Posting to share my experiences to hopefully chat to some people, and also share stories with people reading the forums. I have been lurking on here for weeks through all my ups and downs!
I had my LLETZ two and a half weeks ago and am now feeling so much better (had a lot of pain and was treated for suspected infection). Now I'm waiting for the results which is killing me. I thought this was the last step (and hopefully it is) before another smear in 6 months. It all escalated quickly from a low grade smear right to CIN3. I keep telling myself it's all formalities and in the name of prevention!
Also suffering badly with my IBS this year which is now making me wake up randomly in the night being sick (last night was the last episode). I suffer with depression and this year hasn't been a good one. Normally I go to the gym to help my mood but because of healing I can't atm (discharge has got heavier so not any time soon)!
So many things going on in my head right now. So would anyone please like to chat? Share experiences even just offload so we all know we are not alone!
How long did people wait for the results of their LLETZ? I'm east Midlands told up to 6 weeks. Also where your punch biopsy results pretty much accurate in line with the results of the LLETZ?
Thanks for reading my essay and thank you in advance for - hopefully - replying!
Lots of love to all on here who provide so much support and understanding x
