I went to the doctor this morning kicking and screaming. (This was done in a very mature fashion.) I get there and I was asked to read and sign a consent form that would cover cryo, leep, and a few other things.
"Uh, no one told me this would be happening. I am going to talk with the doctor before anything happens."
"Well, this is in case he decides to do this today."
I chewed my tongue until I was called back and I asked the nurse about it. She said that I was only supposed to read it and talk with the doctor about it and my options. Not sign it right then. Needless to say, I never signed the thing.
The doctor came in and said he read my chart. Because I am hpv negative across the board (they test for thirteen strains) then it will be a wait and see. Have another pap in six months and see what that shows. If it comes back positive, then we will discuss from there.
I am very thankful that this doctor is conservative especially with me not having the biggest risk factor. If I was positive for hpv, then today would have been a bit different. Wait and see works for me. In the meantime, I will do my part to make sure I stay healthy.
