I had one 12 years ago, have had a colposcopy today, and two biopsy's taken.

So if a I need to have one can it be done a again? the last one was done under general with a knife.

LargeGlassofRed Thu 03-Jul-08 20:09:34

oh thank god,

thought it was only me! how far apart were they?
or all this year?
were they all done with a knife?

TheOriginalXENA Thu 03-Jul-08 20:11:09

First was five years ago and then last year and then exactly a year later.

TheOriginalXENA Thu 03-Jul-08 20:12:19

sorry that was all jumbled!

TheOriginalXENA Thu 03-Jul-08 20:13:33

Did they give any indication of how severe it is?

LargeGlassofRed Thu 03-Jul-08 20:16:51

thank you feel better already,
in my head jusy couldn't imagine how they would take a large cone shape out again!

Does it grow back, I remember when I was preg, I was always 3 cm as I thought the cervix does't close as well?

So sorry being thick how do they take it again?

TheOriginalXENA Thu 03-Jul-08 20:20:02

I am not sure what they do. (although I am sure it has been explained).
I think one of the procedures I had was not a cone but a cheese?? loop. The reason the last one was done under a GA was because there is less (insert correct word for cervix tissue).

thanks xena, you know when your lying there with your legs in the air,
and they say
'do you have any questions?'
why does your brain go blank? grin
