Hi, I’m new here. I’m 57 post menopausal and I’ve been really stupid. I haven’t gone for my last few smear tests. No excuses, I always had something more important to do and then forgot about it. I had a CT scan recently which showed a bulky cervix and so had internal and external ultrasound. Went to see a gynaecologist for the results and she said ultrasounds were fine but she would do a smear test while I was there (no escape). It was really painful and she said that she could see some ulceration and bleeding and now I’ve got an urgent colcoscopy on Friday. I have had no obvious symptoms so hoping it is just my age, maybe cervical erosion?? I feel so stupid for missing important health tests like my smears and afraid now I’m paying for it.
Hi. You are not the first or last person to be “stupid” As you say life gets in the way and its not on top of the list to get done. I was also stupid,but i have come through,i’ve now been clear of cc grade 3 for 16 months. Besides you don’t no the out come yet,so get the colposcopy a out of the way,then take things from there. It does look bad,but it can come back as something else. I have my fingers crossed for you. So good luck and do keep in touch through this forum,there are some good people on here who can really help you. Xxxx
