Had my 1st smear in Jan 17(aged 33) and results came back abnormal, referred to colposcopy which I attended in Feb 17 and had the lletz done there and then under la. I tecieved my results 4 weeks later by letter to say CIN3 removed with clear margins. I went for my 6 monthly smear in September 17 and within 2 weeks I had a letter saying I needed to go for another colposcopy. Went today and the doctor didn't really say much (maybe I should have asked) she did take punch biopsies. I asked her if I could opt for hysterectomy just with pre cancerous cells and she advised that if not clear after next treatment they would discuss.
The letter I recieved from the hospital with aftercare instructions states that I will receive an appointment letter with my results within 2 weeks, is his normal? I thought it would be another letter with results?? And why take biopsies this time as opposed to lletz again?
Thank you in advance
