I hung up the phone and the silence was deafening. My thoughts spun around my head and I felt so small. I was back in the same place I was a year ago.
“We found some abnormalities, and we have to do another biopsy.”
I’m not ready to go through this again. Just about a year ago, I heard those words, and it turned out to be very early cervical cancer—carcinoma in situ. A LEEP procedure later, and it was gone. Yes, it was small and early, but I beat it—my own little personal victory.
Six months later, everything still looked good. Now here I am six months removed from that, and I’m hearing this mess all over again but my doctor has a different level of concern this time. She’s more worried and urgent, but I’m trying not to read too much into that.
I go next week for the biopsy and will have the results soon after. I’m scared, but prayer is keeping me calm.
