Im hoping somebody can shed some light or offer any advice.
I attended colposcopy clinic 12 days ago after my first smear came back showing severe high grade cell changes.
When i arrived the lady said she would be performing the Lletz procedure as part of the examination but once she actually examined me she said 'IT' (whatever IT is) was more extensie than she hought it would be and she could see 'IT' had spread to my vaginal walls and up through my cervix and I needed to be referred to a Gynae Oncologist. She discussed several procedures with me but said i would definitley need a GA rather than the LA she offered originally. She was lovely but completley terrified me by saying things were alot worse than she would have expected and mentioned that seen as i have 3 children and have finished my family a hysterectomy could well be offered and it would be a thing to go away and think about.
Now i have done nothing but think about and panic!
Anyway, to cut a long stort short she took 4 punch hole biopsies and said she would get on with my referral to a larger hopsital.
I received a phonecall today to say that as expected my biopsy results have shown i need treatment and the new gynae oncology doctor will be intouch within the next fe days regarding my operation.
I have requested a report from the biopsy i had done but she said they don't use these results so they don't give them out. Apparently they only use the results of what is taken away during treatment. She said I won't find out any results until after my treatment under GA. Surely I should know what I am being treated for before I put myself on that operating table!
Surely i am not wrong here? I know they will send whatever they take away when I have the operation to pathology and use that but surely I should be told what the biopsies have shown so far?
any help would be great
