Firstly I would liketo thank this site, as last night I was getting worried about my symptoms post my lletz on Monday . Thanks to this site I realised that my symptoms were definitely regaerded by most as signs of infection, basedon a few threads I read. So I visited the out of hrs doctors and iy was confirmed so I have now been issued antibiotics.
Truth be told I don't cope very well with any medical attention near my foofoo. But to be honest I was made to feel like a complete fusspot when I asked just a cpl of questions the consultant clearly wasn't keen or able to answer.
My lletz was unfortunately quite unpleasant (I was nervous anyway) but they set me up with local anaesthetic and what not. Then as she went in with the 'pencil' the machine didn't work :( after they farted about for a bit they said that they will need me to rebook. The problem we had was that my mil had come up from Cornwall to look after my 2yr old for the day and my husband had taken two days holiday (his last two for the yr) so bless him, he did step up and ask them to try and fix it. Luckily 30 minutes later they managed to sort it.
PProblem was, mid procedure the anaesthetic wore off! So not the best experience.
Anyway I drew a line under it, and found strength in the fact it was for the greater good.
Days past, as much as I tried to 'take it easy' I had no family/ friends to help so with a two year old to look after it wasn't easy to do. I was in constant pain, but lined up against my previous cesarean experience I judged it as minimal. But it felt like a mix between period pain, really bad thrush and open wound. The pain isn't where I would expect the cervix to be. Its on the left side of my groin and is mirrored in lower back pain. I felt really achy dizzyand sore. not to mention the dodgy discharge. I put it down to being normal and in my head a bit.
Thanks to pain relief and two sets of antibiotics, I should get over it in a couple of days. My biggest concern is my fertility (apart from the obvious) I was worried enough about the lletz procedure but now with the infection.
My question is have any of u lovely ladies had similar experience but gone on to have lots of babies? And is it odd that my pain is all on one side?
Thank you to anyone who can help xx
