I am really looking for some advice from people who have been where I am at the moment. I had a smear test in January and the results were abnormal. I was referred to a gynacologist in February to have a colcoscopy. The doctor took some punch biopsys and afterward the first thing he asked me was ''Do you want to have more children?''. Unexpecting this sort of response my boyfriend and I laughed and said not for a few years (at that point we had no idea that most treatments for CC would make me infertile / incapable of having children). He then went on to explain that such a large area of the cervix was at least at CIN3 and would have to be removed under general anesthetic. I asked if there was cancer and he said he could not say until the biopsy results (I pressed hum on it and it was clear he was reluctant to speak about anything until he hard proof).
I am waiting for the results on Monday / Tuesday, I can call then or wait for Friday because at the Colposcopy we already scheduled an appointment so that we coul discuss a treatment plan. Obviusly this all has me very worried because I have noticed it is not normal for a doctor to mention children at a colposcopy (he brought this up after the examination) and also for this hospital it is not normal for the doctor to immediatly sechule an appointment without waiting for the biopsy results (when I rang for the results yesterday the receptionist told me that they would only call me if the results were bad and otherwise to wait until my next pap smear.. I didn't even bother trying to explain to her what had happened at the colposcopy because I seeem to be met at every turn with the line ''you don't have cervical cancer, you are too young blah blah blah).
So just to wrap this up (sorry for the long post)..I am 26 years old and have a two year old daughter. I wanted a pap smear when she born but the doctor refused. I have some symptoms such as heavey abnormal discharge, increasingly painful periods, lower back pain and pain during sex.
I really hope somebody can offer me some advice or support as I am struggling with everything at the moment!
