this is just a quick question regarding the recall time for my next smear....
in dec 2010 my smear came back CIN3, a colposcopy showed evidence of micro invasive cancer and so in January 2011 I had a cone biopsy. The cone biopsy results came back with clear margins so I was put onto 6 monthly smears, all have come back clear until last year which showed borderline changes but with the HPV test negative. I was then put on to yearly smears, my recent one a few weeks ago has just come back as CIN1 but also with HPV positive (says in the letter high risk). I would expect after that result, especially with my history, to be called in for a colposcopy or at least a smear in 6 months but instead I've been called in again in a year! I'm not sure I can wait a year... I'm going to call the hospital tomorrow to question this but I would really like to hear all your thoughts first? I'm so confused?
If the hospital refuse another smear before a year, do you think I should get a private one in 6 months?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts
