I just wanted to say I have, since getting my smear result letter/colposcopy appointment letter through yesterday saying I have high grade dyskaryosis (first smear in 2012 was clear), been through what feels like the entire internet and obviously at first decided I definitely 100% have cervical cancer, linked back ANY type of symptom I've had in the past few years to it, etc. And then I found this forum. Have read a great number of posts and would just like to say thanks - it's really put my mind at ease. Though it is difficult to keep my mind from straying to "well it could be...", I feel much more calm having read about how frequently this comes up! I am still obviously bricking it a bit, but since having a read of some of your experiences I haven't been at all upset. I have my colposcopy booked for 29th April and my boyfriend, who has been wonderfully pragmatic, is coming with me.
