First smear at 24 on 11th Feb. Letter said abnormal results, no more detail. Colposcopy was yesterday (5th March). I called up the day before to rebook as I was on my period, they said it doesn't matter you are marked as urgent please come in (first worry!)
Staff were lovely but I'm a bit lost. I thought I asked enough questions but clearly not as when I got home I'm even more in the dark.
Before we even got started she said I will need treatment, no matter what she can see during the colposcopy procedure or what the biopsy comes back with. The only info I got on this was that there are two bits of skin and my abnormal cells are on the one that's hard to see and rare? "Annoying ones, that we won't know what they are until we get the biopsys back"
Whilst she's rooting around I said, is there anything obviously bad that you can see? "Not really" ME: "....!!"
She took two biopsys and afterwards there wasn't much discussion, she just said I'd get the results in a week. We had bants and I half joked 'Oh god, a week means it's bad doesn't it'. She then changed her mind to 10-14 days.
She gave me the leaflets and when I tried to ask for more info on what my abnormal cells are (to try and match up with the stories I'm reading on here!) - she pointed at the smear and biopsy grades and when I asked for a ballpark estimate, she drew a "H" in between moderate, severe, CIN2 and CIN3 but said again, that these are based on the other bit of skin not the one mine are on??
Can anyone make me feel less worried with a wonderful similar story that has a happy ending?
Also if it's bad bad, do I still only find out in a letter? When I get home to my empty flat? :|
