Ive been a member on here for six months but this is my first post.
I am a single parent to a wonderful 8yr old, Im still reasonably young (30) and Im not quite ready to give up on the idea of future children.
Although I have maintained the perspective that my son is No 1 priority and if a decisions needs to be made it has to be based on him and not any future bubbas that I may or may not have.
But Im looking for some input from any of you lovely ladies.
Its a bit long winded Im afraid but here goes my journey to date.
Aug 13, Abnormal Smear - Severe results.
Aug 13, Colposcopy,
Sept 13, 1st Lletz treatment
Oct 13, Results Cin 2-3 No clear margins - assurred by consultant that any additional cin would have been burnt off by Lletz treatment
April 14, Abnormal Smear - Severe result.
May 14, Colposcopy,
June 14, 2nd Lletz treatment under GA 20mm taken, abnormalities seen in cervical canal
June 14, Cin 3 confirmed at deep margins, no clear margins, again assurred that additional cin burnt off by lletz treatment
July 14, freak out, arrange follow up appointment with consultant, suggest ecc, consultant doesnt seem reassurring this time
July 14, Booked appt for second opinion at a different hospital, again reassured that everything is probably fine, follow up smear booked with new consultant.
Nov 14, Colposcopy and smear, colposcopy looks fine, again reassurred everything is fine.
Today, Phone call from consultant, results severe smear.
Due to my age and fertility preservation suggests I could do a 3rd Lletz but is strongly indicating laporscopic Hysterectomy would be his prefered choice.
Im freaking out that this is cancer and they just havent picked it up because the abnormalities endocervical.
Has anyone been in a simillar situation??
Have any of you ladies had 3 Lletz treatments to the go on and carry a baby?
Or is it just delaying the inevitable Hysterectomy?
Sorry for lengthly post. So fed up with all this and very confused.
