I am very worried that I am going to get a call or a letter in the next few weeks to tell me I have cc. I cannot stop thinking about it.
I had an abnormal smear and had colposcopy & lletz treatment. Cin 3 and HPV were detected. The letter from the consultant said that the treatment would normally be sufficient, and to re attend for a smear in 6 months.
In the 6 months since this treatment more abnormal cells grew and were detected at my follow up smear. The consultant says these were Cin2.
Is it normal for these to grow again so quickly? Is it an aggressive strain of HPV that causes the speed of growth? I didn't ask what type I had.
I've just had further lletz treatment for this second occurance last week. The consultant says if further cells grow a third time and my family is complete (thankfully it is) she would recommend a hysterectomy.
No one has mentioned the word cancer yet, but I am terrified that is what is coming next. Would they consider a hysterectomy to deal with recurring abnormal cells as a preventative measure? It seems extreme.
Everyone here that has been through a diagnoses of cancer is so brave, but I am not sure I am the same sort of person and feel very negative and worried about it all. I know this is not a good quality or character trait to have, and probably isn't that helpful on a forum like this, but I am being completely honest here.
