by Rachel on May 8, 2011

I was diagnosed with HPV last November and a few weeks after that I had laser surgery because I had Cin1 and cin 2 pre cancer cells. Anyway i did everything the doctor told me to do I didnt have sex for 8 weeks i got my first pap smear done i had to wait 4 months I just got it done last thursday and i am nervous of the results. i hope i dont have pre cancer anymore me my family and my boyfriend are all very worried.

i heard there is a 98% success rate of the laser curgery i had on my cervix anyone have any experience with this?

i am very thankful they found it early.

I can not remember what ‘version’ I had, but four years ago I had to have two cryo surgeries. It came back a few months after the first. The second took care of it and was told I would never deal with it again most likely. To this day my paps are clean.

Firstly, don’t worry about it.
Stress doesn’t help.

98% success rate?
Just talking amongst my friends, I can tell you that number is made up.

I have been through 9 surgeries for this, when they asked me to undergo surgery number 10, I decided it was time for me to take matters into my own hands, because the methods being offered (laser, diathermy, cone biopsies etc) weren’t having the desired effect.

I am now unable to have children due to the amount of damage caused by the multiple surgeries which were meant to “fix” me.

CIN2 is not as nasty as they would like you to believe.
Do some research, take control of your own body.

Just because the cells exist, doesn’t mean they’re active, and it doesn’t mean that it will progress into full blown cancer.

When I decided that I’d had enough surgery, I went for a smear every 6 months to keep an eye on things.
Eventually (after nearly 5 years) everything returned to normal, my body was able to rectify the problem on its own.

I just wish that someone had enlightened me with this information before I decided that “the doctor knows best”.
