This is my second abnormal smear (I am 42) and needed to have a colposcopy and biopsy last week. Just received my biospy results which show CIN1-2 and that I need LLETZ treatment.
On the one hand I am pleased the results came through so quickly; they had said 4-5 weeks and the waiting was driving me crazy. On the other I don't know how to feel about them. The rational part of me is saying 'its not cancer, its not cancer' but there's a part of me that is really scared.
Is it normal to feel like this? I've read some of the forums and everyone seems so brave with what they are facing and going through and I feel a bit of an idiot to be making a drama of something that is so treatable?
I literally have just picked up the results (benefits of access to medical records but kind of wishing I had waited for the post!) so am sure I'll calm down and be able to think about it calmly soon.
Any advice/replies gratefully received
