Been a while since i posted on here after having CIN2 / Severe high grade pre-cancer back in 2015.
I received the dreaded letter from my GP in September 2016 advising my smear test was due. When i called up to make an appointment the soonest date they could give me was December 28th 2016 which was a bit of a shock but i had to accept it as apparently our nurse only works 3 days per week and was busy with flu jab appointments. On the morning of December 28th i received a text message from the surgery advising the nurse had called in sick and i needed to rearrange my appointment.
The next available appointment was January 20th. I waited and attended, then anxiously waited for over three / four weeks for results. After chasing the surgery repeatedly, i was then advised that my smear test had been lost in the lab, and that i would need to book another appointment and have the test done again.
The next available appointment was March 21st, and i’m still waiting for results over 4 weeks later. . .
Has anyone else experienced this? I’m worried that my initial test is now 8 months overdue, which is a long time if there is anything wrong. No one seems to be bothered or have any urgency in helping to chase things up.
It’s been the longest wait ever!
