Hi ladies I hope you are all well, I want to start of with a huge thanks as this forum has been a huge help during my journey! il start by giving you my story
on the 18th June 2015 I went for my first ever smear test, thought nothing of it and shrugged that I'm only 25 all would be good.
14 days later I got my results saying I was high grade, day after I recieved my appointment for colposcopy (still unsure of spelling please bare with me!)
that was yesterday I was told I was moderate but still fell under high grade (makes no sense say it's moderate would have saved the extra stress but that's a different discussion lol!)
the advice I was given was not to have sex for 4 weeks no tampons for 4 weeks and no heavy lifting for 4 weeks! Does that sound correct? As I'm a waitreas deep cleaning and closing the restaurant are part of my normal duties carrying trays of glasses and clearing plates are normal duties (they get very heavy! and can struggle carrying them on a normal day!) should I avoid this where possible? Work are very understanding.
they have done a biopsy I'm not 100% sure if it's biopsy or if it's the offending cells or if that's the same thing! They said the results are taking 6 weeks. What are they looking for? I know I need a smear in 6months and depending on the results it will either be at gp surgery or the hospital.
I I know I should of asked the nurse these things but I was so nervous about the treatment ahead (sorry should have said I had lletz) i just didnt think of these questions.
Thanks in advance x
