Im new to this forum (and glad I came across it!) great way of sharing experiences and getting answers.
I was wondering if anyone else was treated straigh away at the colposcopy appointment and what their doctors said??
I had an abnormal smear (high changes) in December and got a relatively quick (at least I feel it was quick) appointment for another colposcopy 10th Jan.
I have had one before so sort of knew what to expect...
As i was on the infamous CHAIR she turned the screen and I could see what she was concerned about straight away, a lot of white ....
She said she didnt want to wait for the biopsy results and rather get rid of the cells straight away.
I am normally a fan of being proactive ... but i was a bit shocked.
So i got my 3 numbing injections into the cervix which was painful (i think I'm quite pain sensitive tho!) and was then earthed (strange feeling thinking about it)
She did her thing... which was quite uncomfortable at some points with the heat :(
and then took a biopsy and used this other "burny thing" to stop bleeding.
Having read across this forum i think she did the LEETZ thing? is it normal to have it done there and then at the colposcopy appointment??
I am now nervous about the results and the wait is driving me mad! (not being allowed to have sex does NOT help haha!)
I normally tell people that there is no need to worry as things will be what they will be and you cannot change that... but I'm really finding it hard to follow my own advice now!!
We dont have children ... but had started trying more actively... having PCOS does not help with that either!
pretty shit start to 2014!
Does being treated there and then mean its quite bad?? she was reluctant to really give me any answers and said i would get the results via post?
thanks in advance for any advice and/or sharing experiences.
