    Procedure or Surgery (Conization): I was in a German hospital in 1974. The first week was to do extensive diagnostics and the second week was for recovery. I was assured they excised the entire mass with clean borders but needed monitoring every 3 months for 5 years. It is 40 years later and now I am having positive paps for VAIN.

    I am so sorry. I am also 62 and was diagnosed a few months ago. Fortunately mine seems to have been caught early enough so that all I needed was laser surgery. If you wouldn't mind and if you are up to it, would you mind telling me how you discovered it and what stage it is. I was also told I have the high risk HPV which seems to be the culprit behind all of this. That was enough to send me into a downward spiral but nothing like what you are going through. I sincerely wish you all the best and my prayers are with you.
