minor infection found

Well, luckily there weren't any pregnant women in the doctors office. Or if there were, I didn't notice them. The doctor said I was also having a discharge and he went and looked at it under the microscope. He came back and said it was a Yeast Infection. I said "again". It is my second one since the hyst. He gave me a prefilled applic with vaginal cream, but I told him a still had a refill for the Diflican "pill". He said the cream may work better. He said he could use the specimen for my pap since it was just Yeast. Now I have to wait and see how my pap comes back, hoping good of course. I asked him when I need to come back for another pap and he said 6 months. I find that hard to believe, I thought I was supposed to be seen every 3 months for a year or two. I am thinking of getting my records and swithing to a gyn/onc, I need to find out if one is on my insurance plan first. I also bled after the pap. I don't know if anyone else has experience with this or not.

Every DR is a little different in the way they do things. You'll notice that a GYN/ONC is very much suggested for any kind of cancer concern DX. Do you have any symptoms of a yeast infection besides the discharge? I had a yeast infection before my TAH and didn't even know it. Now I have a clear mucous discharge sometimes, but no other symptons you hear of like itching, burning or pain.

I'm glad your visit went well. I always breathe a sigh of relief when there are no pregnant women in the waiting room. I had all of my children with the same doctor, so I still associate going there with being pregnant.

My doctor would never do my PAP when I had a yeast infection. He always told me to come back in 12-14 days when everything was cleared up. He doesn't tend use diflucan very much either. I always got the 7 day cream (and he was adamant--no 1-day stuff for me). But every doctor is different, and so are the needs of each patient.

Most of us are on the every 3 month schedule for the first 2 years. Was your cancer very early stage then? Like 1A? I have often read that they are able to successfully treat many 1A's with a cone only. Since you did have invasive cancer, you might like to consider an opinion by a gyn/onc. They are the experts when it comes to female cancer, and it just might make you feel better about your own situation if you saw one.
