I'm waiting for the results of my biopsies that were taken during my colposcopy last week (Thursday the 30th) and I feel like I'm going round in circles worrying myself!!! It's the not knowing that's scaring me, and having to wait 4-6 weeks is torture.. I understand that the biopsies have to go through testing procedures and what-have-you, but why do some people only have to wait for 3 weeks and others have to wait for up to 6? Is it a lottery based on where you live and which NHS you belong to?
I guess I'm concerned because my smear suggested mild dyskariosis in November, I had to wait for almost 6 weeks for a colposcopy, only for the hospital to cancel it the day before (because they'd forgotten the Dr was on holiday!!!!) and postpone it by another 3 weeks.. :( by the time the Dr did the colposcopy she said my dyskariosis was moderate. So what happens to the cells in the next 5 weeks?! Do they carry on getting worse?
Just at a bit of a loss.. I'm trying to prepare myself for any eventuality, but when the Dr rushes out at the end of your colposcopy telling you "I'm not going to discuss treatments with you until we know the results" it's like the least helpful thing ever.. I felt like I was on a conveyor belt, as they were running so far behind. No thought was given to how much I'd be reeling at having to have biopsies taken. It might be completely normal to them, but it certainly wasn't to me. :(
How long did everybody else have to wait for their biopsy results? Has anyone else found that they've had more information about all things cervical from here than from the people who are supposed to be looking after our health? Does anyone have any ideas of how I can turn off my brain for the next 5 weeks?!
I'd be grateful for some happy thoughts... :)
