You have come to the right place. This site is great for reassurance and information; I’ve found it so helpful over the last few months.
I’m not sure on how your hospital/clinic will work things but here’s my experience so far..
When my 1st smear results came with high grade dysk (severe abnormalities) I totally panicked, it’s hard not to!! I know it’s easier said than done but try and stay positive.
I had my LLETZ treatment at the same times as I went for my colp, this is normal. I think they just like to get it done there and then instead of messing around with second appointments. The LLETZ biopsy was sent for testing to see what the abnormal cells were (in terms of CIN1,2,3/GCIN/CIS or CC) I was not told what the abnormalities were before I got the biopsy results either.
I got the biopsy results sent to me in the post from my GP even though the whole process had previously been dealt with by the hospital clinic.
I hope this helps.
If you really are worried or you want some further information, the hospital should have a clinic number that you can call to ask further questions..
Try to stay positive and use this site as much as you want to ask questions or just to vent xxx

Thanks so much for you reply Katie1989 , it's good to know it's 'normal to have the LLETZ at the same time. I'm trying not to read up too much on Google as I think you can just end up scaring yourself even more!
Do you mind me asking what treatment they have suggested now you have your results or were all the cells removed in your initial LLETZ? xx
You're welcome louisella,
It's a tough time and we all need a little support :)
They removed all of the abnormal cells when the LLETZ was done so no further treatment is required for now, just a follow up smear in 6 months to make sure nothing has come back.
Stay positive hun and you're welcome to message me at any time if you want to vent xx
