Well I finally recieved my results letter following the lletz and I am shocked at how short it is and the fact that there are no descriptions.
This is the content of the letter:
The cervical tissue removed recently in the colposcopy clinic at your loop diathermy treatment showed pre-cancer abnormality and changes due to the papillomavirus (CIN3 and HPV).
Please see your GP in 6 month's time for a cervical smear.
Is this normal practise? There is explanation of what CIN3 or HPV is (although I do know), I was given no information when I went for the procedure other than he read the smear letter to me and said I would bleed and no intercourse for 4 weeks.
It just seems that I have had this bombshell dropped on me and no one wants to talk it through with me. I am hoping to get an appointment with the GP tomorrow as they have a copy of the histology report.
I am considering making a complaint ot the hospital about the lack of information given before, during and after the appointment as I am sure that I am not the only one that feels this is inadequate.
