First Post-LEEP pap

I wanted to thank everyone on this board for the last few months. Although I've usually been a lurker and not a poster, I appreciated the stories of all of the brave women for the last four months while I've been going through my own little cervical nightmare. I was diagnosed with CIS (CIN III) in February, 11 months after a completely normal pap (and a history of normal paps). My doctor assumed I had (have) HPV, but the HPV had been dormant since I'd been completely monogamous for over eight years.

I had a LEEP cone a few weeks after diagnosis. The margins were clear (which was a huge relief) but I was still scared to death of that first post-LEEP pap. I'm 32, have never had children and was trying to avoid a hysterecomtomy. Well, great news, the first pap came back completely normal. I also had them do a HPV test because I've read that a pap and a HPV test is as reliable as a colposcopy. Well, the HPV test was negative. So for the time being, it appears that I have this thing licked. I think this will now give me the time to have a family (although I'm waiting until I have at least two normal paps).

I'm not sure if it was only the LEEP, the fact that I'm now off hormonal birth control and using condoms everytime I have sex, the multivitamin + folic acid + indol 3-carbinol, the loss of fast food from my diet, or a combination of the above. But I guess at this point it doesn't matter. I can honestly say that I'm a much healther person than I was 6 months ago. It ***** that it takes an "almost" cancer diagnosis to scare some of us into taking better care of our bodies but I guess I'll go with whatever works. I wish every single one of you out there the same good news that I just received!

And although I hope I never have to come back to this web site, I want all of you to know what a wonderful resource this is.

It is great that you have good slash that great news.

Yes it is a shame that it take a cancer diagnosis to bring us to our senses to live a healthier lifestyle, but it happens.

In a nice way I hope I never have to see you on this board, but at least is nice that we have a way to talk, chat, or help others that are in the same boat so to speak.

God Bless and best wishes on continued clear paps

I am glad that everything is working out so well for you. Cancer or the fear of cancer helps many of us start living healthier happier lives. I hope you never have to worry about cancer again.

Isn't good news wonderful?

Now remember to keep those appointments for close follow-up. Early detection is the best thing (but we'll assume that all your future PAP's will come back normal).

Keep us posted on how things are going for you! Wishing you a lifetime filled with health, happiness, and peace.
