I have my colposcopy booked for 17th March and I really do not want to take the day off as holiday but at the same time I don't know how to approach it with my male bosses and explain to them why I require the whole day off as sick!?
At my colposcopy last year, I only had biopsies but I found them really painful and was in a state so I didn't go back to work but as it was a morning appointment I just rang in sick and explained I had had biopsies but didn't say where. This time it is at lunchtime and although I could do a few hours in the morning at work I won't be able to concentrate and I want to be able to shower etc. so I think it's easier to take the whole day off. I also do not know if I will be having treatment this time or not.
Any suggestions would be great! I wish we had a female member of staff we could talk to really :-(
Thank you :-)
