I just want to see if anyone else is having similar problems. I first needed a LLETZ when I was 21 - I'm now 31. Clearly for some reason my body is not clearing the HPV and therefore the abnormalities just keep coming back. I have had countless biopsies, 2 LLETZ and have never managed to go for more than a year without abnomalities cropping up. I had a LLETZ a year ago and once again it is back, I am booked in for a LLETZ, vagnial biopsies and a laparoscopy next month. I have asked for a Hysterectomy firstly because I am fed up of having this recurrent problem but also because my cervix doesn't heal too well. Following a smear 6 weeks ago I was in pain, bloated, and bleeding for 2 weeks. Since my last op I have only had the odd day when I am not in pain, sometimes the aching other times the stabbing pain. I feel like this condition has robbed me of part of my life, it damages my relationships too and I just want it over! My consultant told me that even if I had a hysterectomy the abnormalities could return anyway so now I feel like my 'final solution' has been taken away as well. Because my cervix no longer protrudes smears and biopsies are very difficult and my consultant believes they should be done under GA in the future.....
Has anyone had a similar experience?
Is anyone aware of any immunology referrals re: the immune system not kicking the virus?
Has anyone experienced abnormalities post hysterectomy?
