ask: Multiple HPV s and cervical cancer

I have multiple cervical cancer causing HPV's 16,18,31,33,35,39,45,51,52,56,58,59,66,68. I am over 60 and It does not seem my immune system is going to respond. I have cervical cell changes and several positive PAP's. If I have my cervix removed (extreme I know) will the HPV be removed ? I am tired of worrying about cervical cancer and positive PAP's. I was in a monogamous relationship so I thought,,with a man whore.

I have been extremely exhausted since I was diagnosed . Can this be a part of my extreme fatigue ? I plan to have blood work done.

Does the HPV virus produce any toxins while living and dying in our body?

Hello babylipstick,

There is most likely an emotional component contributing to your extreme fatigue, principally the feeling of betrayal from your partner.

A total abdominal hysterectomy would remove the cervix and uterus. This would remove the pre-cancerous cells and eliminate the fear of developing cervical cancer.

However, the HPVs remain in your body, if your immune system has not cleared them.

Most HPV infections, about 90%, go away by themselves within two years. However, HPV infections will persist and can cause a variety of serious health problems, including genital warts and cervical cancer. This appears to be your case.

To my knowledge, no toxins are released by the HPV.
