Pre-Cancerous Cell found!

Friday, July 01, 2011 / Comments (7) / by Skinny Yash

I've been telling all my friends, "Go and do your Pap Smear...You never know what's happening inside you..". Before i moved to Penang, even before married, i did a regular Pap smear test. Like once a year. Certain people do answer me back with "why must i do? I don't even have sex for once!" Truly speaking, it's up to u guys. :) But from what i read, you have to start do your pap smear once u reached 21 yo or you are sexually active. :) So, this are my stories...

It's been almost 1 and a half years i never did my Pap Smear Test. Before that, all my results are clean and clear! And out of a sudden, i feel like want to go for a check up. I went to my usual personal Gynae at Bangsar Women Specialist Clinic. A very good and nice Doctor Kamaljit! :) (100% recommended). She will ask u lot's of questions regarding your sexual activities (no tipu-tipu eh!) and will advice you what's not and how you can prevent this and that.

RM150 inclusive of Pap Smear Test and scanning (and even breast cancer check!). This price has been the same since the past 3 years! Good huh?! :) You will be ask to loose you bra, take out your pants and underwear. During the scanning, she will show you this and that..whether it is normal or abnormal around your uterus or vagina. For Pap Smear Test, you need to be relaxx! Totally relax! "If not, you will feel the pain!" said the Doctor. I hate this! :P She will ask you to open up your legs. i mean widely open! Nothing to be shame off! Dia dah tengok beribu vagina kot! hehehe And she will use the speculum and open up your vagina so that she can take off the sample of cells to be tested in lab.

Within a minute or two, you're done! Yeay! :) They will send the samples to Lab to test and within a week or less, you may get the results. Normal procedure, if it's okay then you don't need to go to the clinic again, but if it's not okay, then the doctor will make an appointment for 2nd meet up. On 10th June, i got my results and they ask me to come to see the doctor. And i know this is not okay! Damn! And so, they schedule me on the 13th June. The day has come and the doctor said "I don't like this...." Oh my...nak gugur jantung rasanya. :( And so she explained about my Pap Smear Test results, it's abnormal because they found a pre-cancerous cells in the uterus. But, do not panic! This is curable! So i have to undergo a Colposcopy to see the cells  clearer. This have to be done by the senior Gynae. So, she transferred me to University Malaya Specialist Centre (UMSC), Petaling Jaya.

17th June, i went to UMSC for the Colposcopy procedure. It's a long day. I have to wait for like 2-3 hours to see the doctor! They use number though but effing slow! So, we went to the room to start with the procedure. Just took like 10-15minutes. Same procedure as Pap Smear Test, but this time the doctor used some kind like a gel and place it on the cervix. And he will use a large microscope positioned in front of your vagina to view your cervix. The bright light from the microscope let the Doctor see the inside of your cervix more clearly! :) You will be amazed to see you own cervix on the screen! lol Jarak dekat u'olls! :)At the same time, my husband keep on asking the doctor what's this and that..and in my head..."Please....stop asking questions...coz i'm in pain.....!" hahahahahahha And that is all....

And so, the doctor ask me to undergo another procedure which is Biopsy. This is to remove the cervical tissue that contains abnormal cervical cells or the pre-cancerous cells. And this scares me okay! I am supposed to do the next day straightaway, but i just thought that i am not ready mentally and physically. And so, i schedule it after my period and that is on 5th July. :(

I am still surveying how pain will this be. I hate say...but i don't feel want to do it.....

Just FYI,
