I got the results of a recent smear test this morning. They have found some abnormal cells on my cervix so I have to go for a colposcopy – a more detailed examination of my cervix. I told Phil and I’m going to tell Tom but I don’t feel the need to tell anyone else. Really there isn’t any need to. The only thing going on right now is abnormal cells and that’s okay. A fifth of all smears come back with an abnormal result, most of them are fine. Maybe I will be wrong about thinking there’s going to be more than this and maybe my colposcopy will come back fine too. The fact is, there’s not a great deal I can do about it all anyway.
