Hi I suffer from panic attacks for ten years and haven't had a smear for 13 years untill a few weeks back and has come back high grade and hpv I'm so scared I have cancer as I had pre cancerous cells 1997 but had a smear done 2001 and all ok but since my panic attacks I didn't get out but have got much better as my son had to have open heart op and that kicked me up the bum to get out ! I have been told that a local can cause my heart to race when injected ?!?
I have just experienced a similar outcome to my smear test and I have pre-cancerous cells inside my Cervix. You will no doubt need to have a Colposcopy and according to the Consultant I saw yesterday even high grade abnormalities are a long way from Cancer. Let us know how you get on xx
Am worrid about the pain of it all to be honest have got apointment for 25th . My heart pounds with panic attacks as it is :( x
hi Panda i suffer with panic attacks too, when i spoke to my doctor she prescribed me some disapagne excuse the spelling, to relax me before and during the colposcopy. She told me to take 1 in the evening the day before, 1 in the morning of the day and 1 right before examination. since being told i have high grade i have been a wreck, i have two young children and i am seriously struggling with every day life, im trying to cope with it all its so hard waiting.
i wish you all the best for whatever happens next let us know how you get on.
