I have Lletz treatment on 10/09/12 which was followed that evening by silver nitrate treatment and then a cauterisation of my cervix as I was bleeding very heavily and nothing they did stopped it! I came home the following day still bleeding heavily which was normal. I was told the bleeding would calm down and eventually stop (2-4 weeks). 12 weeks and 3 days on I am still bleeding! I have been back to Colposcopy today to have another colposcopy and also more silver nitrate treatment. The surgeon tells me he cannot see where the bleeding is coming from however for 8 hours today the bleeding stopped but at 9pm I started bleeding heavily again. I have no infection, both my Dr and the surgeon have checked and have said there is no sign of infection. The colposcopist said today that I have to take these antibiotics for 2 weeks and if the bleeding still hasn't stopped then I'll be back into theatre for another cauterisation of my cervix. If my cervix isn't bleeding then why would they cauterise it again? Has anyone else had this problem? I would like to opt for a hysterecomy to be honest, I've had both my children and do not want anymore.
I have had no answers from the hosp today whatsoever. It's clear the silver nitrate treatment has set the bleeding off again but not a day in the past 3 months I have had a day of not bleeding (heavily). It's getting me down that no-one has any answers, even the surgeon and colposcopist are stumped which is worrying. Could this be a sign of early onset cervical cancer? I have CIN3 removed via Lletz under general.
If anyone can help me it would be appreciated.
