First of all this site is amazing to show that you are not the only one! It has really helped to put my mind at ease.
If anyone has the time to read this and shed some light it would be really appreciated as I feel a bit lost ...
I had my first smear (25) in November that showed a moderate abnormal result. I was sent for a biopsy within 10 days and the results returned inconclusive. I returned once more for a biopsy and they chose to do a loop treatment at the same time. When the results arrived they advised me that quite a large amount had been taken. This sample was split into 5 segments and each one showed either CIN3 or high grade CGIN. I was referred for a 2nd loop treatment but had to wait 3-4 months to allow the scarring to heal. I had this treatment done 2 days ago and the lovely screen they show you had evidence that there was still something not quite right. The nurse has advised me that the CGIN means that it is very deep in the tissue of the cervical canal which causes it to be a bit harder to treat. She explained that if this sample shows the same degree of high grades then I can not have a third as it can comprimise being able to carry a child (I have no children and do wish to one day). However, if all is ok then I have a check up at the hospital every 6 months for 5 years.
My query is if the results do come back showing that the CGIN is still present and I cannot have a third loop then what next? I'm trying to stay positive and hope like hell that all of this is still at the precancerous stage but surely not doing any sort of treatment will evidentually cause the high grade to become invasive? What are my options if I am still in the precancerous stage and what are the chances of being able to start a family at some point? Also, on a more negative note, are the results from the first loop treatment 100% accurate or should I be preparing myself for even worse results to come?
I really would love to have children one day but if that could put my health at risk by denying treatment then obviously I have no option but to do what is needed (eg hysterectamy) but is that really the only way I can get rid of the CGIN fully? Also, is there any time scale as to how quickly the CGIN actually progresses to actual cancer?
Any advice and info would be such a great help.
