It's all happened really quickly i must admit. 21st May smear test after 4 years, 31st May letter to say i had high grade abnormal cells appointment for the 7th June to undergo Loop procedure. Results from Loop 1st July grade 1A1 cells and CIN3, second loop undergone 22nd July. I have googled alot because my consultant hasnt explained everything to me. I have felt very let down and upset that her Communication has been so poor.
My first appointment with her was when she told me they had found the cancer. No grading was given, nothing was said about CIN3. I was told it was a very small area found, it had been removed and she will do another loop on 3 weeks to make sure everything has gone.
I saw her again 3 weeks later, i under went second loop and she wasnt going to sit down with me to explain or go through anything to my absolute dis-may. I had to ask her questions which i then found out more, she told me there were pre-cancerous cells found which was the reason i had to have a second loop. She also 'mentioned' not explained she wont do any further loop/treatment she will just offer me a full hysterectomy dependent on the results from second loop and it was left like that. I didnt understand why she even mentioned hysterectomy.
I have since voiced my concerns with the hosiptal and asked to be seen by another consultant although i'm worried this wont actually be actioned and i will see her again.
I'd like to know why not offer any further treatment? Since reading on this website its a case of removing all CIN3 which can be done cant it?
i'm 31 years of age, i have 2 children - only one here with me, my other baby was born asleep at full term. I have just seperated with my partner of 9 years and plan to have no more children but a full hysterectomy is a major operation.
I think about this every day and it goes round and round in my head, i'm so scared of the next set of results...
