I can't remember dates exactly but I had a smear last year that came back that I had tested positive for HPV and high grade (moderate) abnormal cells. I went for a colposcopy and the doctor did a biopsy (she later sent a letter saying she had done multiple biopsies and found cin 1 and 2). I then got a text to say I had an appointment. I hadn't recieved my results yet so rang them to be told I have cin 1 and 2. Went to the appointment in December to have the lletz done, at which point I was told by the doctor that unless the HPV goes, the precancerous cells will most likely keep coming back, she also tried to persuade me to not bother with the lletz and see if they go on their own as there is a chance they will. However I had already made the decision to have them removed and so she did that. After 8weeks I rang to get my results as I had not yet recieved them. And was told I have Cin 2 and Cin 3 and that I still have HPV. The lady told me it doesn't progress quickly and that they probably missed it the first time as they only take a small sample for biopsy and they only do one biopsy but I have the letter the doctor sent to my local gp saying she'd done multiple biopsies so how could they have missed it? Is that more likely than it progressing in less than 6months? I was given a new appointment for a 6month follow up smear for June but that was cancelled and now the hospital are not making any appointments for a while due to only taking Covid patients and emergencies. I'm starting to worry, how quickly can it progress to actual cancer? Everything I've read says it's unlikely but my results have really confused me. I've not really thought of it since I got the results but after being told that it could be the end of the year that they contact me for an appointment I'm freaking out a bit. Overthinking. I can't ring the helpline as I'm worried my children will hear and get worried so I guess I just needed to vent somewhere. If you got this far, I'm sorry it's such a long and pointless post, and thank you.
