The post has finally arrived from the hospital, so I thought I'd finally find out properly what the results of my biopsy are. I'm gutted with the contents, it's just a standard letter To inform me of a new colposcopy appointment which is at the end of May!!!! It has no results and no indication of what the purpose of the appointment is. I've waited eight long weeks for this and it's driving me up the wall with worry.
how long is this going to take?
its my own fault I know for not attending my smears for the last few years. I went for a smear following heavy bleeding during sex and pelvic pain. The smear in January showed cin2 and I freely bled on contact. The colposcopy showed extensive lesions. I had expected to be treated there and then, but they said they didn't do that, so they took a number of biopsies. After weeks of waiting for a response I began phoning the hospital to get an indication of progress. I know it needs to be removed and I just want it over and done with. Two weeks ago I got my gp to look up my records, she didn't understand most of it but said that cin2 cin 3 was mentioned and I noticed it read that for gland involvement the response was yes. Do I really have to wait til the end of May just to go in and be told what they found and then have to wait several more weeks for an appointment? If they plan to do the treatment at this next colposcopy appointment surely they would inform me so I could be prepared? It's all just so vague n frustrating. Has anyone else been through this long drawn out process? I'm 45 and completed my family.
