Smear after LETZ made me ill

I’ve been asked to come back for my 6 month smear test to check for abnormal cells after a LETZ procedure in May. I found the whole process so distressing that I ended up in a mental hospital. I feel like I cannot go back. Is there anything I can do as an alternative?

Hello I’m so sorry that’s happened to you, unfortunately I don’t think there is any other way to test for HPV and cervical cell changes. Could you take someone with you for support? X
