Worried about having my operation for CIN 3 in the morning.

I have my operation in the morning and I am so worried with my anxiety. I havent been well to start with for a couple of month. Just not feeling normal. Temperaturebbelly being for a long time and generally feeling unwell. Feel like there's something wrong with me more than just CIN3 of my cervix. I am so worried about being under anastetic and not being in control. Scared I won't wake up or I will be in pain afterwards. I wish i didnt suffer so bad from health anxiety. I still have some pink bleeding or brown discharge not often but this also worries me as it has been a couple of weeks since my biopsy I am then worried about infection. Feel like nurses don't listen to your problems when i try to explain them. Do i just go hospital in the morning and explain everything to them see if they listen as it's down as an urgent operation and that's why it hasn't been canceled through my temperature being high. 😕

Hi

I think it will be best to get it over and done with if at all possible. Because you are so nervous you probably will feel ill whenever you have it done. Do tell the nurses how you feel when you get to the hospital.

I am sure you will be fine and not get any problems from the op.

I will be thinking of you and hoping it will all be over soon and that you will then feel much better.

Very best wishes.

Thank you Kim. I really wish i didn't have to go through this and that I didn't worry so much or over think it all. I just want to make sure i have all answers i need from the surgeon tomorrow before I even let them touch me. I just worry more because I am so unwell but I know i need to have the operation as they have put it as urgent and hurried it up. Been going through all this anxiety for to long now im worrying that if I'm unwell will it cause complications xx

Hi

If you are unwell due to all the worry and anxiety it will not cause any complications.

I hope you have had some sleep and that you get it over and done with soon.

You will then feel much better I am sure.

Let us know how you are when it is all over.

Very best wishes.

Hi kkimm. I unfortunately didn't have the operation done as they refused to put me under anaesthetic due to my temperature being so high so I now have to wait for an appointment being sent through the post again. Have to go to my drs to see whats causing my temperature to be so high and get medicine so I'm well enough to have the operation xx

Hi

That's a shame, never mind you can try to forget it for a while until your appointment comes through.

I hope you feel better soon, it is probably a virus of some sort.

Yeah i had been feeling unwell for a couple of weeks. I quit smoking and had a cough also on and off upset tummy and fever about 2 weeks ago so could be all that still in my system. Alot of it has been going around my work colleagues have all been off work with the sickness. Just hope I get my temperature sorted and get it all over and done with. I just still don't understand why I'm still ha in a small amount of bleeding daily due to the biopsy its been a while since having it now but every time I'm try talk to them about it they just say that's why they want to do the procedure. But I know it's not the cells causing the bleeding i was fine untill the biopsy didn't have any bleeding what so ever xx

🙂 It’s a natural reaction to be anxious and apprehensive before a general anaesthetic, and feeling unwell can’t be helping. There can’t be many people who haven’t experienced similar thoughts. Medical staff should be able to reassure you before the procedure, because they will want you to be as calm and relaxed as possible. And, don’t worry, if necessary you will be given adequate pain relief.

The procedure you’re having should be straightforward, and I hope you start to feel a lot better very soon🙂

Thank you wobblybee. I just cant wait for it all to be over with and hope they can reassure me when I get to hospital. The hospital I had my pre-op at were no help and just shrugged their shoulders at my questions and assumed I should know and not be asking questions about my produre. They looked down on me as if I was stupid. I am just hoping that the hospital i am having the procedure done at that it's much better with care. I will also be making sure I ask every question possible before consenting to anything. Thank you once again. X

Hi there, it is definitely normal to feel anxious especially having an op and having questions. Before my procedure for CIN3 removal (legs in stirrups and consultant about to give an injection inside of me 🙈) I pulled out a list of questions that I had and wanted them answered before they went ahead with anything. At no other point before the procedure did I get the chance to ask these questions, it all seemed a rush to get me in and for my CIN3 to be removed. Which I totally get. If left, it could have resulted in something far worse. But i had questions about fertility and health and I wanted them answered. It was hilarious pulling my A4 sheet of paper out, the consultant looked stunned, but she needed to answer them for me. It's my body and I needed to make informed decisions. The procedure went really well, I didn't feel a thing, not even the first anesthetic injection, and I was lucky enough that in my follow up smear, all was good and I went back to 3 yearly smears. Ask to speak with who ever is doing your surgery before so that they can listen to your concerns and give you answers. I would have thought they would do some checks in any event. Prior to my diagnosis for the CIN3 i had felt run down for over a year, kept getting colds and generally unwell. I have no idea if it was linked in any way. Good luck and I hope all goes well with your op.

Hi Annie. I havent had my operation yet as I had a temperature and they didn't want to put me to sleep not knowing what was causing my temperature as if its infection it could have made it worse. I spoke with them and they reassured me and went through all long term effects. I am not as anxious but guarantee I will be when I get me letter sent through for me to go back and have it done. Thanks for the reassurance. It does need doing and the sooner the better. Wish they had been able to do it and that it was all over with by now xx
