Firstly a massive thankyou to Debbie at JCCT who we spoke to yesterday morning, after which the big black cloud was lifted and we both feel really positive about events to follow.
HTwo weeks ago I visited my GP having experienced regular bleeding between periods and during intercourse. Following an internal inspection she told me that she would refer me to the Hospital as urgent for follow up tests, and that I would be seen within ten days, but not to worry !! As promised, I was booked in to see the Oncologist at 10 a.m. last Friday. She was lovely and very reassuring, but said that I needed a Colposcopy, and she would book me in for a full scan, and also the bladder and bowel checks under GN. I was with my husband and in a total mess by now, and she kindly offered to phone through and see if they could fit me in for a Colposcopy while we were there. They managed to see me staight away, and again the staff were brilliant, and I had two samples removed for biopsy tests. I was advised that I would be contacted to return for the results within one week. Since my GP appt I have lost a stone, and have had sleepless nights, but I must say again that speaking to Debbie on your helpline was not only very informative, but massively reassuring. Thank you so much. I will keep you posted with the results. Diane B. x
