Dear: Lymphopo Squeakywheel

Your pap smear result was abnormal.

You have been referred to GYN clinic for follow-up.

You can call us at 1-800-BAD-NEWS if you have any questions.

-T. Boudreaux, FNP
BCCNP Clinic
Our Lady of the Damned Medical Center

Sigh. I know, it could be nothing. But I was so enjoying my little break from medical angst.

Crap. Here's to hoping it's the kind of abnormal that only needs a little freezing or scraping.

Dangnabbit. I'm holding out hope it's minor. No need worrying before you know if you really need to worry. Hang in there.

I am convinced the specimen was hemolyzed (read "f---ed up"). When do you see Drs. Boudreau and Thibodeaux?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Here's hoping its just an insufficient sample or a shitty slide.

Keeping everything crossed. When's the appointment?

I don't have an appointment yet. I don't get any say in the matter, I just have to wait for them to send me an invitation.

Its probably nothing. Every pap smear that I have had done since I was 16 years old has come back abnormal. They make me have one every year, and every year they just "watch it". Abnormal doesn't mean sick. Just repeat that to yourself over and over. Abnormal DOES NOT mean sick. I'll keep you in my prayers regardless.
