[QUOTE=rosequartz;5105480]its called cryosurgery, but it's not really surgery. I had it done in the doctors office, they just insert something in you that freezes off the top layer of cells and they sluff off over the next couple weeks. It's not invasive, there is no blood, no cutting, it doesn't hurt.....please.....its the easiest way to treat this.[/QUOTE]

Hi Like I said , I am due back on the 10th , and will evaluate the situation then, at the moment the procedure they are offering me is the Lletz , Loop electrical excision procedure, This I understand is a lower cost procedure and seems to be the only one offered (under medical card) , this is more invasive than the cryosurgery and it causes bleeding and healing time of about 4 to 6 weeks, as this procedure does cause bleeding and can include infection and hemorrhage. Damage to the cervical stroma may lead to cervical stenosis or incompetence. The LEEP does not appear to affect fertility. Scarring of the cervix can, however, lead to trouble conceiving, these are all things that the hospital has never mentioned to me , I have had this treatments twice in the last 6 years and have never felt completely back to normal after each one, I am very reluctant to go through it again , especially as this time i have now CIN3 .
I will ask about the cryosurgery on my next visit ,If my alternative treatment has made no improvement , But if it has ... happy days, I will continue down that road, the road of non profit for the big pharmaceutical companies tha monopalise the medical market and how people can be ethically treated . Thanks again for your advise, L.G

Just as a matter of interest what level of CIN did you have for this procedure , Cryotherapy is used to treat abnormal cervical cells (CIN) by destroying the affected area so that normal cells can grow back in their place. It has a slightly lower success rate than the other treatments for abnormal cervical cells and so it is less commonly used, particularly for CIN3.
