All well!

Delighted to report that both tests I had on Monday are negative for cancer - the pap smear and the Z-sampler.
Had to phone the gynaecologist's emergency pager for the second time before he phoned me with the results. But he did apologise and did seem to understand that for me, getting the results was an emergency, was urgent.
I am so pleased that I was assertive enough to phone his emergency pager again this afternoon when he didn't phone me this afternoon and his rooms were closed. He was rushing to theatre for an emergency, he said.
I am relieved. Totally relieved. I kept thinking he is trying to protect me, trying to give me a few more carefree days before he breaks the news, and I kept thinking he is being negligent... one can work oneself up.
Glad I can now relax over the weekend.

  1. There's nothing worse than having to wait the weekend till you get your test results back. It's torture. Pure torture. You did the right thing by calling his emergency pager. Hopefully, he'll remember this and not make you wait next time.
