Hi Kat :-)
So sorry you are feeling so alone with your worries. I was reading just the other day that abnormalities in younger women tend to sort themselves out without any treatment and that is why doctors are reluctant to start cutting lumps out of your cervix too soon. I think that the reason for asking obvious questions to start with is to help you to relax and feel comfortable before the more difficult questions follow on. If the first question was a difficult one you had to think really hard about it might cause some people to get flustered.
What I think you need to bear in mind is that she was unsure whether or not there was too much blood for the smear to be any good. So that doesn't sound to me like a huge amount of blood. Then at your colposcopy you were told she couldn't see anything (out of the ordinary), which is also a very good sign. She has taken biopsies just to be on the safe side, because she doesn't want to miss anything invisible to the naked eye but to be honest with you, it's all sounding really pretty good.
I hope that helps to set your mind at rest a little :-)
Tivoli is correct, if there was something sinister, they would most likely see it during the colposcopy. And the abnormal cells return to normal in many cases in younger women too. However, regarding HPV, they should have told you if it is high risk (Hpv 16/18) or low risk. Does not matter now becasue most of us clear any hpv on its own. You will be fine, do not worry. When I had my first colposcopy, the doctor said he needed to treat me right there and then (LLETZ) as he could tell it was not normal (you can imagine how shocked I was!) and it came back as CIN2 + 3. It was painless.
Thanks so much for your replies and reassurance- I just think it's so easy to worry and fear the worst. I need to keep positive. X
Hi all so as above I went for my coloscopy on 10/1/15 where they took punch biopsies. I had a letter 4 weeks later saying that they hadn't found anything and they would send me a further letter with the histology of results.
so today, I have recieved a letter for an appointment for treatment and says that the results of the biopsies are in line with the smear result!
how can I be told I'm fine and then be told I need treatment?? It was the most shortest letter ever.....no explanation of what treatment will be carried out or how I will feel after.
can anyone shed any light on this for me- what will the treatment involve? Will I be able to return to work after? (I'm a teacher)
thanks so much kat x
