Hope i've posted this in the right place.
I've suffered with abnormal smears for over 15 years, having had previous operations to remove cells as well as the 'normal' LLetz Loops.
For the past year ive been having smears and biopsy's every 3 months and each time the cells have come back CIN3 within the 3 months and i've tested positive for HPV:-(
I'm now on the shortlist for an urgent Hysterectomy. Im 38 with 1 child (8) and gutted that it means so no more children. My husband and I have been trying for another child for over 3 years with no luck.
In a way I cant wait to have the H as i'm hoping it will stop the years of anticipation of forever getting abnormal smears and contiuous treatment, but in the hand I'm so confused about the future, including how I will feel as a woman.
I also want to add that the last 3 years have been very difficult as my beautiful sister has had Cervical Cancer and has been through hell with the treatment. I know this should make me jump at the chance of a H and it kind of does, but still im concerned.
Is anyone else going through this or has any advise?
Im hoping to have keyhole but there is a possibility it may turn into open surgery due to my cervix and C section scarring.
Sorry to ramble and I hope that made sense.
