2 lletz, cin3 with no clear margins, high risk hpv and no children.

Hi everyone.

Not sure where the right place to post this is so I’ve actually posted it two places as it is for several different things.

As you can see by reading at the bottom about my journey I’ve been through a lot of messing with my cervix, for what is almost a year in January. I have a lot of concerns and have a really hard time dealing with the effects and reality of all this and I constantly feel stressed and anxious.

I just got the results from my second surgery, stating no clear borders and confirming cin 3. I have high risk hpv so this worries me a lot. I talked to a doctor from the hospital which told me that, they might not be able to do another lletz but in some cases they were able to do a “special” one just reaching the area where it needs. She said that if I had finished my family by now they would have advised a hysterectomy. This freaks me out!!! My biggest dream is to have a family, and my boyfriend and I are more then ready to start but have not had the green light from the hospital just yet.
The doctor also said that when I get the green light it would be advisable to finish my family as fast as possible.

All of this makes me think that the hospital also thinks of the worst. I’m worried because I am so young and this has been such a stressful experience. I know some of you deal with a lot worse than this and you have my deepest respect. I don’t know if I am able to handle anything worse by now with the constant worrying.

Beside this I have been offered to get a scan to possible have an abdominal cerclage. Have any of you had any experience with this?

And have any been in the position where you where might not able to receive another lletz? I’m so worried that this suddenly will develop into cancer because I’ve had it for so long and it is still there and so “wide spread”.

I appreciate any advice and any experiences shared.

Hi there,

This post really won't be one to answer your questions, rather instead I hope to validate your fear. I'm 25 also and was recently told I have HPV 16. This has been a year process for me and I just underwent my second colposcopy a few days ago. HPV has challenged my mental health in more ways than one and I feel like I live in constant fear that something is going to progress negatively with my health. Worst yet, I work as a mental health therapist!

But here is what I hope to offer you... since my last biopsy, I've finally decided to take my own clinical training to heart. Positive psychology and optimism are imperative to our overall well being; we became more resilient when we view a sititation as something we can overcome versus something that will defeat us. It's also so important that we let go of what we cannot control, which is a lot right now. But we can control how we honor our body, which means taking care of it through living a healthy lifestyle. Also,  If we live in the present, the future won't be so scary.

Im sorry if this isn't the type of reassurance you were hoping for. You are my first ever post and the empathy I felt towards your situtation prompted me to extend some light of hope. You will get past this. I hope you can create the beautiful family you've always desired.
