Quick update of my situ: - I Went for a coil fitting and had a smear at the same time (18 months late), erosion was also seen - result was high grade dyskariosis. I then had a colposcopy (3 weeks ago) and biopsies, during the procedure I bled heavily and the consultant informed me the erosion was large and ulcerated so I was given 2 lots of heavy anitbiotics and told to make an appointment in 3 weeks time where I may need further biopsies :-(
Well after much worrying and stress I went along today to my appointment and the consultant told me the results confirmed that mild and moderate (CIN1 and CIN2) cells had been detected (phew!!!) she didn't mention me having any more biopsies thank goodness. She said that because I had bled heavily when the biopsies were taken she would perform a loop under GA. Apparently I need a large area removing too as the cells (although small areas) are around the outside of my cervix whereas normally they are towards the middle...she told me it wasnt something she did very often but would hate to give me a local and then put me through the trauma of stitches if I bled again! She also told me that they could widen the 'area' to make it easy to remove without making me go through the discomfort. She was wonderful! She didnt have an free space until end of Oct, but she is going to try and get me in on the 9th Oct so I don't sit worrying for the next 6 weeks (I think she must have remembered the quivering wreck I was at the colposcopy!) She said she would remove the coil at the same time and that she would put another in 8 weeks after treatment to give me a chance to heal and for everything to go back to normal. I have seen other ladies on here say that they had their coils removed and replaced at the same time..........to be honest I don't mind the wait as I doubt I will be in the mood for a long time (he he), but maybe she was just being ultra conscious and professional about it all?
Anyway I can't begin to express the relief I feel, I know I still have to go through the loop and then wait for results following that........and I know I will probably worry until they confirm its all gone :-( but for the first time in weeks I feel almost 'normal' again and the stress bubble in my tummy has subsided.
I just wanted to pass on this update to other ladies who may be going through something similar, in the hope that it helps.
Thanks, Jac xx
