Sorry for the long post but I’m feeling a bit lost, and pushed from pillar to post with all this.
I went for my first smear in Nov '16 (I was still 24 at time) all seemed fine except for some spotting after.
Two weeks later my results came through with high grade severe dyskaryosis and high risk HPV positive. I was sent for a colposcopy just before Christmas. The consultant diagnosed CIN2/3 and took three biopsies to confirm. He was also slightly concerned by the HPV positive result as I had received the HPV vaccine at college.
The result from my biopsies took about 6 weeks to come through as they were discussed at the MDM at the end of January, these came back with low grade cell changes with infection and inflammation.
Went in at the beginning of Feb '17 for a second colposcopy, where once again the consultant confirmed CIN2/3 and took some swabs even though he could see no evidence of infection or inflammation, just saying something along the lines of better being safe than sorry.
Swabs came back normal 2 weeks later. Went in for my third Colposcopy in March '17, had my smear repeated although this time I bled quite heavily during the smear and my consultant was a bit concerned by this. The consultant once again said he could see an area he said was CIN2/3 and that they would treat this area by removing it not matter what the results of my smear where this time, as he felt with my young age, the high risk HPV positive and the fact I have been on the pill for close to 10 years due to very heavy and painful periods that this was the best thing to do seeing as none of my results where coming back matching each other.
Today I got my repeat smear results and everything is clear still with high risk HPV positive.
Since having my repeat smear done and getting the results my consultant has retired and I am now under another doctor who I have never met and who has never examined me and they have decided nothing should be done, but I have also been transferred to a different clinic without being notified I only found this out when the letter arrived with an appointment for six months time at a different hospital. I have been unable to speak to my new consultant and the secretary I spoke to could only tell me what was in my letter and that I would be seen in 6 months time.
I know I am probably working myself into a bit of a mess over nothing as my latest results show no cell changes but I can’t help worrying as my previous consultant has repeatedly seen an area of quite pronounced cell changes. Even though this has not shown up on my repeat smear. He was still very insistent that this area is removed sooner rather than later.
I suppose I’m hoping someone has some advice for me, six months is a long time to wait to find out whats going on. Or if someone else has gone through a similar experience.
