Hi everyone, new to the board and so glad I found it. I have been searching for information regarding abnormal pap results following a LEEP procedure, but couldn't find much of anything, so I thought I would post my situation here.
I had a LEEP procedure 6 months ago for CIN-III. The procedure went well and my surgeon indicated my margins were clear. I just had my 6 month follow-up pap, and I got the call that it was abnormal today. I am scheduled for another colposcopy in a few weeks.
What does this mean exactly? Is it likely that I will need another LEEP surgery? I don't think I could handle the emotional trauma of all that again. I feel like I am going through all of this medical and psychological turmoil again that I worked so hard to try to put behind me. Does anyone know what this might mean? How can my results be abnormal again? Am I really in the small percent of people for whom the LEEP is ineffective?
Any help or just hearing people's experiences would be incredibly useful. Thanks for listening!
