I received my 3rd and final gardasil injection yesterday; even though I am way , way, did I mention way, over the age range that they are normally given; my rad doc feels since I was never a smoker or much of a social drinker, that my cancer was something viral. I asked about HPV when he mentioned the injections last year , he said all my biopsies were negative for the virus. So who knows, I may have had the virus a zillion years ago, I could have been exposed to the pesticides sprayed on the farm areas I lived near, Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Harrisburg, PA wasn't far from me, the pesticides used for bugs in the office where I used to work , spraying while we worked, heck it could have been all those visits to the dentist when they took xrays and never protected my neck, or even as my ENT said when I asked how , tells me , I may just fall into that small percentage of "we don't know". None the less perhaps my rad doc and internist are right , these shots will boost my immune and metabolism system...lets hope for the best.
