CIN2 and pre-cancerous changes in 65 year old

Hi

I hope there's someone else around my age out there who can help me since I know that cervical smears cease at around the age of 60.

Because I've had abnormal smears for several years I had to have a colposcopy in June and December last year (2013) and almost 4 weeks ago underwent LLETZ (loop excision).  I had the results back today which show I have "pre-cancerous changes (CIN2) with nothing more serious" - this is quoted from the Consultant Gynaecologist's letter.  As a result I have to have a smear in 6 months' time at my GP's surgery.

You might say that this is all pretty normal but the fact is that this smear will probably be my last, given my age.  We all know that 'pre-cancerous' can, in time, become cancerous and what concerns me is that 

Hello.  I'm sure that with your history they will continue to do smear tests regularly for a period of time.  If you are concerned and are not offered this, I would demand it - you do have a right no matter your age.
