Hi to anyone who is out there,
My name is Rosanna I am 28 and I am so so scared. I recently had my second smear test (first one was all normal at age 25) and the nurse told me I had cervial ectropian/erosion but said it was not as big as some she has seen. One week later I recieved a letter telling me I had moderate Dyskariois! I went in to turmoil and sobbed, I have just watched my mother die a slow and painful death due to cancer and it was all too much!
I re-read the letter again and again and the only thing that was standing out was the word CANCER, infact it stated 'it is unlikely you have cancer but...' I was in such a state and immediatly started googling and reading all the horro stories out there.
I was booked in for a colposcopy 4 weeks later but just couldnt wait and begged for them to squeeze me in, thankfully I was given an appointment the following week- I had the colp and Diathermy loop excision/Lletz done at the same time. The doctor didnt even tell me he was going to do it just asked if I was feeling brave :( It wasnt too bad mainly just embarassing but everything went in a blurr. He handed me a piece of paper and said to expect the results in 8 weeks time.
I am totally stressed right now as you can imagine I really need to call my mum but she died last year I have started taking st Johns wort but to no avail.
It has now been 2 weeks since the Lletz and I am still getting watery discharge, I feel totoally alone and confused! What results am I getting in 8 weeks? What is going on? I thought the Lletz was a treatment not a diagnostic tool. I dont exactly know what to expect from these results.
I feel sad the Doctor went straight ahead with the Lletz after now reading about possible link to premature birth but also very happy as he may have saved my life.
As you may have noticed from my erratic writting style I am absolutly terrified - and no I dont share with friends I am not particulally open with privat ematters and have no other family.
I cant quite get my head around whats happened?
Should I be scared - What should I expect.
Thank you all for reading my story.
