My first post here! I have to say, this website is really useful when you’re having all these letters about abnormal smears and colposcopies!
Anyway, my story is much the same as all of yours but I’ll give you a brief rundown. Smear, severe high grade dyskaryosis shown, went for colposcopy and had three punch biopsies taken. I received the results today over the phone. The nurse said that it showed I have CIN I,II, and III. How can that be? I thought it was a gradation system of severity? Or is it patchy, with some severe and some minor?
She also said that they’ll do LLETZ and then take that sample for testing to ensure the cells haven’t become invasive as they’re concerned about the CIN III. So… when its invasive, that means cancer?
I should have asked more questions but I just went a bit blank.
Thanks everyone. Trying to concentrate at work at the moment! It’s not happening!
