Im new to this site, Im in the UK and earlier this year was shocked to have an abnormal smear. I was a year late having my smear. Im 30 years old, have no children and can count on one hand how many sexual partners ive had! So was shocked to be sent the letter.
Ive had a colposcopy and getting the results have been a nightmare due to my consultants 'busy schedule'! Nearly a month has passed and after being told on the day of the colposcopy that from the screen that I would need some treatment but it wasnt done there and then, probably due to my nervousness and because they said it was large area.
So after chasing my results with no luck I had my GP call to speak to the consultant, She told me that I have CIN 3 but its spreading to my glands...i didnt ask enough questions - can anyone tell me anymore about this?
I was told originally that I wouldnt be treated any later than the 1st september as in the Uk they aim to have no longer than 12-13 weeks from referral date. Now im being told that it defo wont be in August because my consultant on hols.
So , my gp recommended two options, the first that I pay to go pvt!!! I just cant afford this, secondly complain to PALS within my hospital, which I did, so I have an appt on wednesday to see the consultant.
Can anyone give me any more info on CIN 3 spreading to glands?
