So I got my results of my smear audit today. Turns out my 2011 smear was actually mild changes and not clear as resported back then. I am not going to obsess over the 'what ifs' as there is no point. However it does make me realise....
1) smears are so important. While mine missed minor changes in 2011 the one that did pick up the changes saved my life and my fertility. I just wish we could have them more regularly in the UK.
2) If you know something is wrong with your body you need to PUSH to get it investigated even if you have a clear smear behind you - and doctors need to take us seriously when we have symptoms. Mine went from Mild changes in 2011 to cancer 1b1 in December 2014, wihtout treatment. That is pretty fast even for a slow growing tumor!!
Just wanted to share with anyone interested!
