      I'll be 10 years out in the fall. I still tire rather easily, if I have a really busy day, like I just walked around New York City all day long, It will catch up with me in a day or two, and I have to be a couch potato for a day. And if I get sick with the flu or a sinus infection, it takes a looooong time for me to bounce back. It hits me really hard.

      There are always after effects. A part of our body has been removed, I have had surgery site hernias and an obstruceted bowel due to scar tissue. As for neuropathy, I still have it. It can be somewhat controlled by medications.

    9/11/2018. I had laser surgery for pre-cancerous cells of the cervix and vaginal wall. I have Pap smears every 6 months. The last 5 out of 6 were ASCUS but within the last 6 month check up I had precancerous cells. Anal cancer has been over 20 years ago and I’m happy about that but my concern is cervical cancer.
