This is my first post, however, I have been reading all your posts for over a month now and has been a saving grace. I am quite a private person and my only sister is 8 months pregnant so I didn't like to bother her. So thank you
To start last month I started experiencing extreme flank pain on my right hand side below my rib cage with a very very saw pressure point of pain to the right of my belly button. I went to the GP tested for UTI etc. etc. all came back clear. Went back to the doctor 2 days later because the pain (which is constant) had spread to my pelvic/groin area. I was sent for a full abdominal ultrasound and x-ray to look for kidney or bladder stones. Everything all clear. I was then referred to an early pap smear (where I am from pap’s are only done every 2 years).
Pap smear came back HGSIL CIN2 CIN3 CIS then HPV came back as type 16 positive. Since the results I have experienced the weirded period of all time where my tampon was soaked with clear fluid within 30-60mins after inserting, low grade fevers at night time, still constant pain in my side, pelvis and upper right leg and a lot of nausea.
I went for my colposcopy and biopsy today; I actually expected smooth sailing and no pain or fear... how wrong I was. Everything was fine until the doctor applied the solution to my cervix and warned some people find it irritating (which I didn’t). After a small bit probably seconds the doctor let out a huge sigh and said, “Well you will need further treatment the results will be in on Wednesday so I need to see you then to discuss the results” the two nurses then looked at each other and became very different in their demeanour towards me. Even the doctor who is actually always quite cold and straight to the point totally avoided eye contact and gave me no other feedback. She actually ran out the room passed me half naked. The biopsy hurt A LOT! I bled like crazy, literally when I stood up it felt like a flood of blood came rushing out onto the floor down my legs. She did take 3 punch biopsies from 12, 5 and 9o'clock in her words, so maybe that is normal?! (don't get me started on pads! How did people survive before?)
Basically I would love some feedback of what to expect from the biopsy result consult and how to interpret the doctors/nurse reactions today? Also something I am still unclear of is if the biopsy can diagnose cc or do I still need to go for LETZ to find that out? I have already diagnosed myself with stage 4 cc in my head after their reactions so anything other than that would be great. Also any questions that you felt you missed in your appointments, I am writing a list! This doctor probably will wish she could make me run past her naked to get out of all of them
I am trying to stay positive but with as you probably know it’s near impossible when you’re just waiting.
