Recurring abnormalities

21 Nov 2020 22:52

Hi everyone! In January this year I had an abnormal smear result which resulted in Lletz treatment for Cin 2 (or 3 I'm not sure it's all a blur) I then recieved a letter 4 weeks later asking me to back for further treatment I had another Lletz. Then recieved a letter to say that was it and I was to have a smear in 6 months...I've just recieved my results for said smear and its came back as abnormal again, I've to wait for an app for hospital but obviously with covid everything is on a go slow. I'm a little worried, can I have a further lletz treatment? I also had one around 15 years ago, can you have multiple? Like 3 in a year or will I be offered different treatment? Am I right to worry? Sorry I'm all over the place...any advice would be great thanks xxxx

Hello Jbarr

I'm sorry to hear that you've had some recurring abnormal smear results which despite Lletz treatment hasn't been resolved. 
I'm afraid that I'm not able to answer your questions but you may find it helpful to give our team of nurses a call who can give you some more information. They're available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 0808 800 4040. Alternatively, you may find answers to your questions on the Jo's Trust website. 

I hope that you don't have to wait too long for your appointment and that things can be resolved quickly.
