Hang in there, Kim. I have had many abnormal paps, two colposcopies, two sets of biopsies and one LEEP procedure under general anesthesia. As scared as I would get, each time it turned out to be something less than cancer. The first time the results came back and it was CIN II, moderate displaysia, so they had to do a LEEP procedure which is essentially scraping off a full layer of my cervix so they can get all the abnormal cells. The second time the results came back as CIN I and for that, they said the best course of action is just "watch and wait", so I'll be going back in for another PAP in 3 months. It's nerve-wracking for sure but I try not to work myself up too much over it. If we take ourselves in to be regularly tested, don't miss appointments and take care of our bodies by eating right and exercising, I truly believe we have a better change of avoiding cancer, even if we have risk factors. Let us know how the results turn out and in the meantime, try to focus your energy on something positive! : )

thankyou deannegirl I am scared but am trying to stay positive . I regularly have papsmears the papsmear was clear but the nurse found lesion doctor yesterday after colposcopy said it was a polyp she seen but when he put painted my cervix with the vinegar mixture that is when he found it turned a colour that was not normal so he took biopsy. I do not drink or smoke. I am on diet I am severly overweight . due to genetics I have thyroid problems. gained weight with prednisone am trying to lose weight have trouble with exercise due to pain but will get back into pool soon. doctor says cannot get into pool for 2 weeks because of colposcopy. I am emotional eater so I am struggling so I am using replacement shakes and soups and bars to lose weight in case I need hysterectomy because they will not operate at my current size. thankyou for caring. kim

Hi Kim,

I can imagine how bad it is, to have to wait so long for the result, but try not to worry to much, until you know for sure.
I know, its easier said than done.
Crossing my fingers for you.
