Hi mrs m, I had been having post coital bleeding for around 6 months before i decided to visit my gp I didn't rush to visit the gp because I've always had normal smears and my last one had only been 2 years ago and as I though cc was slow growing the chance of it being cancer had not even entered my head! How naive of me!! Anyway the gp did an examination and diagnosed an erosion but referred me to colposcopy just to be safe..by the time my referral came through I was then due my 3 year smear so they took that and it came back borderline abnormal..so I had 2 punch biopsies and they came back back cin 2!! There was then a mdt meeting and they decided that they would remove the cin 2 with a lletz and a week after the lletz I had the dreaded phone call asking me if I could come in the following day...I knew straight away that it was cc as my gynaecologist had said I will pop a letter in the post...so he obviously couldn't see anything suspicious...that was Feb 23rd a day I will never forget..his words were "surprisingly it's cancer" so always clear smears no other symptoms other than some post capital bleeding but was told by gp and Gynae that was an erosion!! Fast forward to now and yesterday I was told its stage 1b2/2a....I'm sure you ve nothing at all to worry about but the waiting is one of the hardest things I've ever had to cope with! I wish you all the luck for your staging..keep in touch on here.
