I just wanted a bit of advice or something. I had my colposcopy and LLETZ treatment on 27th March, so 2 weeks and 3 days ago. During that appointment the nurse told me that she suspected I had CGIN, and told me that if all was clear after the treatment I'd be asked for a smear in 6 months time. I understood I could wait up to 4 weeks for results which is fine. Yesterday I received a letter from the Nurse Colposcopist who did my treatment and it's left me really confused:
"Thank you for attending the colposcopy clinic on 27th March 2014. I trust you are making a good recovery from the treatment.
The biopsy taken when you had the loop excision is normal. It is important that you are aware that having once had an abnormal cervical screening test you must continue with regular follow up. There is a small chance that the pre-cancerous cell may return in the future, but providing you attend for cervical screening when you are advised to do so, any abnormal cells can be identified and dealt with promptly.
Your next cervical screening test is due in March 2017"
Few worries.....why did the letter come so early? When they say it was normal, does that mean there was nothing wrong with me to begin with? And WHY is my next screening not for three years?? That has seriously worried me, everything up to now has suggested I'd have another smear in 6 months after LLETZ as standard.
I plan on calling the hospital tomorrow to figure out what's going on. Has anyone else had this sort of thing? Feeling very confused.
