Well I am home with both good news and not so good news.

First the good news. While the wonky cells are not cancer at this point in time, they are known as pre cancerous and if left for too long would more than likely become so.

The bad/and yet not bad news is the specialist recommended surgery as urgent. I had two choices. The first was just to remove the part of the cervix that had the cells and worry about them reappearing or have a total hysterectomy and never worry about it again. I picked the total much to Hubby's chagrin at the time. He now thinks differently.

I have some papers for my doctor to fill out and once she gets them back to the specialist the surgery will be booked. It could be as early as 2 weeks from when he gets the papers to 6 weeks after.

Finally things are getting to the end.

Jackie good to hear that you are going to have the surgery and things are ok right now.. I had a hysterectomy when I was 32 and really it has not been a problem for me.

Thank God Jackie!

Surgery is always disconcerting but nothing compared to cancer. My two best friends and my niece had hysterectomies and they said they should have had them 20 years earlier they felt so much better.

I am so relieved for you. Changing those prayers to a successful surgery!! Well done frugal friend!

I am glad you have answers, I had a hysterectomy more than 40 years ago. I hope your surgery date is sooner rather than later. Lots of {{{{{HUgs}}}}}} and a speedy recovery.

LOL!! I LOVE my dog, but oh my give me a fish any day -- if they have their filter, bubbler, plenty of water & conditioner, and a pinch of flakes every days, they are so happy. Dog (ours at least) requires special grain-free food else he vomits for hours or days on end, then requires Even More special foo; then a crate/ bed, water & kibble bowls, toys, vitamins, and vet visits.

No gerbils for me... they stink. ;)
Have you read the reports that the grain free food is causing heart problems in dogs? Give me a dog any kind, any day. Couldn’t live without one, even if our four get me up by 5 every morning. My first friends were hound dogs of my brothers. We lived in the country.
