I had a routine smear test a few weeks ago and received a letter saying the it showed Dyskaryotic Endocervical Cells and was sent to the Colposcopy Clinic at the Hospital. I went there today under the impression that further investigation would take place, however, I went in and as soon as I got in the Dr told me that the dodgy cells were up inside my cervix and that they would take a 1cm piece of tissue away and that would get rid of all the bad cells, I questioned if he knew where the bad cells were and he said yes. I had no idea what to expect and from the leaflet I was given and what it said on the letter I thought I was having a Colposcopy. I laid on the bed and he inserted the speculum and told me he was going to do the local anesthetic and that would be the worst part - I felt nothing! Within a minute he started cutting, I could feel it all, cutting followed by a hot feeling. I was crying as the pain was horrendous, he said it was nearly finished, I was shaking and crying. I saw his notes on the way out and it said Lletz on it. My question is does this sound like a normal turn of events as I am totally confused as to why they would go straight for Lletz without further investigation? How would he even know where it was from a smear test? Do Smears even show up Endocervical Cells? I fear there may have been a mix up somewhere along the way. Sorry this is so long I just need to make sense of it all.
Thank you if you got this far. Appreciate any replies. x
