I have just joined, I am having my test of cure tomorrow and my anxiety is building up!
September 2016 (age 24) - I had my first smear test.
October 2016 - results were CIN 2 and I was referred to hospital for treatment
October 2016 - the doctor explained he would more than likely do treatment 'today' but explained the procedure and risks etc. He examined me and said he didn't want to do the treatment, but he took a punch biopsy instead. I was told to expect spotting and slight discomfort. Annoyingly a few days after, I began bleedy heavily and was admitted to hospital with an infection for 3 days.
November 2016 - Biopsy results came back as CIN2, referred for LLETS treatment.
December 2016 - treatment was performed (large excision - not just a scrape). Again, I was told to expect spotting. Unfortunately I had a very traumatic complication and actually hemorrhaged - I was rushed into hospital because I was losing so much blood. Was told to prepare for surgery and blood transfusion. They did however then say, they want to avoid surgery and cervix being stitched as I was so young and haven't had any children yet. I needed a bood transfusion and was hooked up to fluids and tranexamic acid to stop the bleeding. I also had a vaginal pack for 48 hours and catheter. Was in hospital for a week. Very very traumatic - the NHS are just fantastic.
My understanding was the part of my cervix which was removed was sent off for more testing. But my GP told me they had actually taken another Biopsy from further up - awaiting biopsy result.
December 2016 - biopsy results CIN3 (even more severe). But also referrred back to my GP to book in for another smear in 6 months.
So in my eyes... I am having a smear tomorrow, but I know I already have CIN3?? I am just so anxious already because I think I know I'm going to need more treatment. Now 25, getting married in 3 months and wanting to start a family!!
Has anyone had a similar experience? What will the next treatment be??
Thanks, Sarah x
