Anyone had a cervical polyp removed?

    I'm going to have a small one removed next week. What can I expect? Do I need someone to come with me? I know I can't drive (it said that on the appointment letter) but will I be ok to walk or bus it? (I live quite near the hospital)

    Most importantly, will it hurt???
    Thanks for any comments, not exactly worried but not sure what to expect

  3. I have previously had cells removed from cervix. Just felt dizzy for a while, didn't drive but got a lift home. Felt OK the next day, just like really bad period pains - I know polyp is bigger though (had one removed under a general from womb in January this year)

    the nurse says it's a small one, but obviously I haven't seen it, so I've no idea how small a small one is. I must have looked freaked out when she told me, because she kept saying "It's nothing to worry about, it's very common."
     
  6. I know but you do worry - it's someone cutting bits off you! In a "delicate" place ...

    Good luck, you will be fine - and milk the sympathy !!
     
  7. I had one removed without at my check up appointment. I went on my own. I had also parked my car about 1/2 mile away because I couldn't get onto the hospital car park. No-one said that it wasn't safe to drive etc..I was fine after.
     
  8. "without" being forewarned i.e. the nurse said to me 'You have a polyp - shall I remove it?' I agreed and it was done - there and then!

    Thanks Kookai, that's reassuring, Did they use any anaesthetic? In my letter they say it will be done under local.

    Well, I went to the hospital today and the polyp has gone! The dr said it's either dropped off or gone back inside, either way nothing to worry about. Turns out I was the 2nd polyp patient that morning who didn't have a polyp! It did mean I didn't get a cup of tea either.
    Thanks for all your support.

  11. I had a cervical polyp removed 2 years ago - went for an appointment to have it looked at & the consultant removed it there & then without anaesthetic!! It didn't hurt but it oozed for about 2 weeks.

  12. I suggest you phone your surgery, or wherever you're going and ask.
    Loads of information if you do a Google searh. [​IMG]
     
  13. the only number I have is for a referal booking centre (non-medically trained staff who can't tell me what will happen during my appointment.)
    I had a questionaire from them today so i think my appointment on monday will just be a connsultation
