I went for a colposcopy on the 20/03/2019, I thought I was just going to have biopsies done but the person I saw explained when I went into the room that due to the HPV positive result and the high-grade severe dyskaryosis it was likely I had CIN3 and that she would like to do the LLETZ procedure then and there, instead of messing me about to have to come back, I was a little shell shocked, the staff were lovely and really informative, anyway I had the procedure which I did feel some slight warmth (when I informed the nurse she stopped) and I have had some slight bleeding and cramps, I went back to work the next day (Thursday) but since then I’ve had quite severe persistent lower back pain? I don’t want to ring the colposcopy unit and seem overdramatic, I’ve been taking co-codamol and max strength ibuprofen and it helps slightly, has anyone else experienced anything similar?!
I’m also still very anxious about my results they informed me it could be another 4-6 week wait for these, what have other people’s time scales been like from procedure to results and what happens from there, I know I have to go for a smear in 6 months time but unfortunately I couldn’t ask her anything else as they were already running late.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
