    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    After my initial pap came back abnormal Dr.W did a colposcopy and punch biopsy which came back cancerous. Cancer in situ as of now.

    Conization

    Procedure or Surgery

    Dr.W says that the kind of cancer she found usually has trouble getting past the cervix. It had, however, spread around my cervix. She took most of the cervix via cold knife cone and went into the surrounding skin a little then burned with a laser.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Allergic reaction

    Side Effects

    Pretty sure it's an allergic reaction. Have a burn like wound across my buttocks which blistered and is now raw. Waiting to hear from the doc.

    Cancer is gone!

    Celebration

    The doctor said the margins came back clear! She got it all :) I have a 6 month check up in September.
