I had a colcoscopy/Lletz 5 weeks ago after severe abnormalities showed on my smear results. I got a letter 2 weeks ago saying that I didn't have cancer but they couldn't guarantee that all abnormal cells had been removed and due to the severity of the abnormality, they would like to see me again for a repeat procedure. That was today and I had a second Lletz procedure.
The consultant discussed the pathology results with me and the first thing she said was 'I am telling you it is absolutely not cancer, but it was damn close'. She said I had CIN3, but also there was another result, which was 11/12 and I can't remember what it was, but she basically said that had I waited another 6 or 12 months for my smear then it may be a different story altogether. She mentioned something about cervical spots/lesions and if they are open even a tiny bit then that means it is cancerous. I am not sure what this second result was, does anyone know please?
The consultant also tried to reassure me that if when I had my smear in 6 months it came back saying I have HPV, not to worry as this was sort of a good thing as it meant I'd have regular smears as opposed to going back to three yearly. Could she suspect I have HPV, is there any way of knowing or suspecting without testing for it?
Thankyou. I am sorry if I sound like a worrier!
