I have had normal smears for years (always gone every three years), however my latest one came back as severe dyskaryosis. I was invited for a colposcopy appointment 2 weeks later and had a lletz procedure while I was there. It all went fine, the staff were brilliant and the procedure was pretty much pain free. I am now just over 3 weeks since the procedure and am recovering well- I have experienced the same side effects that others have posted on here and just needed one day off work after the procedure.
I got a letter 4 days ago telling me that the tissue removed during my lletz has tested all clear with just minor changes due to HPV- no pre cancerous changes. I am obviously very pleased but it has left me quite confused- how can my smear show severe dyskaryosis but my pathology report come back so different? In the letter, the consultant has advised that he will be discussing my case in the multi disciplinary team meeting in the next month due to the variation in the results, and he will review my previous reports with the pathologist. He also says he will let me know about follow up actions.
I keep feeling really happy with the result, then angry at the thought that they might have put me through an unnecessary procedure, and then feeling scared that maybe they have made a mistake.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Am I getting stressed for no reason at all?
