I'm hoping someone may have been through a similar experience and may be able to offer some advice/guidance.
Basically, I've been under the colposcopy unit at my local hospital for about 18months now. My first visit outlined some borderline changes and they did a punch biopsy which they were happy with and I was issued with an appointment for a 12month check up.
I've since been for that appointment where they had a look and did a smear, but thought everything looked ok. So, imagine my surprise when I got a letter to tell me I had CIN3 and that I would need treatment.
Just over 2 weeks ago I had a loop excision at the colposcopy clinic and I was told that they'd see me again in 6months time for a follow up. I've not had be best recovery so far and ended up going to see my GP who confirmed I had a slight infection and gave me some antibiotics. That said, I'm feeling much better now.
This morning however, I received a letter to say that I have an appointment with a Gynaecologist on the 23rd October. No reason as to why, and no results from the loop excision either.
Unfortunately, it's Saturday so although I've phoned the hospital there's no one there until Monday that I can speak to. I've left a message with the senior nurse who did my loop excision so I'm hoping she gets in touch first thing.
In the meantime, I'm tying myself in knots with worry as to what on earth they want to see me for. Throughout this whole process I've been astounded by the lack on information on these letters, and the fact I have to ring round and chase up for information.
Has anyone else been called in to see a gynaecologist after a loop excision? Could it just be a formality? Monday can't come quick enough so I can actually speak to someone.
