I went to the hospital on Tues this week thinking I was having a colposcopy but it was sprung on me that actually I was booked for a "treatment" (nails too please?!) called LLETZ. They'd written to me to tell me this but I never got the letter. Anyway, in hindsight it was probably better I didn't know about the procedure before going and I just bit the bullet and got on with it.
I have been reading this forum for a couple of years now (but this is my first post) and wondered if anyone is in the same situation as me - all my smears are abnormal between CIN1 and CIN2, all 5/6 of them, but every time I have had a colposcopy, there is nothing to see so no treatment. HPV has been found, but a punch biopsy has come up negative. The decision was made to go ahead with LLETZ and I should know the results in 2 weeks time.
I'm writing on here because I haven't been able to tell anyone yet - my partner is working away (and I haven't told him so not to worry), I haven't told my family and I'm in a new job. I felt ok after the LLETZ, went back to work but keeled over (fainted) after 2 hours! Is that because of the local anaesthetic - does any one know?
It would be great if there was someone out there who could say they had a similar experience to me with the abnormal smears but nothing to see?
