I've had two colps previously with two/three biopsies each time. Each one ive found equally traumatic, invasive and really painful. I rang up the colp clinic this week to ask advice for how nervous I feel. Nervous isn't really the word actually, I won't allow them to take a biopsy this time without any form of sedation because of how traumatic I've found them previously. So on the phone the nurse said for me to see my GP and request diazepam. I went today and my GP flat refused on the basis that she doesn't agree with prescribing diazepam for such procedures as she doesn't know how i would react to it, and doesn't believe you should be on diazepam when you're having a procedure like that and are "vulnerable".
I understand her reasoning but I won't let them take one without anything. So where do i go from here. I can go for the colp but wont really know how much has changed without having a biopsy if i need one.
Has anyone ever been prescribed diazepam through their GP or through the colp clinic, or has anyone ever requested sedation for a biopsy? I know it's dramatic but actually people are given diazepam for colonoscopies so I don't really see how this is much different?
