I'm new to this site but saw a poster in my Colposcopy waiting area last Thursday so as I'm feeling horrendously low, scared and confused I thought I'd give it a try.
I had my first smear request letter at the beginning of April and attended 5 days later. My results arrived last two weeks ago with severe CIN 3, and had my colposcopy treatment last Thursday. The DR was lovely but what has plagued my mind ever since is the fact he told me if I had'nt had the treatment my CIN 3 would of turned to cancer. I am terrified of receiving my biopsy results (2-4 week wait!!!!) And have been suffering the abnormal heavy bleeding and clotting since my treatment.
I went to my GP today who, I feel, has 'poo pooed' away my symptoms and prescribed me some tablets to stop my bleeding. I just feel so mentally and emotionally low since my treatment and often find myself crying randomly throughout different points of the day. I suffer from minor bi-polar and not sure if this is whats causing my anxiety towards treatment and waiting for results.
I feel blessed that I received my smear request letter at 24 yrs and 6 months and not waited until I turned 25! Has anyone got any advice for me regarding calming my anxiety and what possibilities I have at receiving a clear negative biopsy result - I know your not DR's but just wanted to know what the chance/percentage is if there is such a thing!
Thank you xxx
