I had colposcopy a week ago after receiving an abnormal smear result (low grade dyskariosis with high risk HPV). The consultant said it looked like a very small area of mild changes and took two biopsies. He said it definitely wasn’t cancer and that he’ll write with the results in 4-6 weeks.
I also had a CT scan on Monday as I’ve been having a lot of health issues. My digestion isn’t working properly, I’ve lost weight to the point where my BMI would classify me as anorexic, get tired very easily. I was reassured by what they saw at colposcopy (I’ve also had a hysteroscopy which all looked normal) but I have a niggling fear that I do have cervical cancer, that it’s spread and that’s what’s causing my other symptoms. I’ve had pain in my hips and lower back for months.
I’ve already had endoscopy and colonoscopy to look my digestion issues, which were also clear. So I suppose the CT scan is going to give me an answer finally but I’m very frightened. I don’t know when or how I’ll get the results of that.
Surely no one is told they have mild cell changes at colposcopy which turn out to be invasive, advanced cancer?!
