Hi all,

I am so confused, I had a full hysterectomy 6 years ago because I had cancer of the womb.

I have been going back to my gp for yearly vault smears but 6 months ago there were borderline changes, got another test last month and was told that because I had two tests that came back I have to have a colposcopy.

Went for this today and doc says cannot have this test, cannnot have the treatment as I dont have a cervix. She also told me that I should of been brought back to my gynecologist every year for a check but was never called. Think this maybe cos he retired and there has been several replacements since, and I just got lost in the system.

So I was sent for a test I cannot have, discussed a treatment I cannot have and not called for exams I should of had annually.

Needless to say I have concerns about the competence of our health system and whether I am ok or not.

A colposcopy is done on a cervix. You no longer have a cervix. Have your gynecological follow ups down by a gynecologist and not a General Practitioner and you should have a clearer understanding of what is going on with you.
