I saw this website advised in the waiting room at my hospital in Jan 13 as I was waiting for a LLTEZ Procedure.
After 5 years of having abnormal smears, all resulting in visiting the colposcopy clinc, the last visit I was advised that I need a LLTEZ which came back as CIN2. Having been lead to believe that this would solve the problem, I was expecting my check up smear to come back clear. I recieved a letter this morning advising me it had showed abnormal cells and HPV infection......all came as a shock and I had a good cry as I thought I was getting better.
Having again read up on it all on the Internet, it has done nothing but worry me, making me feel ashamed and dirty for the infection.....the leaflet sent with the letter did not help either. But reading the posts on here has made me feel not so alone. My partner is away working in Afghan so this is the last thing I want to tell him about, he has been like a cat on hot coals waiting to here back.
i am not looking for just reassurance but to make friends with people going through the same as me.
