Can I please start by saying how wonderful this website and forum is. I have only just joined and this is my first post but it is lovely and comforting to read everyones stories. i have found it very reassuring.
I am only just starting on this journey and have done lots of research which i have found has helped.
I received my letter following my smear test on the 19th of October which confirmed borderline changes. I went for the colposcopy yesterday and the nurse took 2 biopsies (one lower and one upper) she said she thinks it is CIN 2 and that i will require treatment. She offered me Lletz under GA as she said there was quite alot that needs removing and I am very squeamish about these sorts of things. She also requested i go and see my GP to arrange blood tests as i have a swollen lymph node in my neck. I am now obviously awaiting the biopsy results and waiting for my treatment date.
She did mention that it was strange that the diagnosis has gone from borderline to CIN 2 in just a month (she said it may even be a higher diagnosis that that and i will need to wait for the results)
From what i have read on other threads most people dont get a diagnosis until they have the biopsy or Loop. Could anyone tell me if they had been given this much info at Colp? and if I can really go from borderline to CIN 2 that quick? i suppose the BIG question is if it has moved quickly are there chances of it being cc? Are there any chance she may of got it wrong and i am actually only CIN 1 as the smear results suggested?
Sorry too many questions i know!!
