I'm sorry you're back (in the nicest possible way!). Sarah is absolutely right, the worst part of the LLETZ was the lead up and my worry about it. As you've already had a colp. you kind of know what to expect, they'll do the same thing and put solution on your cervix to highlight the affected area, then a pad thing gets taped to your leg (something to do with the electric current used in the LLETZ) and don't be surprised if during the LLETZ this gets warm - I freaked out but it just means its working lol. I don't remember feeling anything at the injection (my mum said they used a gel, but I'm sure the nurse mentioned an injection) but this is probably because I dug my fingernails so hard into my hands that I almost drew blood - distraction is a brilliant thing!
Then you wait a minute or two for the drugs to work, I didn't get shaky legs or a racing heart as some people have, but my little finger and the very tip of my ring fingers did start to tingle (very odd lol) but again, prefectly normal. The nurse then tests to see if you can feel anything. You can feel a sensation but no pain (like when you have a tooth out at the dentist, you can feel tuggng but it doen't hurt, or when you put earrings in if you've had your ears pierced for a while, you know somethings happening but it doesnt hurt).
Then the actual LEETZ takes like a minute, the suction machine thing is loud but I didn't smell anything and it was over before I knew it. Then there's a minute or two wait to make sure the bleeding has been cauterised, then they sit you up really slowly (you're in charge of how slow you go and they don't rush you which is great) and a nurse will get you a drink because you'll be a bit delicate, like after giving blood. (Good god I've just realised this post is huge!!! Sorry!!!) Then they'll talk to you about 'aftercare' and stuff (don't do heavy excercise for a bit, don't get battered for a bit, don't take asprin for a bit, don't have a bath for 4-6 weeks, don't have sex for 4 - 6 weeks etc) and then they'll take you to a recovery room where you can sit for as long as you want.
Again, like Sarah said, having been through it once if I needed to again I'd do it in a heartbeat. It's not the most pleasant thing I've ever done but it's by far not the worst - ear piercing is MUCH much worse!!
If you've got any questions or worries before/after/at all just PM me x x x
