Normal pap smear results

Today I received a phone call from my doctor's office on my pap smear results. It came back normal. When I had my first mammogram two months ago, it also came back normal, though I do have dense tissue, due to my being underweight. Now I just have to gain weight. I have no other doctor's appointments until early next summer, when I go to the eye doctor to get glasses. And then I go back to my doctor again for my next physical and blood work. Since I couldn't afford to go to the dentist anymore for cleanings, I do brush my teeth, and only need to go if I have a toothache, cavity, etc. Yeah for being healthy!

Good news, keep on doing what you're doing, just sprinkle a little sugar on it and maybe you'll put on a few pounds as well as maintain your good health.

Thanks Kevin. I hear you. Every year, the price for the cleaning goes up by two dollars. This year it was $101.

@KristenH Wow, not sure of the cost here, not been for some time and I can't remember what it was the last time I did go.

@kevin1877uk Yep. And I don't have a dental insurance either. I can't afford it either. I just have Medicare. If I have a toothache or a broken tooth, like I got one, 2.5 years ago, I would go to the dentist. But not for cleanings twice a year.

@kristinh I am happy you are healthy, too! I have to go to the cardiologist on January 31 then another doctor they are going to call me on February 19th to make the appointment as I see this doctor every three months! This is a new way to make appointments! Happy your pap smear and mammogram were healthy! Happy 2017!

@KristenH It is only four times a year for the one doctor unless I have to go in between, but still keep that every three months appointment! Let's hope for both of us to be healthy this year!

Thanks. My secret. Well, every since I went to the gym, 2.5 years ago, I did a lot of exercise classes, walked to the gym and church and to the local store. I also ate healthy food and ditched junk food. I also drank a lot of water too.

That's for sure. Oh wow. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. My cousin told me don't have chocolate or soda before your appointment and drink water. No deodorant either.

Good news like that is such a relief!! Yes, dental care is pricey. We do have dental insurance, but it still costs big time if a problem arises.

Yes it is indeed. That's for sure. I don't even have dental insurance. Just Medicare. The price kept going up by 2 dollars ever year. I would go bankrupt and wipe out my savings, if I kept going twice a year. I told that to my doctor last week. I can't afford to go anymore.
