I’ve just been for a cervical smear test, feeling very smug with myself cos I’d been putting it off (for years to be honest) as it had got so painful. I discussed everything with the nurse beforehand: previous painful tests, my ileostomy and the removal of large intestine, and that on the ct scan it had been noted that I had an “anteverted retroflexed uterus” (it tilts backward). This is why they had been so painful!
The nurse did say that as there was now more room inside, everything could have moved about, well it couldn’t be found 🔍!!
She’s referred me to the doctor, who’ll then refer me to a gynaecologist, what fun!! 🤪
I’m not feeling too worried as I hope that if there was any problem, it would show in ct scans or the regular blood tests?
On a lighter note: Apparently, according to the original ct scan, my ovaries are “unremarkable “! I think I take exception to that !!! 😂
Anyone had similar experience please?
