Biopsy Results and yet another procedure

Hey all, the two-week wait is over and the biopsy results from my Colposcopy are back. The biopsy confirmed abnormal cell development on the cervix. While I don't have a copy of the biopsy yet, I am assuming based on the treatment my doctor has suggested, that I have mild to moderate dysplasia of the cervix.

So the next step is Cryosurgery.

In a nutshell, I am going to be zapped with a very very cold stick which will freeze and kill the funky cells and allow the healthy cells below to come to the front. It takes 15 minutes at the most and other than a little discomfort, it should be a "walk in the park."


The great news is that this procedure is 85-90% effective in preventing the cells from continuing to develop into cancer.

I'm all about prevention!!

So now Monday afternoon will be "Crysosurgery Day"

And now I need to get back to work.

Still Living STRONG!
