Firstly - I'm new here and have been finding this forum a great source of comfort and information, so thank you!
Two weeks ago I found out that my smear results had come back stating high grade severe dyskaryosis. A week ago I paid privately to have a colposcopy where they performed LLETZ treatment under local anisthetic. I was told a 'small patch' of cells had been removed and I would get my biopsy results in 3 weeks.
How much pain have people had after LLETZ? The leaflets say that in a day or so I should be able to go back to life as normal, but I'm finding that the more I'm up and about the more I get cramps, back/hip pain and general 'heavyness' down there. I don't feel as if I'm having any abnormal discharge or bleeding, so I don't think it could be an infection. Plus I am already on antibiotics (CoAmoxiclav) for a kidney/water infection that I had before the LLETZ.
Is it normal to still be in pain over a week later?
I'm trying to take it as easy as possible but it's not that easy when you have to go about your daily job as usual :(
