I don’t know why but I am a little nervous to post on here... since having my Lletz treatment 5 days ago I have been feeling a bit of pain. not like discomfort it's more like any time I move about I get a stabbing pain in my lower abdomen, I phoned an out of hours GP on thurs 2days after the appointment and he said I will be feeling pain like that for 3-7 days after the procedure but any information given to me by the colposcopist said I shouldn’t be feeling these types of pains and to consult a doctor, she also said that I would be feeling fine to work the next day I haven’t been to work since the treatment, mainly because of the flu but partly because of the pain. I am finding this all really frustrating and too much for me to deal with, I am getting worried about infection. (3Days after treatment still in pain and just wanted answers) contacted my doctor, she didn’t even have a vague idea about Lletz treatment and asked me to take the leaflet that they gave me at my treatment to my appointment. During the appointment I told her I was worried about infection and she told me that it is probably thrush due to some other things that is TMI for my first ever post!!!!!!!! I asked her what the reason for the pain is and she didn’t answer and then was like I’ll just swab you to check for infection. when she did it was really sore and jolting and then said I think its just thrush but ill send this off for your peace of mind. it would give me piece of mind she is right but at the moment I don’t care about my piece of mind I care about the fact that I am in pain and I’m 95% sure I shouldn't be. it's making me feel like I am going crazy. and also making me really angry. I feel bad enough about putting off my smear for far too long and being bombarded with the severity of my situation completely over whelmed me, without the doctors not actually doing anything. I have to wait until Wednesday now to find out which is fine but what if the infection (or my mental health aha) gets worse? I’m trying not to think too much about it but I just need support and I don't feel like I am getting it... my family are really supportive, but they just don't understand the way I am feeling.
If anyone can rant with me, give me any advice or anything? I am dying to chat to someone who has been in a similar situation to this.
Thanks in advance...... x
