"minor changes in pap smear"

I have to go to see my doctor on Monday as my recent pap smear has picked up some minor changes...

I'm freaking out a bit...

She said it wasn't urgent but that she would like to speak to me and she needed to go more in depth than she can go over the phone...

I haven't told my family (John and my household know) as I don't want to worry them but I needed to vent, so here I am!

PLease send me some prayers!

5 of you love me enough to comment...:

argh, no one wants to hear that the doctor has stuff to talk about that can't be said over the phone, argh.

I hope everything is okay ash, thinking of you.

Please don't go freaking out over MINOR changes... most likely it is NOTHING to worry about at all! We all get these little changes that ring bells for no bloody reason.... I am sure it will be NOTHING to worry about.... easy to say I know.. but I had MAJOR changes last year and ended up having surgery twice! And recently I had it all out to prevent any more problems .... so just know MINOR means just that. Chill out if you can. I will be thinking of you anyway!

Prayers being sent your way.
Please try not to worry, my sister had the same thing last month... it usually does mean MINOR and they will most likely just want to remove the cells.
I am sure all will be fine. Thinking of you

Please try not to worry as the pap smear is doing exactly what it is suppose to by picking up minor changes in cells before they turn nasty. I had one a few years ago doctor removed the cells, very quick procedure followed by 3 monthy pap smears had not problems since.

Positive thinking honey. Like the others have said - minor canges are supposed to be picked up and I think it's wonderful that you actually went and GOT a smear to pickup those changes. I have too many friends who refuse to get them done.

Positive thoughts sugar. :)
