I’m new to this site and am a little confused, dazed and worrying a little about the results of my biopsies.
18th October I had my smear, heard nothing for a month - rang to get update on 18th November to hear not processed yet! 2 weeks later I have a letter saying I have irregular cells and to go to hospital to have a colposcopy and Possible biopsy (today).
I had no idea what to expect as letter didn’t say much other than the date and time of my appointment. As soon as I walked into the room I was asked to sit down and the nurse (don’t actually know who or what she was-colposcopist?) said “right, you have what we call high-grade dysplasia and you need treatment, we would like to do a LEEP today!” I had no idea what that was so she explained it to me by drawing on a diagram, I didn’t like that idea! She then asked me a few questions... when my last period was, how many children I have when was my last smear etc. I explained that during my smear, I had my IUD out at the same time because we want to try for another baby... she advised to wait until after the treatment.
It was then she offered the laser treatment because I want to have another baby. The only thing is... I stopped listening to what she was saying... now I don’t know...
1. how long I’ll be waiting for my results for the biopsies
2.how long I will be waiting for the appointment for the laser treatment
3.what the results of the biopsies will tell me
4.what happens after the laser treatment
5.how long I have to wait after the treatment to try for a baby!
If anyone has some answers or similar stories they are willing to share it would be very much appreciated as I’m freaking out a little with just the fact she said high-grade dysplasia!
I want to freak out but feel really stupid because I haven’t got cancer it’s just I have pre-cancerous cells.
Am I overreacting?
Sorry for the long message but I’m freaking out a little.
Thanks in advance,
