Hi there every one.
I have just joined the form even though I have had the odd read over the past few weeks... I had my first smear test ( aged 26 ) in october recieved a letter day's later saying I hadhigh grade dyskarosis and that I had been referred for a Colopscopy ( which I had this afternoon )
however the nurse doing it didn't really help much at putting my mind at ease.. firstly telling me not to cry as I have had 3 children this should be easy ( to be honest I'd rather give birth every year than go through what I did today even though it was just uncomfortable not painfull.. it's the worry that makes it worse.) She told me
I can't be as tense when i have to come back for treatment..And that I will recieve my biopsy results in 6-8 week's. I was asked if I wanted to look at the screen during the procedure I said no but took a glance anyway( wish i had not!! ).. all I could see was a big load of white with odd bits of red around..
She did say she could clearly see I had HPV.. and she took 5 snips for the biopsy? She said when she recieves the biopsy results she will write to me and let me know what treatment I will be going in for ( booked for 21st jan 9 weeks time 2 days before my daughters 6th birthday :-( )
Whilst I was getting changed and trying to prepare my questions she disopeered and left me with the two nurses who were in there during the procedure & the student ) .. I wasn't sure what to ask first so just asked how long bleeding would last and then quickly left... I am kicking my self now.. I wanted to ask why was there lots of white abnormal cells... what are the chances of it being progressed and why she didn't really tell me much about what she saw? barring it was HPV..
I now have to go all way up to and over Christmas and most likely new year.. before I hear anything. ( she told me i would usually hear with in 5 weeks but pathology have time off over christmas ) I tried to think oh I will just come home and forget about it all until i get the letter through the door.. but I can not it's driving me mad waiting all ready I thought it was bad enough waiting for the Coloscopy.. i managed to try not to think about that.. to be honest i don't really want to go back at all.. but i guess thats not an option.. I didn't like not being told much is this usual?
Sorry I seem to have gone on and on here don't i??.. I only wanted to ask what the average waiting time was for getting biopsy results back... and what other's had results wise who were simular to my results so far.. Thank you in advance for reading my post... I again apologise for going on a little.. I haven't really spoken to anybody about it barring telling a couple of close friends and my sister & partner about the smear test results..
