This is my first post though I have spent the last few weeks combing through posts for guidance/advice/reassurance.
I had my second smear on the 17th of March, was in complete shock when a week later I got a letter through advising that changes had been found and I had severe dyskaryosis. I went for my colposcopy last Thursday where I had a chat with the doctor and was advised they would do a biopsy and treat the abnormal cells while I was there. I am a huge baby and immediatly started crying and I had a lovely nurse who helped calm me down and held my hand! The doctor started to do the proceedure and then looked up and advised that there were too many abnormal cells to treat with a local anaesthetic so I would have to come back. They did my biospy still (which I found so uncomfortable and actually screamed out on the third sample) I then had a quick consulation and got all the leaflets about the LLETZ procedure.
I had a call yesterday and I am going to have the procedure on Monday the 20th. I am terrfied! I hate needles and generally find everthing so stressing. I was hoping people could give me a record of your own experiences (all the details) so I know exactly what to expect from arrival to going home. I have never had to go to hospital for myself and generally have been relatively healthy most of my life (28 years) and I am so scared. I have read so many horror stories of people not waking up or complications. I like to be prepared if I know what to expect I can ease my mind.
I appreciate any help and advise. I know this isn't the most pleasant of things to discuss so I really honestly appreciate anyone who can offer any advice.
