Abnormal smear after colposcopy

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to me?

I had a colposcopy back in December to remove CIN3 cells. I had my follow up colposcopy a couple of weeks ago and my consultant said that everything looked normal but I have just received a letter this morning saying that the smear they took at the same time is still showing HPV and moderate abnormalities which is a bit of a shock as if assumed all was ok after the colposcopy results.

I have to wait for them to discuss at a MDT meeting and then will hopefully hear back as to what their plans are but it’s just quite scary not knowing and was wondering if anyone had experienced something similar?
