When are paps normal again?

I had stage 1b adenocarcinoma of the cervix. Had the hyst, had external and internal radiation that I finished in January, and I'm being watched closely by my doctors. I get a pap every 3 months now, and they come back with dysplasia, which I know is normal for a while. What I was wondering is if anyone knows the average time it takes before the paps start coming back completely normal again in cases where there is no recurrence. I've been getting 'cancer head' lately, although my chances for survival are very good. Again, I know to expect abnormal cells in my paps for a while, I'm just wondering for about how long. Thanks ladies! You're the best!

This is really a good question for your doc. I happened to be in visiting my doctor, so I asked him your question. He said that it might always come back abnormal because of the scar tissue from the radiation, so when your sample is sent to the lab they need to indicate that you've had radiation so that the pathologist takes a close look at it with that information in mind. Your doctor may also have some other thoughts on that, so give him/her a call so that you can put your mind at rest.
