There was up and downs but I made it. Everybody I seem to talk to either has a good story or bad. So my mind does not know where to go. some say its over some say well I have heard or known women having vaginal cancer not too many make it out.OK I really don't want to hear that. Well just needed to vent . Send me all your prayers on Monday cause away I go.

1st pap after hyster

Hi Albie, after having cervical cancer it is important to have the regular paps. In the majority of cases it is 'over' but in a VERY small percent there are further complications , I was one of them . But my abnormal cells were found at my 6 week checkup. This happened because some tissue containing the abnormality was not removed. Mine was an aggressive/invasive type . As for not making it out here I am after having vaginal cancer . I made it out I have no idea why people have to tell us horror stories, it is scary enough having had cancer. Most ladies here who have had cervical cancer have been ok after their treatment, they will be along soon to reassure you too. I know how hard it is when facing a checkup, mine is on Nov 22 and I am stressing real bad. But it is important to think positive. You hang in there , you will be ok and we are here for you anytime you need us.

Try to have a great weekend and keep your mind off of Monday. There is really no sense in worrying as it won't change anything and you will probably just worry for nothing. Try to think positive dear!! We are here for you if you need to vent anytime!!

Ok, we can worry together. I am one year post op, ovarian cancer, and going in for my first pap after that. I am worried too. I also go in on Monday. My daughter has a 3:45 appt for her 2 month checkup (pregnant) and I follow on her heels with my one year check. Hope all goes well with both of us.

BTW, if you ladies want to see the pictures of my little alien, check this out:


She was 9 1/2 weeks along when this ultrasound was done.

1st pap after hyster...

Most of us make it out! Of course no sense skipping paps now. I had my cancer several years ago now and at each check up I still get nervous and get myself all worked up. But it does get easier as time goes on. I breathe a sigh of relief and try to forget about it until the next visit. I used to get so nervous that I used to have the doctor call me at work because I wanted to know the results as soon as they came in. I told him to leave a message on my voice mail at work. Well the voice mail was not working one day and messages were automatically sent to the switchboard. He ended up leaving a message with the switch board operator and the operator gave it to another male employee to give it to me. I felt like the whole building had found out before me that my pap smear was within normal limits. That was a little embarrassing. Now I can wait a week without getting nuts. I will keep you in my prayers for Monday. Take care.

Good luck tomorrow, Albie! I just got the results of mine (8 months postop), and it turned out fine. The waiting about drove me crazy though. I think we are justified in our nervousness, I mean, who would want to go through this again? But, as Robyn said, vaginal cancer is rare, so odds are your tests will come back great! Then we can have a celebration post in a few days!

Now the waiting

I went to check up ladies, I had a good talk with DD. Before the appt. was over he schedules a mammogram for the 27th. I did not expect that I am only 34 I thought that was when I was 40.

I made it through the appt. though
