I’m a bit confused at the moment. I had my first smear in July, waited 9-10 weeks for results to be told I have moderate cell changes and need a colposcopy.
Went for the Colposcopy a month ago and had a polyp which the doctor removed there and then and she also took two biopsies. I could see the white cells there and then and asked if she was going to do a LLETZ procedure, having read about it online. She said no, they no longer do the LLETZ procedures without waiting for biopsy results as it can affect chances of having a baby (?!). So I asked whether there was a chance that I might not need them removing and she said no, I will need them removed. So she bascially said I will need the cells removing but they want to wait for the biopsy results.
Have called today to see if they have my results - my GP looked and said it seems to be the same as my smear, i.e. moderate cell changes but that he’s not a specialist. I then called the hospital who said they were referring my case to an MDT which is in a month’s time!!!
I’m just totally panicking now, if it’s just moderate changes then why wouldn’t I have just been offered the LLETZ treatement in my initial appointment? I’m also freaking out about having children if I need to have more serious treatment as I’ve just turned 27, don’t have kids but definitely want them in a few years.
Has anybody had a similar experience where they didn’t have a LLETZ treatment at the colposcopy, despite being told that cells would highly likely need to be removed? Or has anyone been referred to an MDT??
Thanks in advance ladies xxx
