"Felt comfortable and at ease"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

I was told that I needed a colposcy after my smear showed borderline changes. The nurses doing the procedure were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. It wasn't any where near as bad as I was expecting. Unfortunately I had to have the leep procedure done at the same time but once again the nurses talked me through it and made me feel much better about the situation. Overall I am very satisfied with the experience. My only issue is that I never got told how long my results would take or if I even will get results (I'm presuming I do) and I had the procedure done about 6 weeks ago and I'm still waiting for them.
