Firstly I just wanted to say what a fabulous resource this forum / site is. Reading your stories over the last few weeks has been a god send!
i had an abnormal smear result in late March and a colposcopy/ biopsy around 10 days ago. Luckily I have private healthcare through work and the process has thankfully moved along pretty quickly. I went in for my results and lletz today. This was to be carried out under local anaesthetic. The biopsy showed high grade CGIN and I was told by my consultant that I would require a 'top hat procedure' ( never has a top hat sounded less fun! ).
However upon getting stuck in there I was quickly told that he couldn't proceed any further
and I would have to have to carry out the procedure next week under GA. He said I had a large cervix (who knew!) and that the area of abnormality was larger than anticipated. He also told me that he had concerns re my womb and would under GA examine it with a telescope! On typing that now I am starting to wonder if I made it up!!!
I am really starting to panic now that something is much more wrong than I thought Has anyone experienced anything like this? Also how long was your recovery after lletz under GA?
I am 28 with one son.
