Alright not exactly saddle up, but stirrup girls!!! LOL
Are you cringing yet??? LOL... I know I am.
Well, Thursday was my day (yearly visit) to go visit that dreaded doctor the ob/gyn. Now I should be used to him by now, but I have anxiety when it comes to this appointment. I sweat and get hot (no not hot flashes...yet LOL) and very nervous. My doctor is awesome and caring, but there is just something about it. I actually owe him a lot. I had not been to an ob/gyn since my son was born in 1999 until about 2002 because I hated them so much. I went to a different one to have my kids and the doctor actually passed away and she was only like 40 something. So I had to find a new one. Luckily, one of the EMTs I work with worked for one and said he was fantastic. I couldn't not go since I was starting to have major problems. Anyway, I went and talked with him and had the pap thing done and found I had abnormal paps at age 28. My Mom was diagnosed with uterine cancer a few years prior and she went 28 years without going to an ob/gyn. So I had to continue going back every three months or so for paps. Talk about sick of seeing my doc. I actually asked him if he was going to start paying me to come since it felt like I worked there since I saw him so much. I had many procedures/surgeries done too by this man in between. Nothing helped and he kept telling me a hysterectomy would work. However, he would not do it until I turned 30 so I could be sure I was done having kids. I knew I was and I was tired of the problems so 3 months after I turned 30 in December I had my surgery. This was the best choice I could make. Obviously they sent everything to pathology and sure enough I had the beginning stages of cervical cancer amongst other things. I feel awesome and am glad I had the surgery. The moral of this story as much as we hate going please go and have your exam.
