Hi there MrsS,
How are you feeling? Thought about you today, probably TMI but I’ve just come on and I’m in a lot of pain and it’s gushing and it reminded me about the day I got my hemorrhage, as a result of infection after the 2nd LLETZ. Got a letter last Friday saying that my check up has been booked at the colposcopy for mid April and I’m sure it’s psychosomatic but for some reason this time the period feels heavier and I’m in much more pain than usual.
Sorry if I’m ranting a bit but ever since Friday I have been an emotional wreck and just felt like a good old natter. And don’t want to worry my partner or friends as they all would be sending me to A&E again…. Was a very weird one with my infection… Happened exactly 14 days after my 2nd LLETZ, was leaving work to go for some dinner with friends and then to the cinema… The bleeding by this point had stopped and I was walking on a cloud nine…. Got to the restaurant, needed to go to the ladies, stood up and slush… By the time we got to the pictures I was changing a pad every 30 minutes. By the time M was being shot at Bond’s residence it was more like a pad every 5 minutes. I just got my hand bag, texted my friends that I wasn’t feeling great and walked to the A&E… Walked! I must have been in shock. The lovely doctor made me jump the queue, seeing what a mess I was. Got admitted to women’s ward around midnight, they tried to stop the bleeding with silver bits and gauze pack. By 2 am I had bled through the gauze pack and they send me down to the operating theater, luckily I was given my own room. Few stitches later, 4 pints of blood transfusion and loads of morphine, I was back home within 5 days.
I’m sorry again if I’m just ranting but it’s been almost 4 months now and I think the lack of communications from the hospital, the fact I had to go to my GP to get results from both biopsies, I think I’m just scared. Scared of potential that they might have missed something and scarred of the fact that there is a chance this could happen to me again if I need another LLETZ. And I’m a though lass, trust me but losing so much blood in a space of 8 hours leaves you traumatized.
So, as I said before, if you feel that something is not right, go to the docs and please let us know how you’re getting on x
