Sorry I've been gone so long. My home computer has a virus right now and I can't connect to the internet, so I'm borrowing a friend's PC right now.
Fredo -- thank you for the award! I will wear it proudly.
To give you an update, things are so-so right now. I got a call six days after the LEEP where the nurse told me that they got all of the dysplasia (the margins were clear) and that there was nothing in the canal. Well, I happened to go back to the doctor Monday because it seemed that I had a slight infection -- I did, but nothing antibiotics can't fix. Anyway, the doctor comes strolling into the room and announces that it sure was a good thing that he took a swipe of the cervical canal because there was CIN III there! How the nurse mis-read that, I don't know, because it was clear as day on the copy of the report he handed me. Anyway, the thing that worries me is that the severe cells were of the glandular type. My doctor is saying to just come back in three months, however, his office has screwed up a few too many times for my taste and I'm not comfortable there anymore. A friend of a friend recommended an oncologist GYN who I am in the process of getting an appointment with right now. I just want a second opinion as to how to proceed. On one hand, I'm positive because the margins were clear, on the other, I'm worried about the severe glandular cells in the canal. I will keep you all updated and hopefully have a functioning computer soon.
Thanks for all your support.
