got my appointment letter this morning im going for my colposcopy on monday morning, i did phone to tell them that i will be on my period but they said i should still attend, i assumed that it would be difficult to see anything clear enough if im on my period, has anyone had experience of this?
thanks in advance x
well i went for my colposcapy 3 weeks ago, the consultant took a biopsy, i have had a call this afternoon to say the consultant has got my results & would like me to go tommorow to discuss
i am thinking that 24 hrs notice for my appointment means all is not well so wondering what to expect tomorrow afternoon?
i was kinda on the no news is good news vibe until today :-(

I just wanted to send a big hug your way. I know what it's like waiting on news, then not being sure if no news was better than some news from Dr. But all I will say is try not to read in to it too much at this stage. There is no point getting worked up before you know what the Dr has to say. Easier said than done. If you are worried about the appointment then take someone with you to support you. It still does not mean you have cancer and it might just be that they found some abnormalities that they would like to check out further.
Good luck for tomorrow and remember that if you need someone to talk to or support then come onto the MacMillan page. Add me as a friend if you want to :) x
thankyou, i am trying to remain calm (i suspect the glass of chardonay is helping) hehe
cancer seems to haunt my whole family! however i shall take tomorrow as it comes, and be thankful that i only have to wait 24 hours for my appointment
thanks again for your reassurance xx
just got back from my appointment, i have early stage cancer & will be having an appointment soon to discuss surgery
i must say after the initial shock i feel a great sense of releif, after all the worry & waiting
im very lucky also that my family is complete
im expecting a call on monday so hopefully things move quickly

hi, no the consultant did't say what stage and it never occured to me to ask, but she has said i will proberbly have a hystorectemy as i have had my children.
is a trachelectomy similar? i guess ill have a better idea about things at my next appointment but i will have done what ever is recommended the consultant said i would need no further tests, so i assume i wont need an mri/pet?
im pleased that you are both recovering well it is very comforting to know im not alone, thankyou
