I posted before here as I have severe cells and I need a lletz.
However, I don't think I am understanding the conflicting information I have received (not from you guys but from the clinic).
The clinic are pushing pushing pushing for me to have the Lletz aS soon as possible. However as I'm in my mid 40s we are trying for a baby everyone is saying do the lletz, do it now. Yet Information I have seen on the Internet and in the literature the clinic gave me is saying that this is NOT cancer and it's only a risk of developing cancer a number of years down the line. So why the big hurry .... If it is only a risk factor for something that may not happen why is there not time to have a baby first then do the treatment? Why do I have to wait and waste months of my time I have left before I hit menopause if it's only a risk factor? What would happen if I went ahead and tried for a baby before the 6 months is up, got pregnant and had to wait 9 months to get a repeat smear test instead of 6. The more I read about people saying of don't worry it's nothing, the more I wonder if I should just not do this lletz thing till I get my baby As sounds to me the lletz is not nice and can weaken the cervix for a while and puts potential baby at risk As well as the obvious delay to conception.
Please can someone explain to me what these tests really mean? Why the big hurry if it's only a future risk? Or is it possible that I do indeed have cancer or would it have shown up by now and everyone is worrying over nothing. Surely cancer would have shown up in my biopsies.
and the no1 question .... If this is caused by the HPV virus why are they not testing for it and offering me a treatment, surely that's the best way is to treat the virus that is giving me this so called risk factor for cancer Because if it turns out I don't have cancer then why not treat the virus rather than leaving the virus in me and calling me back in 6 months to go through this same thing again.
Im sorry for the ramble but I'm so confused over something that everyone is saying "don't worry" about.
