The more I am reading your glorious happy/sad/worried posts, it is starting to make me feel a little more worried in myself and although I try to think I am a strong person - I've learnt over these last few weeks no matter how strong a person you are it will always affect you.
I have just had LLETZ coming up to a week ago for CIN3 (by the way, the treatment was actually fine - I psyched myself up for something for nothing! I didn't even feel the injections so please try not to worry! :-) ) I just feel as though the process has been uninformative in my case, and the only real information I have found is from these brilliant forums.
When I had my first Colposcopy appointment with biopsies, the consultant was a little more informative than the most recent consultant. They ask about your previous history etc, and at the time I mentioned to her that as a teenager for a good few years I always had bleeding between periods/after sex. Back then I didn't think anything of it and stupidly didn't go to the doctor to sort it. It eventually stopped. However, 1-2 years ago I had the most unbearable, sharp pevlic pain cramps for no apparent reason, to the point I was curling over in pain not being able to move for a few minutes until it subsided. The second time it happened I was so close to asking my other half to take me to A&E, but I just thought they would send me home and say its nothing.
Anyhow, I mentioned all of these things to the consultant on my first appointment and she just shrugged her shoulders and said 'that was a long time ago its not really relevant'. At this point I thought maybe she was right, she is the health care professional after all and it probably has nothing to do with my results from the smear test.
The more I am reading posts of people that may have had similar bleeding/experiences etc and it has been linked to what their results were, its really starting to worry me whether there has been something for potentially 5-10 years that I've never picked up on. Especially as this is my first smear (what if I have had something since I was 16 or 20 years old and its had time to grow?). I didn't mention anything to the second consultant at my LLETZ as I still had in my head it cant be linked as it was too long ago. Everything just seems a bit of a blur, my letter from biospy didn't tell me my results, I had to phone the hospital to find out it was CIN3, and the consultant at my LLETZ didn't seem keen on me asking too many questions and was just going through it like it was her job.
Sorry for the rant its only really just hitting home. I know the waiting is the worst part and I still have 2-3 weeks more to wait for results. Just wondering if anyone else has had anything similar happen to them or any reasurrance :-(
