Smear test, bloods and referral for a scan all in one day!

Hi guys. 

So I had my normal run if the mill smear test booked in today.. had the normal chat before had about how my period has been, and problems, that sort of thing. I explained that my period hasn't been grate over the last few months, more of a dark brown stingy sort of thing going on.. not very nice, lower back pain, discomfort during and after sex with spotting.. it all got very serious after that.. had the smear test done, was very uncomfortable, the nurse wasn't happy, (asked me to cough during, that was a first!) 

Anyhow, she got me booked in with the Dr 2 hours after.. 

The Dr then examined me, she sent me for bloods straight away, has arranged for an urgent scan and wants me to go back on Wednesdays to talk about my blood results!!!!

 

Silly question, but... Should I be worried? 

It's all just happened so fast.

Hi Olivia, 

They may have sent you for a scan just because of some of the symptoms you mentioned. I didnt have a smear but due to symptoms that I had they sent me for a Colposcopy at the hopsital (They made me cough during this). I had similar symptoms to you and my results all came back fine if that gives you some reassurance.  At least you know whatever happens that you will be getting it all checked quickly Happy

Did they tell you what they were checking in your blood?  Due to my symptoms I had a blood test done to check my hormone levels. 

I hope this has helped slightly.

Ok, that's good to hear. The Dr didn't say, it all got very quiet and searios after she checked me.. the whole mood changed I have had cancerous cells burn off before, that was 4 years ago.. maybe it's just that again it's just all very rushed so it panicked me, 

 

Thank you for replying x

I understand why and how your feeling. They are probably just been more cautious too due to your previous experience. Let me know how you get on Happy
