Hello beautiful ladies,
I hope you’re all having a great day. I came back from my colposcopy a few hours ago and I just wanted to share what happened incase it helps someone!
The two nurses who saw me were SO LOVELY. The procedure itself wasn’t anymore painful than a smear - it just lasted a tiny bit longer. Having received first smear results as severe and high-grade, I was preparing for the worst. I could see my cervix on the screen next to me - bizarre, but not grim!
She then took a biopsy, which wasn’t terrible AT ALL - just a teeny sting. When I asked her when she was going to do the biopsy, she said she’s just done it! (Which goes to show that it isn’t worth worrying about - but every woman is different I suppose) After the procedure was over, my nurse said that she can’t see anything cancerous, and my abnormalities aren’t as bad as my smear predicted - they were in fact mild.
I’m aware that the biopsy gets sent off for examination, but I was booked in for an operation next Tuesday, and she said this is to ensure the abnormalities, however mild or severe, are removed, and to also make sure that they haven’t spread. Has anyone every experienced this? I wasn’t recommended LLETZ or anything like that. I think the operation is laser - so I’m hoping nothing too serious.
I’m taking away good news from this. Please share any advice or similar experiences you’ve been through.
