Two days ago, i went in for lletz treatment which was very traumatic. The loop didnt seal the wound and i bled very heavily for about 45 mins while 2 colposcopist tried to use what they call balls to burn the wound closed. They kept saying it was normal but where very stressed and where running in and out of the room for different bits of new equiptment. At one point my cervix came out of the speculum and it was a panick to get hold of it again, where they had to use a Lot of pressure to keep it in place. The pain was awful, they gave me extra anasthetic 3 times, i felt like i was going to pass out. I was in a bit of a days afterwards and they made me stay on site afterwards to monitor the bleeding and fed me plenty of sugar. They didnt say much after except that the one lady would call me later to make sure i was ok. She didnt call me that day or since either. She gave me the number for emergiencies and said i need to go home and take it easy because id lost a lot of blood. I have a leaflet wich has her name on it and 10-12 weeks written on in pen but she didnt really say anything else. I had a big blood clot when i got home but no bleeding since. I think i have thrush now and i have a very dry vulva too. And awful back ache and pain in my pee pipes.
On top of all of that, the whole thing has confused me as to why ive even had it.
In 2021 i tested positive for hpv with no cell changes.
In 2022 i tested positive with cell changes. I had a colposcopy where they took a biopsy. But the results where inconclusive because the biopsy was inadequate. I had to go back in a year for a cloposcopy and the smear would be done there.
In febuary, i went for colposcopy. She couldnt see anything, didnt take a biopsy because there was no signs of hpv. She did my smear. She did the normal swab one and an extra brush one that goes inside the cervix entrance. I went home thinking, happy days, nothing wrong.
Then i get a phone call, my smear is showing high grade severe cell changes and i need lletz treatment. Wtf??
Then i get a letter. The biopsy results show cin3 and i need treatment. Again, wft? I didnt have a biopsy!!!
I called the hospital and they apologised and said theyve sent the wrong letter, i should ignore it but still do need the lletz due to smear result, even though colposcopy was fine.
So thats where im at now. 2 days since a very traumatic llets treatment that went wrong for an unknown reason!!!? (I did actually bleed a lot when i had the biopsy a year ago but somehow there wernt any notes about this!?l)
Im 35, i havent had any children yet and im just sat here stressing that all that burning could have ruined my cervix and chances of getting pregnant (chances are slim anyway due to thin uterine lining) and for not even good reason really?? I cant call them or my g.p coz its good friday and wont have any hope till tuesday now. Im all over the place emotionally, the whole experience has me shook right up. I cant stop crying or worrying.
Has anyone else had this kind of experience?
Im pretty sure its much more straight forward for most people and i have heard lots of positive stories of it being not nice but totally worth it. Im just struggling to see anything positive right now
