Wow, I can't keep up with you ladies! *chuckle*.
I went and had my appointment with my Ob. He's a very nice man and very avuncular.
Anyway, the not so fun part. He did a pap smear as I haven't had one in a long time. Came back with an abnormal result. So today I had a colposcopy and a biopsy (he had a close squiz at my cervix and took a chunk to be examined for those that aren't medically minded heh). Apparently you can get weird results from being pregnant but from what I've researched it's unusual to get a CIN3 result based on that.
I had a quick look at the papers he sent with the sample and it had CIN3 written on it.
I won't know for a while what the results of the test are, hopefully they'll call me as soon as they come in. They're aware that I'm going to be away for work for 5 weeks. But the thing that has me exceptionally stressed is that the Ob said that if the results come back as having cancerous cells that once bub is born they'll treat it and I may have to make some very difficult decisions. Ie. Hysterectomy.
He strikes me as someone who wouldn't say that sort of thing unless he was very VERY certain of a bad result based on what he saw. So essentially I'm spending all of my time trying not to panic and reminding myself that pre-cancerous and cancerous are not the same thing. But if I'm completely honest, I'm terrified of ALL of the treatments involved in CIN3 and the very idea of being conscious for any of it sends me into sweats.
Pretty funny for a girl who's having an elective caesarean! Heh.
Hugs Eko!! Hope your results come back ok. Thinking of you x
Keep us posted. CIN3 definitely does not equal hysterectomy; your OBGYN is keeping you informed of some of the nastier scenarios, as he should, but nothing's a given just yet.
Bubs is still well, yes?
Looking good swizzly, congrats!
Eko, sorry to hear you had an abnormal pap smear. I hope you get your results soon. Try to take it one step at a time.
I'm having a negative couple of days where I am having a 'lack of' pregnancy symptoms & questioning if everything is ok. I am just feeling so doubtful and anxious. I know I should be feeling positive but it has taken us 12mths to get here and I worry something bad will happen. Wish I could snap out of it. Sorry for pessimist post just had to get it off my chest!
Oh Eko that's terrible!! Hopefuly it's just a warning as such!
When was ur last Pap smear? I really didn't think it was normal to have one while pregnant?
Had my bloods done today and then a deep tissue massage to correct my bad neck and shoulder from fainting last year, this is the second one and by god they are worse than child birth!
This time was a little different as my jugular was twisted around the muscles in both sides of my neck freaky feeling!!! But now I have full movement back and hopefully no more pressure headaches with full blood flow back! Yay!
Anyways hope you all have a great start to the weekend!!!!!!
I also have a question - are you allowed to take the natural pills to stop constipation like the black mores peritone??
Having a bit of trouble in that department atm!!!!
Morning ladies, I can't wait to join you guys one day hopefully soon, I think this is a great idea, I hope your all going well. Although I did have a suggestion, and it's just a suggestion of course. But I was thinking you ladies should be in the pregnancy and birth section maybe in the due date thread so you can have areas like getting to know you, when your due what your having etc. that way when we graduate we are all up to date with what happening. But if you decide to move make sure you let us know and post a link, I'm sure there will be more coming over to the graduates this month
Just my 2 cents
