    Well all, it was a tough evening. My mammogram came back just fine, no issues. HOWEVER, it's my other girl parts that are severely abnormal and require a biopsy inside of the next 3 months. On a scale of 1-3, with 3 being the worst, yep, I scored a 3. That's me, always striving to be the best! Shocking part is I've never had an abnormal pap, ever.

    Oh boy..

    Why aren't they doing the biopsy right away, if this is a #3 level concern?

    Sending positive vibes out to you Gayle.

    I was wondering the same as what Pat said - why such a wait??? But then, Canada operates a whole lot differently than the U.S. in the healthcare department, as I have learned from another Canadian friend.

    Gayle, if it was REALLY horrid they would have packed you into a hospital NOW for a biopsy! I hope the biopsy is soon so you don't have to wait.

    May just be a minor thing. I had a pap come back abnormal, had biopsies done and ended up having cryosurgery (sp). Check-ups every six months for two years and haven't a problem since and that's been 25+ years ago.

    Will pray that yours is the same minor kind of thing.

    Hopefully it will all turn out to be nothing, it is a good sign they are okay with you waiting that long before the biopsy. We'll be thinking of you until then!

    Thanks so much everyone. Today feels like I'm carrying an extra 100 lbs of weight on my back, I weigh less than 100 lbs soaking wet!

    The stress of everything is weighing heavily on me today. I'm listing to my soothing classical music and trying to "chill". It was really nice to come here and see the new, lovely comments from all of you. Thank you.
