i have any just joined this site, I decided to make the leap as I have spent too long this morning on the Internet diagnosing myself with incurable cancer! So I'm doing something more proactive instead.
my story is that I am 45 years old, had two borderline smears, negative for HPV. I experience slight bleeding after sex , summer 2014 which the nurse at my GP surgery said was probably down to the fact I had a bout of thrush and was therefore sensitive. I was tested for STI's and a swab taken, all normal, and that's when I had another smear that was borderline.i was then referred to my local hospital for a hysteroscopy.,Colposcopy and Lletz if needed. this was all carried out on 5th March 2015. After the procedure one of the nurses looked at my notes and said that is was NAD, no abnormalities detected for my womb and cervix. I was also told that had used the Lletz procedure on a tiny section. I then asked another nurse who was in the room, as I Had had general anaesthetic and she too said they hadn't found anything. As you can I imagine I Was relieved, and in all honesty I didn't expect them to find anything either. So when yesterday I came home to a letter inviting me to return to the hospital to the outpatients department in 4 weeks, i was filled with a sense of dread. The NHS don't invite you back to tell you all is well? the letter does not explain anything just tells me where to go, plus there is that section that says you can bring a friend along to go into the consulting room if you wish. I read that as they are going to give me bad news. Well, that's all my anxiety down on paper, well, some of it! The hospital I am going to is PRU Farnborough. Is there anyone out there who has had a similar experience? I will phone the hospital hopefully tomorrow to see if Incan find out more and put an end to self diagnosis of doom.
