    on being single and sharing this diagnosis with potential relationships, this is what I've learned. HPV doesn't 'cause' cancer.  They don't fully know the connection.  in my reading, I believe it is just like anything else the immune system is already compromized, so cancer being the opportunistic thing it is, can thrive. HPV is more common that most ppl realize.  It can be transmitted from any mucus...

      one thing I haven't read here is the damage to the thyroid.  If it has gone hypo, this could explain a bit of fatigue.  Not sure everyone continues to check on this, but won't hurt to ask dr to check on next labs. I started this hyper thyroid (4 years ago) and was normal after treatment, but went hypo last year, so continuing to check is a good thing.

        I had a gtube n a g/j-tube that had 2 ends on both sides.   both went through the same outer tummy hole. when my first tube ripped out of the stomach they put in a new hole in the stomach.  I figure the angle was off and was quite uncomfortabe when I moved, especially laying down.  all 3 tubes I had were balloon.   not sure all this makes sense  ;)

                since Dec 1, 2001, I have trigeminal neuralgia . . the left side of my face is numb with no other symptoms.  no droopy face, no pain.  I also feel pressure in that ear.  It is constant, though.  I've been checked for all the 'normal' reasons for all this, but nothing was confirmed.  They concluded it was 'non specific', in other words, they don't know why, but it is numb.  Like you my bo...

                  I had 3 biopsies on my tonsils. the first I was put under a general anesheshia . . was told they needed a big chunk for that one.  The 2nd one they were checking another hot spot & swollen area found on the other tonsil by my scan.  It was scheduled in the office the next day.  I was scared, but was told I could drive myself, not a big deal.  I wish I had someone else driving cause all the wa...

                    it is hard for me to chew things, the jaw gets very sore after just a bit of chewing . . can't do beef, but ham seems to chew easier, n I can also swallow it with the low saliva production.  I get horrible cramps in the neck (all around)  and legs all around also .. even in my tummy . . I haven't tried massage for it, but I do try to work on my posture when it happens.  stretching when I'm without a c...
