Hi everyone. I'm 25 years old and may have cerival cancer. I went to my doctor on Wednesday to get the results of my pap. I knew something was up because she usually tells me over the phone. We sit down and she pulls out her diagram to show me what my cells look like versus normal cells. She then goes on to tell me I have HPV, in the high risk category and that I may have cervical cancer. I was shocked!
However, some of the things my body has been doing started to make sense. I have been having a lot of joint pains and aches and an abnormal discharge.
I go to get a colonsopy (I think that's how you spell it) on Tuesday. I'm wondering... What are some of the symptoms that you all had leading up to and during your cervical cancer? Also, how long does it usually take after the procedure to find out what stage of cancer you have?
Thank you for all your help with this. I'm very scared and it's hard to talk to my family and loved ones about it when they really have no idea what I'm going through.
