I've lurked for the past few weeks and I have to say this site is amazing. I found reading everyone's stories reassuring.
i had cervical erosion and polyps years ago, the erosion was quarterised? And the polyps I was told nothing to worry about at a colposcopy when I had moderate cell changes four/five years ago, then my first smear since being under normal screening and one clear smear comes back high grade dyskaryosis. I was taken back in for colposcopy within fourty eight hours of results at 6.30 (appointment was last of the day), on a period. The consultant admitted that it they had discussed it was a priority to see me quickly even though I was on my period because my sample smear had come back high grade and there were endocervical cells in the mix? A bit freaked out! Anyway she smeared on the iodine and it looked clear but she could see under the microscope the endocervical cells in the centre of the canal. Then she got me off and said a large section would need to be removed for a biopsy of the canal under ga. whilst she was writing out the forms for admittance I asked how long the appointment for op would take and she said she'd marked it under priority as urgently urgent! I'm now sinking inside at this point. Fast forward to my colposcopy and the consultant decided she would do a large lletz and a womb (endometrial?) biopsy, she would talk afterwards about what she'd done. After my op the consultant had gone and my nurse said I would get a letter in the post and be seen in six. I asked if womb biopsy was taken she said no. I got upset and explained it was in the plan, she went away and came back saying she'd spoken to the consultant on the phone and they had biopsy of womb as well. I asked if the op went ok and how the surgeon felt it all looked and the nurse just said there wasn't that much information on my discharge notes but sure it was fine. I feel something's not right as she didn't come to see me after but just got the nurse to use a basic discharge note to tell me How it had gone.
if your still with me on this saga - thank you :-). I guess what I want to know is why did the surgeon/consultant not see me after? Will I never know her thoughts on my insides (had bleeding and pain during sex in last couple of months)? And also could these glandular cells have been there years ago when I had other problems but were simply missed? Also is large loop a preference over cone biopsy for glandular cells? I thought it was the other way until I came round from my op! Very confused and worried , any suggestions, clarification gratefully received xx
