hello everyone, I am new here and you all seem so friendly and helpful so I hope I can ask a question.
I have had abnormal bleeding for years with various tests done and clear smears so it was put down to hormones. I didn't have any abnormal bleeding whilst breastfeeding my son which my GP feels indicates that hormones may have been the issue.
Anyway, last month I had a high grade dyskariosis smear. I had my colposcopy this week and the nurse found two small areas of abnormality and thought it was more like moderate dyskariosis. She didn't mention a CIN rating. Because we are due to go in holiday soon, she wanted to delay the LLETZ. I was in two minds as I really want this to be dealt with now and was willing to forego the holiday but she was adament I should go and treatment can wait as she thought the abnormality was pre-cancerous.
My question relates to my concern that the actual testing of the cells surely can't happen until the LLETZ has been done? Could she have been sure from looking that it wasn't cancer?
I feel terribly guilty because my parents and husband are so relieved but doubt is creeping into my mind that it could still be cancer and we will not know now until the LLETZ is done in mid-July. Just looking for some advice/reassurance/similar experiences.
Thank you so much
