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! : )
