I had CIN 2 and 3 removed by Lletz in July this year with no issues. After 4 weeks I received a very un-informative letter from the hospital to say that "it appeared that all had been removed" and that they would see me for a repeat smear in 6 months at my GP surgery.
Yesterday I visited my GP for another matter and asked if she had any further info on my results as the letter was so vague. Unfortunately she was able to tell me that one of the margins was not clear. I cannot remember now which one it was as I kind of went into shock. As I had a 6 month recall I presumed they were happy that they had got it all.
I know the cells removed where not that wide but 7mm deep - is that big? I think it is the deep margin that is not clear.
My GP said not to worry but that this does mean that it is more likely that when I am checked in January (6 month check up) that it will be back. She said I had to wait for 6 months to allow healing time as otherwise could get a false reading. I don't want to worry about this again for 3 months, so does anyone have any advice for me?
What is the likelihood of reoccurance of CIN 3 if the margins were not clear? Is this likely to have turned into cancer in this time?? Anything I can do to help my body fight this?
