Well today has really knocked the wind out of my sails! Got the results today following my 6 month check after lletz for CIN3, the nurse I saw at the hospital said everything looked really good when she did my smear, aside from an ectropian that had caused me a few issues with bleeding she said I was well healed and looking good.
However my results have come back again as severe abnormalities, she said that even she was supprised by the results and it is most likley that the cells are from higher up the cervical canal rather than the surface, I had clear margins from the lletz so minimal chance it was anything left over from before. She has booked me back on the list for futher lletz but said it is more probable that I will have to have a cone under ga instead. My case will be reviewed with the consultant on thursday and she will ring me and let me know.
I hadnt stressed about results this time round and was feeling really positive so this has all come as a bit of a shock to be honest, my cin3 was extensive and when I got those results the nurse said 'I am not going to lie to you, it was really bad and you have had a close call' so now i am panicing that more has been lurking further up the cervical canal the whole time, if it has its had another 6 months to fester away!!!!
I am in the last few months of a degree course which is a really busy and stressful time anyway and would be interested to hear others experiences of having a cone done, the nurse said it would be a half day in hospital and obviously the ga will leave me a bit groggy but I was wondering what the recovery is like compared to having a lletz.
Despite the stress I am still thankful that it has been picked up.
