I want to thank all of you for being so brave and posting your stories. The have been so helpful to me. I had my routine pap in March 2008 and had a phone call 3 weeks ago that has completely turned my life upside down. I was told I had HPV and abnormal cells that showed high grade squamous lesions. I had a colposcopy the day after that phone call, and was told there was a 90% chance I would need to have a cone biopsy/LEEP. I will have surgery next week. I had my pre-op appointment today and my OBGYN told me she was surprised at the results from the colposcopy and how quickly all of this has developed. I have had regular pap smears since I was 16 years old, never was there a sign of low risk HPV, and now I have severe cervical dysplasia with carcinoma in situ. My OBGYN is not sure if this will be the end... One day a time is my motto. I am so greatful for NCCC and all of you!
