Hoping for a bit of shared knowledge from you guys, it's amazing to see how many women have gone through this rollercoaster.
I have been diagnosed with high grade CGIN adenocarcinoma and had a LLETZ on Tuesday which was surprisingly painless although the journey home was a shock as I wasn't at all prepared to be getting the procedure!
I would not be as concerned but the reason I went in for my smear (first since 2009) was because of heavy post-coital bleeding which happened twice in May/June but has not happened since. Smear came back with atypical glandular cells so I was referred to hospital where I had 2 ultrasounds that revealed nothing, colposcopy that revealed nothing and hysteroscopy that revealed a healthy womb. However the repeat smear revealed the high-grade cgin.
So, my question is, is it possible that the CGIN could be advanced stage CC considering the post-coital bleeding? Is it possible that the LLETZ has gotten rid of it? The consultant told me that she does not think it's cancer, can she say that if there is any doubt? She did tell me that whatever happens I'll be seeing her annually for the next 10 years and that when I've had my kids I'll be encouraged to have a hysterectomy. I'm 32 by the way.
If anyone has ANY words of wisdom, good, bad or indifferent please share them! I'd like to be prepared for the worst case scenario on the 3rd Nov!
