Hi I am 55 yo and had HPV 4 years ago and had a hysterectomy. I see a lot of young women on here. i didn't have a papsamear after my hysterectomy. I didn't know I had to. My new gynocologist said you usually don't need one but u have HPV and u should have had 1 every 6 months. He gave me a papsmear and also checked for blood in my stool. My stool came back pos for blood and my pap came back with displaysia and it was high so I had biopsies of vaginal wall and I haven't gotten results. I have appt tuesday and they will tell me then. Weather they come back high or not I will have to see a gynological/oncologist. If it comes back low it will eventually go high. That's how it works. You always have HPV. I was told I will probably have to have radiation and chemo because of where it is.
