I'm new on this forum - I've been reading a few posts for a couple of weeks but decided to sign up. I wonder if anyone can shed any light on my situation for me as I'm quite confused!
Following 2 abnormal smears (Dec 11 and another July 12) I got called for a colposcopy appointment in July 12. I went along, they had a quick look and decided yes I needed treatment, to which I postponed for 6 weeks as I was due to get married and go on honeymoon (they were fine with this and encouraged me to do so!)
I had my appointment in Sept 12 whereby I had the diathermy (LLETZ) treatment with a local injection. All was fine, didn't feel a thing, was lucky had no bleeding afterwards. Had the odd twinge of pain but nothing major.
After waiting 8 weeks for my results (I had to call to chase them!) I had a letter to say ".... they'd removed areas amounting CIN3, with no evidence of cancer. ..... there was some evidence of changes at the edge of the sample which they hope would've been destroyed by the diathermy that they use to stop bleeding after treatment...."
I've now got a 6 month call back to the clinic but I'm abit nervous - will they be doing the same treatment again? Or just a smear or....?
Every time I try and call the clinic, there's no doctors available or when I asked my GP, she was pretty useless too! I'm 30 so nervous over how this will effect my ability with having children as this is something we're considering but of course not sure how long I'll be needing treatment etc.
Can anyone help or explain anything? I'm not really clued up even on the CIN gradings either?
