I received my cervical screening results on Friday and have been diagnosed with high grade severe dyskaryosis CINlll with a colposcopy appointment booked tomorrow morning (Wednesday).
I'm scared that it will hurt as I imagine I will be more tense than I usually would be for a normal screening test. I'm scared of feeling overwhelmed if they say they will do the treatment there and then, but also hoping that they do so that it is over and done with. I'm scared that the injections, biopsies and whatever else might happen will be painful. I'm also scared that I will have to wait a while in the waiting room and get in more of a panic. I'm scared that the clinicians won't be friendly and put me at ease. I'm scared it will take longer than I am preparing myself for.
I have studpidly been looking on Youtube thinking that it would put my mind at rest, but it has done theexact opposite. I'm not sure if it is just from the magnification of the images but everything looks so big and the procedures look damaging to the cervix. I had a little feel inside and can feel a raised section next to the entrance of the cervix (where that slit thing is). I'm also a bit worried as I have been taking anxiety medication recently and have since had quite severe uncontrollable poo problems. Can you just imagine if this happens whilst sat in the chair, although this would be marginally hilarious :). I'm a bit worried that this will turn out to be more than precancerous as I have very achy bones, and feel tired alot, although don't have many of the other symptoms.
Good luck to everyone. I keep reading that it is not so bad and maybe thinking about how great it will feel afterwards knowing it is most likely over, fingers crossed x
