Hi all, I have posted previously but now getting very very anxious…
I had a smear on 26th October, was called in for an urgent colposcopy on the 9th November. Had LLETZ there and then with biopsy and the consultant said she would contact me within 2 weeks.
I was handed a leaflet at my appointment which told me I would have results within 4 weeks… 4 weeks passed and I heard nothing at all. I received a letter a couple of days later saying my results were going to be discussed at a meeting with pathologists.
This letter did not tell me when this meeting was or when I would hear back so I tried calling the sister’s number on the leaflet. I had to leave around 5 voicemails before I was finally able to speak to her, this was Wednesday the 9th December… She told me the meeting was the following Wednesday and that she would call me after it.
She didn’t call me so I called her that day and left another voicemail but she has still not got back to me and tomorrow will be 6 weeks since my colposcopy…
I’m so frustrated by this whole process, I would not have a clue what this was all for if it wasn’t for this forum, I don’t feel supported by the NHS at all.
Has anybody experienced this? Have you had a positive outcome from your biopsy results being discussed at a meeting? Or is it generally always bad news? I know nobody will have an answer to this one but why won’t anybody tell me anything, are my results so horrendous nobody wants to tell me?? Or is it a case of no news is good news?! Just needed to vent really, and a bit of hand holding
