I had a letter through in April to advise my smear test had come back showing high grade dyskaryosis, this scared me as I have always had normal smears. I was booked for a colposcopy on 12th may which I attended yesterday. My friend came with me and I have to say I found the experience traumatic, probably as I was tense and nervous and also i was told I would definitely be having the lletz treatment .
The Dr was unsure at one point whether she was going to do the lletz there and then due to my cervix having numerous areas and the dye not showing up many brown areas however the treatment happened and biopsies taken of areas that looked suspect. I was told that the cells were pre cancerous, no cin grading was mentioned just that I would hear the results in 6 weeks and would then find out whether I will need smears every 6mths and be tested for the hpv virus.
I feel that I should have asked more questions as 6 weeks seems a long wait, also I was concerned when the dye not showing was discussed. I had never thought about my smear being abnormal and felt I had no symtons however have had to wee often for over a year, had mild pain in my right calf for months and also had a dull ache in my lower back and side which comes and goes. All of this I felt was due to something else like drinking too much fluid, bad posture etc but having read up on signs of cc I'm not so sure.
So I guess it's going to be a long 6 weeks wait :-(
