Hoping for some reassurance.
having had back trouble for many years, I've recently (last 18 months) also had groin/pelvic pain which was attributed to my back. Over the the last couple of months, after one or two red flags, I felt that I needed to take up the smear test that had been offered in the last 12 months or so (can't quite remember how long ago letters came).
Smear test hurt slightly which was unusual and nurses reaction made me suspicious. Letter received shortly afterwards to say abnormal cells found and colcoscopy appointment would be sent through which it was a few days later. Then a second letter from GP arrived to say that they'd been trying to contact me by mobile/landline but 'strongly recommended' that I attend the hospital appointment. I rang GP and doctor phoned back to chat; he basically said that cells changes were quite marked and that I should prepare to have a biopsy at the colcoscopy appointment.
At colcoscopy, husband and I chatted to doctor (pre procedure) who said that they would be performing a LLETZ to remove 'bad cells' and womb biopsy to see what was happening and if necessary, would I consider a hysterectomy should the need arise! He mentions they've found abnormal glandular cells and that they need to do the womb biopsy to check that they are not from there?
Hubby was taken out to waiting room while I was taken through to procedure room. LLETZ performed and biopsy taken from womb and then doctor tells me that results from both will take approx 4 weeks and they will be holding an MDT meeting at the beginning of December to discuss a few cases and they will decide how to manage my situation and the best way forward type of thing.
i haven't been told of any grading of abnormality but I'm petrified as to why it all seemed to be planned out before they'd even examined me...
What is happening and why the repeated mention of hysterectomy before any results? It all sounds so serious... What happens now?
sorry for the long post, am so frightened X
