I'm a bit confused at the moment. I had my first smear in July, waited 9-10 weeks for results to be told I have moderate cell changes and need a colposcopy.
Went for the Colposcopy a month ago and had a polyp which the doctor removed there and then and she also took two biopsies. I could see the white cells there and then and asked if she was going to do a LLETZ procedure, having read about it online. She said no, they no longer do the LLETZ procedures without waiting for biopsy results as it can affect chances of having a baby (?!). So I asked whether there was a chance that I might not need them removing and she said no, I will need them removed. So she bascially said I will need the cells removing but they want to wait for the biopsy results.
Have called today to see if they have my results - my GP looked and said it seems to be the same as my smear, i.e. moderate cell changes but that he's not a specialist. I then called the hospital who said they were referring my case to an MDT which is in a month's time!!!
I'm just totally panicking now, if it's just moderate changes then why wouldn't I have just been offered the LLETZ treatement in my initial appointment? I'm also freaking out about having children if I need to have more serious treatment as I've just turned 27, don't have kids but definitely want them in a few years.
Has anybody had a similar experience where they didn't have a LLETZ treatment at the colposcopy, despite being told that cells would highly likely need to be removed? Or has anyone been referred to an MDT??
Thanks in advance ladies xxx
19/07/19 - Smear showed moderate dyskaryosis and high grade HPV
09/09/19 - first Colposcopy - showed mostly CIN1 with a small area of CIN2. Also had a benign polyp which was causing bleeding between periods
23/03/19 - second Colposcopy - referred to MDT and have now been offered the LLETZ. Practically the same results but possibly more 'convincing' CIN2.
TBC - LLETZ treatment.
