I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice ? First smear test came back with abnormal cells, biopsy taken showed CIN 2. It was a surprise as the smear showed low changes, but when the nurse had a look, a lot of cervix turned white with the solution. Had an appointment for the 17th of this month but it has been changed as the doctor/consultant I am seeing is off sick, so I have to wait until the third. The hospital has said to me that the nurse has said she cannot perform the procedure as it is out of her capabilities, my particular case. How concerned should I be about this ? Of course, more expertise is always good, but why is that needed if it’s a routine procedure ? Has any one experienced this ?
In regards to the treatment, how much does the needle hurt ? I have no pain tolerance and I am so scared, I didn’t do well with the biopsy and broke down halfway through. What should I expect ? I geared myself up for it being next week and the extra wait is causing me so much anxiety. I’m worried I’ll talk myself out of it.
