I received a call this morning saying I'd been referred to gynaecology following my smear test. I don't know what the results were or what exactly the tests are that I'm having as I haven't received the letter yet and they couldn't tell me anything over the phone. I've also been experiencing abnormal bleeding between periods... not every month, perhaps 1 in 3 or 4... for the last year at least. I recently went to the doctors about this and they found no sign of infection and no fibroids etc when they did an ultrasound so now I'm really scared that this symptom plus an abnormal smear must be cancer.
Can anyone tell me how much detail you get in the referral letter, e.g. will they be able to tell me already how severe the cell changes are and what tests will be done? The waiting is driving me mad and it's only been a day!
Also if anyone has any experience of an abnormal smear and irregular bleeding that wasn't cancer it would be nice to hear about, as I don't know if it's possible that it could be anything less sinister :(
Thank you everyone
