So after I had my smear it came back with high risk abnormalities, and I was referred for a colposcopy.
Wednesday just gone I had my appointment and now I'm more worried than I was before.
The lovely doctor and nurses reassured me that the whole procedure was routine and they weren't looking for cancer just the precancerous cells which they'd be able to remove there and then with the loop procedure. Ok I thought, I can handle that. The infected cells would only be the size of the tip of my little finger.
Tso I sat back and relaxed right up to the point when the doctor said the infected area was too large to remove via a loop because if she did she'd be removing a large area of my cervix and that would affect my ability tto have children. Ok it's safe to say I was mortified!!
She did a punch biopsy and said id have to see a consultant to discuss the best course of action. After I get my results in 3 weeks.
Not quite sure how I got out of the hospital I was in a daze and floods of tears by the time I got home.
Is this cancer? Should I be worried? I'm only 33 and never had children and now I'm really panicing that that's it?!?
I've googled stupidly but thought a forum was a more mature approach.
I've got no systems relating to cervical cancer that I know of, no bleeding which I believe is the main one.
I need you all to be honest..... :-(
