So I had a severe smear, then a biopsy which showed cin 3 so I was given a lletz. Finally, 5 weeks later my results letter has come (all two sentences of it) which states that during my treatment an area of cells known as cin 1 were removed and I need to attend my gp for a smear in 6 months time.
How can this happen? Firstly I'm a bit annoyed I was put through all that worry, and unnecessary treatment for something that was only cin 1 anyway. However, how did a rather large biopsy come back as cin 3 inaccurately (I saw the histology, involving crypts and everything). I'm worried that the lletz didn't get the cin 3..maybe it just missed it? Or perhaps the cin 3 was all removed with the first biopsy... Which to be honest should have been explained in the letter. I'm a bit confused now, I might ring up but they're always so busy and it's just the one nurse who does the colposcopy clinic and she's never available.
I don't feel like I have any closure on this.
