After reading your posts for the past 3 weeks since finding out I have severe dyskaryosis to having my colposcopy/LLETZ treatment today, I thought I would finally post, firstly to say thank you for all the info and easing my mind and keeping me calm, and secondly to raise a few concerns I have.
I had my LLETZ treatment today, and to be completely honest it was slightly more uncomfortable than I was expecting. Maybe this was because I've never had issues with smears and I got off to an uncomfortable start because he could not insert the "thing" in properly so it was uncomfortable for me (he had to use a narrower one in the end). The injections were not too bad which I was told is the worst part, but unfortunately for me I felt a burn sensation as soon as the treatment started. Whether he just caught the wall or the local aneasthetic had not kicked in quick enough but it hurt me a lot which added to my discomfort. The burn only hurt for split second and then I didn't feel a thing for the rest of the treatment.
I don't meant to scare or worry anyone awaiting their treatment, but I just wondered if anyone else experienced this?
Also, from reading the posts over the last few weeks it seems many of you received lots of information/talk from your consultant. My one said absolutely nothing the moment he looked into his microscope thing, just made glances to the nurse a lot. So after I asked if there was anything he could tell me from today from what he could see and he just said no and I'd have to wait for my results. Which has panicked me a bit...was anyone else's like this?
It seemed like he was doing the treatment for a while, but as I am severe I am guessing there is more to remove. I asked about sport as I play football and although the aftercare sheet says do not do vigorous sport for 3 days, he told me not to for 4 weeks! (gutted). Again, was anyone else told not to play sport for this long?
I guess I am just concerned over the whole negative vibe I felt during my appointment today. Particularly the lack of talk and information he gave compared to others on here and wondered if any of you had similar experiences. I keep wondering was he saying nothing because he knew it was bad?
Anyway, no point worrying until results (6 weeks!) I know, but that's easier said than done as I am sure every single one of you know.
Thank you in advance,
