Hi all, am new to this group, but reading everyone’s posts and experiences has really helped to explain things to me! Though I still have some more questions if anyone out there could please help?? Had borderline abnormal smear last summer with high risk hpv - went for colposcopy last July and it seems the cells had gone back to normal. Just had my second colposcopy Wednesday last week and the coloscopist said there were loads of abnormal cells and took 3 punch biopsies I am now waiting for results… My questions are:
How do I get results? It says on this site by letter in 4 weeks, unless gp suspects cancer then it will be telephone call earlier in 2 to 3 weeks (I am in uk)
Also, as colposcopy was clear 6 months ago is it only possible for outcome to be cin1 as nothing picked up last time or is it possible to come back as cin2 or cin3
The coloscopist mentioned that if biopsy suggests treatment needed it would be under GA … Is that normal?
I have experienced strange symptoms for a very long time, main one being lower back pain- can I ask, in the case of cc is it more a pain or an ache?
Sorry for all questions!! I just prefer to get as much info as possible, it’s all very confusing xx
