I turned 25 at the end of June and attended my first smear test at the end of July. I fully expected everything to be fine, but a week later I got a letter saying my results had shown severe dyskaryosis and that I had to wait for another letter confirming my appointment for a colposcopy.
A few days later I received a phone call from the nurse at my local GP practice; she confirmed the smear results for me and told me the date, time and location of my colposcopy. I received a letter a few days later confirming this.
My colposcopy took place on August 17th. I had biopsies taken and bled so much I almost fainted - I have an ectropian which causes my cervix to bleed at the slightest knock anyway (this makes sex a bit weird/interesting). It took ages to get it to stop and the nurse had to apply a solution which gave me horrible period pain like feelings. I'd bled all over the table and the floor and was clearly going into shock, so the nurse refused to perform a LLETZ procedure under a local anaesthetic, as it would be too traumatic.
I received my biopsy results on Saturday (September 5th) saying they had found both CIN 1 and 2 and confirmed that I would have to have a LLETZ procedure under a general anaesthetic. I now have to wait for a letter with the date and time of my operation. I'm just wondering how long I should expect to wait for this? I'm also a little concerned because I'm moving in three weeks, so if I don't have my letter by then what's the best way to inform the hospital so they can send it to the correct address?
Thanks for reading :)
