Sorry, I know this probably has been covered 100000 time on here but I’m at work and can’t scroll back.
I had a smear, then referral for colposcopy due to ‘abnormalities’.
Went for my referral a week later. I hate to be ‘dramatic’ but the woman before me came out crying so I knew it was going to be bad.
The nurse informed me I had severe abnormalities that were higher in the cervix than what is normally detected on a smear and that’s why I was sent for colposcopy.
Colposcopy was fine then she took biopsies and I honestly thought I was going to faint after so I had to lay down for ages.
When we sat down I noted on her screen it said CIN 3. She said the abnormalities are severe and she wanted to book me in for treatment.
Then she left and came back an said she would rather book me in to be asleep for a loop treatment. She said its ‘probably’ not cancer and if it is its very very early stages. So I’m feeling like it ‘probably’ is and she just said that so I wouldn’t have a mental breakdown.
Is it normal to been referred for a loop without any biopsy results being returned yet? Because she made it sound like I’ll have the loop in 2 weeks or so, and I’m presuming my biopsy results won’t be back by then.
What does it mean for the abnormalities to be higher in the cervix? Cancer?
If it is cancer, will I need a hysterectomy? Will they check for ovarian, bowel etc just incase?
My fiancé thinks i’m being pessimistic but I as soon as I got the letter I knew it was going to be bad news. Am I right to be so paranoid?
