I have had 3 abnormal smears over a 19 month period and got sent for colposcopy 3 weeks ago.
When I had my chat with the consultant before the actual examination he said I was just there as it was routine, I should not worry. He will just have a look and probably need to go back in 6 months. I had been worrying but this made me feel a lot better.
Examination wasnt the most pleasant experience but not as bad as I was expecting. Only thing is, he had a look around then sighed and said he wanted to take did actually want to take a biospy as he didnt like the look of something - alarm bells immediatly started going. Took a punch biopsy, then sat back again and told me that my cervix was swollen/puckered (no idea what a normal one looks like so didnt know what he was talking about) and if the biospy comes back "the way he thinks" I will need to get treatment twice??? The 5-6 week is really getting to me no matter how much I try and put it out of my head.
I have been suffering from severe cramps for weeks and horrendous lower back pain - the the point I have been in work in tears - I had seen a doctor about this seperatly and have been given pain killers and all sorts but was told even though I was refered for colposcopy they were treating it seperatly (this was before the colposcopy appt)
Im basically feeling a bit lost, scared and wishing I had asked more questions. Has anyone ever had the same kind of experience?
Im driving myself mad thinking its all linked,
