so I've had an abnormal smear and positive hpv.
a colcoscopy is booked for 13 July .
this is likely to be on day 6/7 of my period . Should I re book?
i have began taking supplements for immune system , drinking tumeric , and using garlic suppositaries... some are anti coagulant effect , should I stop taking before colcoscopy incase they do a biopsy, and if so when should I stop, and when should I resume? Do they always do a biopsy unless clear.
Silly question but.. when they are looking at the abnormal cells is that the hpv , or the effect of the hpv ? If abnormal cells go does that mean active hpv has gone? If you know what I mean .
How do I find out what hpv strain it is? Can they tell Me at colcoscopy ? Does he GP know? do they find out the strain when they do the smear test?
Do you need time off work after a biopsy , I have a physical , hot, draining job. Is this something s G P would write a sick note for. Or would the colcoscopy doctor?
