I had a cone biopsy in June for CIN3 - which was originally thought to be cancer hence why they did the cone but thankfully on results of surgery was CIN3. When I went for my 6 week follow-up post surgery the doctor said I just go for regularly pap smears again from now on but I thought surely it would be every 6 months or at least less than the usual standard? I live in Australia and pap smears are every 5 years now. I am just wondering if anyone knows what the likelihood of a re occurrence is after having a cone- is it less than when you have a LEEP? As my friend who had a LEEP had to have 6 monthly pap smears for 2 years post surgery so I thought that would be the same for me?
Any advice would be welcome.
