"Still awaiting a follow up appointment"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I was seen by a lovely doctor back in March this year, regarding bleeding after intercourse and pelvic pain. I had biopsies taken and a smear test done and was told I would be sent a follow up appointment to discus further tests/treatment. The smear test came back clear but I am still waiting an appointment to find out what if anything the biopsies showed and what can be done for the pain/bleeding. I am still suffering lots of pelvic pain and still bleed on the odd occasion I can tolerate any kind of intercourse. It is almost 10 weeks since my first appointment and apart from a letter dated 1st April saying my smear was clear and that I would be receiving an appointment to attend the colposcopy, I have had nothing since. My GP doesn't seem to know what is going on either. Please can you tell me where I can find out my results and what happens next regarding any treatment. Many Thanks
