I hope you help! I've just come home from my Colposcopy appointment. My first smear found severe dyskariosis. So, the Colposcopy prewarned me to expect to be treated during the same app. So i booked a few days off work and prepared myself for the Lletz treatment today (as this is the treatment they explained to me). I went in today and firstly had a chat with the consultant. She explained the smear results a bit further and said she would be taking a number of punch biopsies for testing. I was sent in to a room for prep where I expected my partner to meet me as he had come along for support. During this time he had been told that he must wait in the waiting room. He was confused as he knew I wanted him with me. I asked where he was and the nurse said you're not having any treatment so he doesn't need to be here. So the consultant came in to the room and said so just to clear things up we will only perform the punch biopsies. I asked if this would be the case even if it would be apparent I needed treatment. She said that unfortunately she is not qualified to perform the lletz treatment and would therefore need to come back again in the new year after my results had returned. I have never had any problems with the speculum. I'm not sure why it hurt today but i burst in to tears with how sore it felt. Theere was one nurse on either side of me and despite their kind words they kept hold of my legs so I wouldn't move. At this point I thought surely they will go and fetch my boyfriend- but nothing. I calmed myself down and the biopsies and silver nitrate didn't cause any pain, just felt awkward and gave me a tummy ache. After the procedure stage consultant showed me a pic of my cervix with the white parts. She told me that I had CIN2 and was positive that I have HPV. Now, from what I've read on here and on NHS direct, and from what the same colposcopy unit told me last week i thought that anything aboVe CIN1 needed to be treated quickly. I came home feeling like I'd just come to the hospital on the wrong day and had been seen by a stand in! I phoned the unit back and explained my worry about waiting until the new year for treatment. She said they wanted to be sure of the cin2 so they don't over treat or under treat me. At the same time my friend went in today with very similar results- and she had treatment (LLETZ) there and then. so now I feel like IVe had no relief from my appointment and ive got another few months of worry! I had to take diazepam to get me to this appointment and after the way my legs were held apart, how my partner wasn't allowed in with me and the roughness of the consultant I just don't want to go back! I'm so upset- and wanted to know of anybody thinks this is normal? Abnormal?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time xx
