Hi lovely ladies
Today i went for lletz treatment and wanted to try reassure anyone waiting.
Firstly the nurses were lovely, although i did find making small talk about christmas a little strange with my legs in the air so asked them if i coukd just lay with my eyes closed which worked for me.
Firstly a needle was used to numb the cervix, nothing too bad a slight sting sensation but nothing more than a numb mouth for tooth problems (if anything a little easier)
The adrenaline was strange, i felt very shaky and could feel my heart beat getting faster (i think my fitbit thought i was put for a run!!) But within a few minutes it passed.
The actual procedure, I didnt feel anything, it was like a warm feeling, obviously i could feel someone "was there" and that something "was being done" but no pain.
Was all over in 10 mins.
7hrs on and at the moment i have slight cramping nothing too bad yet but have managed to just sit and relax all afternoon.
I do now however have to wait up to 4 weeks for the results (maybe longer due to xmas period) I will try not to let it over take my life as it has done up to this point.
I know everyone is different but if this has reassured anyone over the procedure than thats good. I certainly think my head made it a lot worse than it actually was!!
Good luck all on treatment and results
