so im 25 years old, went for my first smear in December, got abnormal results and had a colposcopy, had two biopsies and confirmed cin2. Now have to have lletz treatment, however I'm terrified. The colposcopy was a very scary experience for me, I cried throughout and was definitely very difficult for the doctor to cope with because of my anxiety towards the procedure. I realise i was overreacting because in the end it wasn't too bad, however I have a huge phobia of needles and understand that the lletz treatment needs a local anesthetic. I also could have this under General but that means going in twice and waiting for appointments for longer (and the whole idea of being asleep is scary alone). Can anybody give me detailed information of what actually happens at the lletz treatment? I would really appreciate having all the information from somebody who has been through this. I can't sleep because of this worry and I keep getting tearful. just want to get the whole thing over with but dont know how im going to cope through the procedure because of my phobia. Any advice would be really appreciated.
