A quick run down on my story. I had LLETZ for CIN III back in 2003. All smears since then were normal. Last October I trotted off for my 3 yearly smear and got the results back to say I had mild changes and to come back for a repeat smear in 6 months. Just got my last results on Saturday and the letter states "your recent cervical smear shows changes which will require further investigation. You will receive an appointment to a local clinic within the next 8 weeks.
I remember the last time it took 8 weeks to get the appoitnment letter and a futher 5 weeks before the actual appointment. 13 weeks is way too long to have a wait so I've decided to skip a holiday this year and use the money to go private.
My questions are:
1. Why has this returned after all this time? I'm not sure if the recent changes have stayed the same or got worse, I'll speak to the doc about that next week.
2. Does anyone have any experience for going fior a private colposcopy - pros or cons?
Any advice anyone can give would be much appreciated. I'm so upset I have to go through all of this again.
