I know, I know, you can't believe your luck - another update about my cervix. My doc just called to tell me that after 4 months my post-LEEP PAP check is wonky. The cells are registering as if they are still healing. Four months after a procedure to remove cells that were pretty far along the continuum towards cancer. Yeah. Not good news. They'll run a test for HPV; if that is negative, they'll assume its a PAP aberration and rePAP again in 4-6 months. Sigh. If I test positive for HPV, well then this will be the year of the radical hysterectomy instead of the year of the third baby.

The cervix formerly known as Superstar now goes by *@"?+# (pronounced 'Squeaky Wheel).

I'm so sorry to hear that! How unsettling and disappointing. I hope everything turns out to be a testing error!
