I'm new on here, and feeling very anxious regarding recent results. I feel like there has literally been no explanation, no emotional support, and no choice regarding something which I see as quite an emotional subject...
here's my story
-sept 2019- first cervical screening ' HPV positive'
-dec 2020 - second cervical screening 'HPV positive with low grade dyskarsosis'
-Feb 2021 - colposcopy, nurses didn't seem overly concerned but took biopsy
- Feb 2021 - CIN2: appointment given and will do treatment if needed
I'm feeling really overwhelmed. I've gone from HPV to CIN2 in less than 18 months. These are my big concerns
- why doesn't my appointment letter offer me the name
of treatment to be expected? How can I prepare to make a decision on this if I can't even research what is likely?
- if it's just an appointment and they just choose to manage this then I'd rather they tell me... I'm based 2 hours away from my home at the moment (due to work and covid relocation) so it's quite a trip
- the side effects of LLETZ are really worrying! I'm only 26 and I'm looking at this treatment thinking it's horrible!
I don't know if any of this is justified... I just feel a bit overwhelmed as mentioned and rushed in this .... as well as having to explain to people that HPV isn't anything I've done 'wrong', the toughest year in history, and now this it's fair to say I'm concerned
any advice? Any words of wisdom? Would be much appreciated
thanks so much and stay safe
