Waiting for results

Hi, new here and just looking for some guidance or people who have been in the same situation. Recently had my first smear and results came back as I have HPV and severe dyskaryosis. Got sent for a colposcopy and had loop excision to remove something from my cervix ? They said I now have to wait for results this was 2 weeks ago. What results are they? What are they looking for on the biopsy and what should I expect the letter to say ? Are they looking for cancer or just abnormal cells ? I'm so scared : (

hey. i had my loop/lletz just over a week ago (21st aug) and i was the same as you - no idea what they would be testing and why etc i spent a good few days just worrying myself sick. 

from what ive gathered from this forum, they will grade the cells theyve taken and see if they got a clear margin of 'normal' cells around that. and they will take it from there. 

my understanding is that if there is a clear enough margin then they will just do a smear in 6 months to make sure youre still all clear. if there isnt, then they might repeat the loop/lletz treatment, depending on grade.

im not going to tell you not to worry because im still worrying about what my results are going to say. the ladies on this forum are so kind and helpful and its been a huge help to me. but the likelihood is you (and me) will be fine, and they will have removed all the abnormal cells with the procedure. 

good luck xxx
