I had LLetz procedure on 20-10-14 after which I suffered an infection and now feel like I've been run over by a bus!
my smear revealed severe dyskaryosis resulting in needing a Lletz, I've previously had biopsy 8 years ago but had no problem after this.
My problems started when the doctor injected me with local anaesthetic, I instantaneously felt it running through me and the hot sweats, heart palpitations began along with the wobbly legs.
The procedure I think went well although hard to tell. I felt awful from that moment on.
I don't know if it was the anaesthetic or an infection but that night and the following days have been a struggle. I didn't have much pain but hot, cold, unsteady, wobbly, rapid heart beat, feeling sick, not wanting to eat, extremely tired. I was hoping to return to work the next day but no chance of that I've felt so unwell.
I could hardly manage to make it to GP who reported I have high temp and tachycardia, rapid heart rate. He thought that I had an infection from procedure and not a reaction from the anaesthetic which is what I thought it was.
He suggested I have antibiotics which have helped but now have diarrhoea as a consequence.
I don't appear to have found any information to suggest that I should feel like this as a result of the Lletz procedure and feeling pretty crap. I wonder whether anyone else has had the same symptoms?
THanks, I'm new to the forum.
