My gynaecologist’s lovely admin person rang today.
The HPV has disappeared!
I’m stoked. Have lived with the knowledge of it, and the cancer it caused, for so long, I’m just stunned.
And it also made me feel super cool, as that means no new transmission from my barman, who has slept with a few women over his lifetime! I didn’t infect him, and he hasn’t given me a new strain.
However, there are some other changes. No more six monthly smears. Normally we do them three yearly in NZ. But with my changes, they want me back in a year.
A year! I won’t be prodded in six months’ time. It’s not three years. But, so good. I’ve been six monthly for so many years now.
Best news in ages. Especially as this pneumonia drags on…
