Hey everyone, I’m new on here I hope you don’t mind me posting this in desperation and I hope you can bear with me if this is something that is asked all the time…
I had an abnormal smear back in March with suspected cin3. I had a colposcopy and lletz treatment this Monday. I took it easy after and didn’t have much bleeding after but roll on two days later when I tried to go back to work and I feel lots of continuous gushes of red blood. I contact my consultant who asks me to come to the hospital so he can take a look.
He says I have breakthrough active bleeding in three spots and that he will recauterise and all will be fine. I was feeling dreadful so agreed and was sent home with some zidoval antibiotic gel to apply for the next five nights.
I was very sore last night after and just took it as easy as I could on the sofa. Applied the gel before bed and woke up this morning happy to find a much darker and lesser amount of bleeding.
I have done next to nothing today but as evening approaches I am getting sorer again and the bright red gushes of blood have returned.
I am at my wits end… is this normal?? Has anyone else had such excessive red bleeding after a lletz treatment? I’m so tired and frustrated that things aren’t going as they should. Any answers will be very much appreciated. Xx
