i am new to this forum and am very confused, I started my journey with an abnormal smear in Nov 2010, result was severe abnormalities. I had a loop biopsy which confirmed CIN 3 and low grade CGIN in November followed by another large loop in Feb 2011 for the CGIN. My follow up smear was inadequate and since then have had 6 smears with 4 being inadequate and 2 being normal. Routine smear and colposcopy last month showed abnormalities again. the consultant who carried out the colposcopy said that a third loop would be compromising so a hysterectomy would be the best option. I am 34 and have 2 beautiful boys and my family is complete.
when I returned to see the consultant last week with what I thought would be to talk through a hysterectomy he said we could try another loop!! This was not the consultant I saw at my last smear and he has never examined me. I have seen 3 different consultants and each say different things!
my colposcopy nurse told me the reason they get inadequate smears is because there is not a great deal of cervix and the opening to my womb is extremely narrowed. My question is am I just delaying the inevitable and will have a hysterectomy anyway. I am so fed up with 3 to six monthly smears and regular inadequates and then biopsies for more changes. Consultant also said that some consultants would recommend only hysterectomy for CGIn. They have given me a week to make my decision, they are happy to proceed with whichever I want but I just don't know what to do. I wish the medical professionals would decide and agree my treatment. Thanks
