Abnormal PAP 9 months after treatment

Hi there. I am really afraid after being informed my PAP came back abnormal. I talked with my oncologist and she said the cells were found in my glandular tissue, which is where my cancer was. I had adenocarcinoma of the cervix, stage 1B1, grade 3. I had one positive node. I had a radical hysterectomy in Sept 2010, followed by 25 radiation and chemo. I go in on Oct 11 for a biopsy, and I am really afraid I have a recurrence. I don't feel well, and haven't for quite some time. I am getting tired....I am very overwhelmed. I need any support I can get. Thank you...

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I know it's nerve racking every time we have to go back for a test and wait for the conclusion. We've all been through enough and it doesn't seem quite fair that after all we've gone through...this ugly dragon can choose to rear it's ugly head again without a moments notice.
Wish I had some great words of wisdom to share with you, but alas, I don't. Hang in there and keep posting...it really does help talking to others that've walked a mile in your shoes.

Thanks for the hug and encouragement Becky. I appreciate it. The waiting is the worst.
