"Come biopsy"

About: Northwick Park Hospital

My name is Miss Dyoliany Dos Santos. I had a smear test with my GP last December and the result came showing that I had abnormal cells in my cervix. They sent the result to Northwick Park hospital and after that they started my treatment. At first, I had a colposcopy where they collect a tiny bit of the cervix tissue to make a biopsy, and again, the result showed high grade CGIN glandular neoplasia. After all that, doctor told me that I would have to have an operation which is called (cone biopsy). The surgery was successful completed and went home same day. After 6 months I had other smear test just to make sure everything had come back to normal and once again CGIN high grade was still there. Doctor talked to me again and they said that was quite unusual and they would recommend me to go to other hospital ( Queen's Charlottes and Chelsea ) in Hammersmith. I left the hospital in tears as I wasn't sure what was going on. I waited for 2 weeks till someone from Queen's Charlottes contacted me. Finally they had, and went to see one of the doctors yesterday. Unfortunately they decided that I will have to do other cone biopsy as I haven't got any chance and all they want to do is keep me safe as if it isn't treated properly it can become a cervical cancer in future. So I'm very disappointed with team who made my first operation as what sounds for us is that they haven't removed all abnormal cells properly and it's a shame that I have to go through all this thing again. It's absolutely horrible!
