Follow up after LLETZ

Hi, I had my first smear test last year (I’m 27) and it came back with abnormal results. After my colposcopy it turns out I had significant CIN3 so I was referred for LLETZ under general anaesthetic. 

3 weeks later I got a call about the results and was told I now have a meeting with the consultant tomorrow to discuss my results but the letter and phone call was vague and the nurse on the phone would not give me any more information but I could tell from the consideration that I need more treatment and to discuss ‘options’ with the consultant. 


Im stressing out about what this is and expecting a worse case scenario. What could be a follow up treatment to a LLETZ?



Try not to panic, it may be something as simple as they did not get clear margins from your first lletz so maybe need a repeat lletz to remove all the abnormal cells. I know it extremely worrying but whatever happens you’ve got this.
