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......
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.
