Hi there :)
First time I’ve used anything like this so please bear with me!
Hoping for some advice in regards to my first cervical screening I received 22nd December 2018..
As a busy single mum of two children aged 3 and 9 (9year old born with multiple health problems and disabilities) I’ve been putting off my cervical screening since my 25th last year (yes naughty I know) however due to bleeding pretty much constantly for 6 weeks I finally bit the bullet and found the time to get myself to the doctors over it where they did my screening at the same time..
nurse who did it didn’t really say much except that she would refer me to hospital as is protocol and I would receive a letter with my appointment.. which came right between Christmas and new year stating an urgent referral had been made and to attend my colposcopy on the 3rd of January less than two weeks after I’d had my screening..
I attended the colposcopy on the 3rd in which she mentioned mass tissue growth and high cell changes and asked me some questions such as had I had any weight loss recently? Yes actually I’ve gone from a 10/12 to a 6 I’d put down to being a very busy stressed mummy.. have I been tired more than usual? Well again I’m a busy mum of two and my eldest was born very poorly and requires two different machines over night aswell as lots of other cares so I’m always tired.. have I had any pain in my back or pelvis? Yes actually I’ve been going backwards and forth to the doctors for well over a year with back pain that they can’t seem to work out and just assume it will go on it’s own but after well over a year it’s just got worse to the point it’s waking me up every 4 hours in the night where the painkillers are wearing off and I have to take more just to ease it to sleep again.. without painkillers within 6 hours the pains so bad I can barely move at all..
So she decided to do some biopsy’s and gave me an appointment there and then to go back and see her in person exactly two weeks to the day for the results?
Should I be as concerned as I am about how fast this is all being pushed through and the fact she wants to give me these in person?
Has anyone else had this experience?
Sorry for the very long post and thanks for any replies in advance :)
