I have just read some of the new posts here about persistent HPV and all the repeat testing/colposcopies/Lletz that we have all been through, I am so upset that we have to go through this all, and I want to give you some positive news.
I have just received my results in the post following my 6 month test of cure after my 2nd Lletz. I was so nervous when I saw the envelope, I just knew it was my results, and I didn’t want to open it at first.
But…I have now tested HPV Negative!
I had Adenocarcinoma In Situ (CGIN) and HPV16 so I really thought I would be one who had persistent HPV.
Based on the fact that I went from low grade to AIS within 1 year, that I get fever blisters (HSV) and had glandular fever (EBV), I just assumed that I am prone to persistent type viruses and that this HPV would stick around.
So to say I am really grateful for these results is an understatement!
I hope and pray for all of us on here, that we will all beat this virus permanently!
Also, I have just realised that I am one week late…eeek
