i had lletz under GA yesterday as the week before I was scheduled to have lletz with local and on examination the doctor said it was too severe and close to my vaginal walls. A second doctor came in for a 2nd opinion and they both agreed GA but urgent and only with a specific lead colposcopist surgeon which worried me slightly.
I have high grade CGIN and CIN and HPV
Yesterday was fine just quite a wait on the ward and feeling dreadful waking up for, GA very dizzy and sick and hot. My mum wheeled me out on a wheelchair to my boyfriends car and it was awful I was very grumpy and very sleepy.
feeling slight discomfort today, feel like I've had surgery on my bladder/bowls rather than lady parts!
The surgeon came to speak to me before and advised what would happen and that they will only take what is necessary and will go slightly further back but not too much as I'm only 24 (this was my first smear) and I do not have children.
i have a wait of four weeks but if I need more treatment, i.e if the margins aren't clear or they find something more severe, I really don't know how to feel as it's such an anxious and painful process the actual treatment and waiting etc and also not being able to do every day things.
My my boyfriend is being very supportive and my parents and work are great too.
The surgeon didn't come and speak to me after and they said that she would, do you think I could call the hospital and ask her to explain how it went?
She said before she may have to put some dissolvable stitches in etc but I've been told nothing.
sorry to ramble on. I'm also wondering how much time off work you had? They told me I can self certify my sick note for the first week but I was hoping to go back in Friday.
im a vet receptionist but also run the grooming parlour and pet shop so lifting is done on a daily basis and handling dogs (helping fit harnesses etc on customers dogs) but luckily I can sit down quite a lot if necessary.
many thanks to anyone who has read this xxx (also I've typed the lying down in my iPad so sorry for any mistakes!)
