The colposcopy went relatively well. I'm still slightly worried due to comments made by the consultant but he (and the rest of the team) were truly lovely. He said I needed treatment, and he has taken some stuff out but from what I can understand, it was (so he thinks) indicative of CIN2. BUT he did make comments about atypical blood vessels which has made me a little bit concerned (must remember STAY AWAY FROM GOOGLE!!!). My feeling is that this is not the end of it but I am definitely more hopeful than I was before, so YAY to that at least.
Oddly enough, I could NOT feel the local anaesthetic at all, but boy did I feel the speculum. Wonder if they use a bigger speculum than the nurse does at the smear or if he was just not as gentle with my lady parts...
Also, had a lovely med student in who held my hand throughout, bless her. She's going to make an excellent dr.
Interestingly, the consultant said that with CIN3, there is around a 30% chance of it developing into cervical cancer in around 12 years.
Guess its just a wait and see now. My appointment letter said 4 weeks for biopsy results but the nurses said a couple of weeks and that the consultant calls you and will send a letter if he can't speak to you. Must say I am very impressed with the speed and attitude of the staff at my local hospital. We are definitely lucky to have the NHS.
