Hi Lisa Dawn,
I've only just seen your post. I'm so sorry to hear what you're going through, I really feel for you. Have you had your coposcopy yet? Thank goodness you listened to your body, but you shouldn't have had to go private.
There are some similaries bwtween your situation and mine. My CIN 1 also changed quite soon into CIN 2 (so much for many years eh?). I've still got abnormalities, the difference being with me that within 6 months of LLETZ the abnormalities were back. So I haven't had a clear smear in over 3 years despite having treatment which removed all the abnormal areas.
The current trend for going by HPV results to determine how people are monitored frightens me. Look at your situation, it doesn't bear thinking of if you hadn't been seen for 3 years as they recommended. I'm HPV negative, so despite having abnromal cells return within 6 months of LLETZ (which in itself makes me high risk) they are leaving me 12 months before doing another smear, and yet I'm having problems like discharge. I may see if my GP will do one sooner.
I do understand some of what you're going through, and I'm here for you if it helps to chat. Take care and all the best x
