I was wondering if anyone can offer me advice. My problems started a year and a half ago.
First I had a bad smear.
Then a biopsy which showed high grade CGIN.
So I had my first local anthestetic Lletz, this was not clear.
I had to have another general anthesthetic Lletz, where he went further up my birth canal.
This came back totally clear. I was happy until my 6 month later smear which showed borderline changes.
This is the part I am confused about. My consultant told me that he thinks there is a high chance these cells could turn to cancer, and if I were older, had kids then he would give me a hysterectomy. As I am 36, just about to get married and not had kids yet, he suggested doing a 3rd Lletz and a sweep of my womb with the hope that it will come back clear. He said if it comes back ok, I should try for a baby straight away (as he would still proceed to hysterectomy after birth) - but if there are more bad cells he would want to do a hysterectomy straight away.
I dont understand how cells can be borderline in the smear but it could warrant a hysterectomy? It seems far too severe to me. He said it was because of my glandular history???
If it was to prevent cancer, of course I would do what he says, but from borderline to cancer??? and I know my chances of carrying a baby are compromised by having a 3 Lletz.
If anyone has a similar story or can offer any clarity at all, I would be very grateful.
