Hi all, I'm new on here and out of my mind with worry. I had a colposcopy on 8th May and a LLETZ was performed there and then following identification of extensive CIN3. The nurse said she'd 'got it all' and that I'd just need to come back for a follow-up smear in November. However, I'm a major worrier and sometimes I stress so much that I miss key bits of information, so I really hadn't picked up on the fact that the LLETZ is essentially a test and that at some point I'd get results!
So, I got a letter yesterday telling me that my smear appointment in Nov has been cancelled and instead I'm to go in and see the Consultant next Monday, 8th June. That's it, no other detail was given. I phoned up to see if they could give me any more info to put my mind at rest a bit and save me panicking for the next week, but the nurse said they can't give results over the phone, and that's made me worry even more because surely if the news was good or even neutral they wouldn't drag me in to see the Consultant? Has anybody else experienced similar, or can you give me an idea of what to expect when I go in? The nurse wasn't very forthcoming, just kept saying that the Consultant would be able to answer my questions next week and that I should try not to worry in the meantime. Easier said than done!!
I can't focus on anything else at the moment, I've had a meltdown in work and I'm being a complete cow to everyone because I'm so stressed. I know everybody's experience with this is different and in the absence of any real information at this stage it's going to be hard for anyone to give advice...I think maybe I just came on here to vent a little to people who understand. People keep telling me there's no point worrying until I've got results but it's the not knowing that's wrecking my nerves. Any moral support that might stop me losing it completely between now and next Monday would be very much appreciated.
