NOT cancer. It is what will grow up to be cancer if left untreated.

The surgery (local or general knockout- i choose general) will take place either on the 26/9 or 3/10.

This is why I pay all that money to my private health insurance company.

I hate hospitals and needles and surgery but i will suffer one day in exchange for the rest of my life.

Sorry no knitting content today, the socks are growing and the baby jacket is at the 45% mark.

I'm SO relieved that you made that appt and found out now. Will keep good thoughts coming your way for the surgery.


Who knew Bezzie was such an angel?

So glad it was caught early. Hugs and prayers coming your way.

I'm sorry to hear this news - but am so glad you got it checked out early enough for them to take care of it.

I wish I had enough yarn to give prizes to the people in the "Sh*tty results" catergory. I'm glad that it was minor the way those things go and that they caught it before it became anything really nasty!

I would have gone for general too. Nice that they give you an option!

so glad you were caught early.
