I've never really written on a forum before but have found this to be so much help from reading threads I thought i'd post my own.
I had my smear test on the 20th November as I was invited to my first screening at 24 and 6 months. I was shocked when the results came back as High Grade (severe) dyskaryosis. My initial thoughts were panic driven and I thought I was going to be told I had cancer. I was given a colposcopy appointment yesterday and I was again shocked, but this time at how little I was told during my appoinment.
All the nurses and doctor told me was that sometimes they don't agree with the initial results to would be just taking a biopsy to make sure they were correct and that they would then do the LLETZ treatment. What I don't understand is why they need to wait for the results if they are so sure they will need to do the treatment, especially as I know various people with the same results who had treatment at the same time as the colposcopy. In my opinion it is dragging it out even longer and giving it more time to get worse.
I have no idea what to think now as they didn't tell me anything remotely reassuring or tell me what they thought after completing the colposcopy.
Has anybody else had un-helpful nursing staff? I keep trying to think if they aren't doing treatment right away it can't possibly be as bad as I was thinking but then I can't shake the feeling that maybe they haven't done treatment because its worse than they thought and they have to wait to do a different treatment. This has all been brought on because the doctor and nurses yesterday told me literally NOTHING about my results and practially pushed me out of the room once i'd had my colposcopy.
I'm now just unsure what to think and know that waiting 4-6 weeks, especially over Christmas is going to be extremely difficult.
Sorry I just needed a place to vent! :)
