I have been reading conversations on this forum regarding how people have dealt with this procedure and found them helpful so I thought I would join.
I am 24 and had my first smear in December 2015. Didn’t give it much thought as I thought it would be fine…
Came back abnormal so I had biopsies taken which came back as cin3.
Last Monday I had the lletz procedure.
I was extremely anxious when I had the biopsies and was also anxious for the lletz procedure. Even though I kind of knew what to expect.
I am currently waiting the results of the lletz procedure.
But a week later this Monday just gone I felt unwell so I visited my gp and was told I have an infection from the procedure so now on a course of antibiotics.
I feel just awful for feeling how I do as I know it’s a good thing having the cells removed and that everything should now be fine.
I just can’t help but feeling a little hard done by that this has happened. I know!! Ridiculous!!
I feel sad, unsociable and just really low. I don’t want to go to work - I have gone though as I have a mortgage to pay.
I don’t know if it’s because I have had a few medical problems the last couple of years - diagnosed as celiac and with osteoporosis as well as suffering with excema.
I have a huge feeling of disgust in myself for feeling this way as many people go through and are going through much worse.
Has anyone else felt this way or am I just wallowing in self pity?
Sorry this is so long.
