At the end of January I was called about my smear results showing high grade severe cells and high risk HPV.
I was sent for a colposcopy within 10 days (bloody smear had taken 7 weeks to come back)
My colposcopy she said yes she can see a few tiny patches of cells but everything looked nice and healthy.
12 days later I got a call asking me to go into the hospital immediately to discuss results and further treatment (prompt nervous breakdown).
First thing she says is please don't worry, you're not going to die. 😯
So it turns out there was microscopic areas of very early cancer within the high grade cells that they removed. Consultant happy with the margins so don't need another lletz at this time.
My feelings are so all over the place because I've just been told "oh you had cancer and we removed it so don't really need to acknowledge it", despite the fact that I am now under the oncologist and gynaecologist for 3 years at least, every smear is now a colposcopy and the fact that my next bad smear will prompt a discussion about a hysterectomy....but I'm meant to just be relieved and happy (which of course I am) but I'm so emotionally drained about it all 💔
Any advice? X
