This is my first post I'm feeling really upset right now and just want some support and hear from anyone who might be in the same situation
My smear result from August was abnormal cell changes and HPV. I had my lletz on 17 Sept. The hospital called me last week to say that my cell changes were higher up in the cervix and that I have CGIN. They said I'd need a smear every year for 10 years and that any cell changes however small would have to be removed. I got my head around that.
Then this morning they called and said that the lab (I think) had called them and they haven't removed all the cells. Also as I have CGIN they need a minimum of 10mm and they only got 7mm. I have to go back for another Lletz in a few weeks time under a general anaesthetic. I just feel terrified. Is that an overreaction? I've been crying all morning. I personally found the Lletz horrible. They injected me 5 times with anaesthetic and I could still feel, I had to get them to stop as it hurt so much. I hate saying that and I don't want to scare anyone, I know that's not the case for most women. I know I'll be under GA next time but that scares me as well.
Since the Lletz I developed an infection, then got thrush from the antibiotics. I just feel a bit sorry for myself at the moment. I'm still getting cramps and feel uncomfortable a lot and I can't believe I have to go through it again. Sorry to be so negative. On top of this I'm moving house soon and suffer from severe depression. Finding it hard to cope x
