I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to me and/or has any advice
So I had my smear 4 months ago, it took 9 weeks for my results to came back and they came back as low grade dyskaryosis so I was sent for a colposcopy and was biopsied 4 weeks ago.
Was told it would be a 3-4 week wait for results and had still heard nothing so called them. Apparently someone had forgotten to sign off the letter so good job I called!!
The nurse I spoke to said that my biopsy has come back with CIN2 but it’s what they call a focal area so is really small so they’re having to take it to MDT on 4th august to decide whether to recommend a LLETZ or not.
She said they’re going to look at my smear again to see if they still think that’s low grade or if it actually looks more high grade. If it looks more high grade they’re likely to recommend LLETZ
If it’s low grade she said, and I quote, “you’re young, don’t smoke and haven’t had kids yet so we don’t want to take a part of your cervix out unless it’s 100% necessary so we would wait 6 months and refer you back for a colposcopy in 6 months”
I’m a little bit annoyed about this as how do they know whether I want kids or not? As a matter of fact I’m not actually sure I do, I haven’t made up my mind.
I also found the colposcopy extremely distressing and the thought of having to have it every 6 months and then wait for the results for 3-4 weeks terrifies me.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Do they take your view/opinion into consideration?
Obviously I’d rather not have a LLETZ but I’m also not sure I want to leave the cells alone to do their thing either
