I am 28 and had my second smear test a couple of weeks ago. My first 3 years ago was okay. My mum received a phone call today from the local women's hospital, they had tried to call me this week but hadn't been able to get hold of me. They told that I needed to go in on Monday to the colcoscopy unit. I tried to call them but couldn't get much sense or info out of the person on the phone and she wouldnt let me speak to a nurse. I only know what a colcoscopy is because a friend has had to have a few of them. No one has a even told me I will be having one, they just said to go in but I assume I am! I also have no idea what level my cell might be at. I'm very worried. I haven't had any abnormal bleeding but I have felt a little pain for the last couple of weeks in my lower left abdomen so now I am worried that is something to do with it but haven't read anywhere that that is a symptom. When I had my smear I had only finished my period a day or 2 before and the nurse said it wasn't really the right time to do it and it could show as abnormal, but she did it anyway as I was there. Is it possible that this could Be the reason?? I am just so worried I'm going to go and they will find severe changes or worse, is it normal.for them to contact by phone as I thought they would just write to me even if it was abnormal?! Thanks for any words of assurance or explanation of what is going to happen when i go in xx
I wrote the above last night. I have now jut opened my letter and it says high grade. I am absolutely terrified. How is got to high grade in 3 years??? Someone please help. I am petrified it could be cancer. This little pain I have had is worrying me so much.
