It is my first time posting on here! Just want to share my experience and ask some questions J
I had a colposcopy and Lletz procedure for CIN II one week ago today under GA. It was my first time ever in theatre so I was terrified! Everything went ok though (except that apparently my jaw clenched while under and they struggled getting the pipe in my mouth! So I have a bit of a sore throat) When I woke up I had period type pain and felt slightly violated and uncomfortable! Was able to go home I few hours later took some pain meds and slept it off. All and all not such a bad experience. Actually relieved that it is over!
I felt much better the next day…slight cramps and a bit tired but nothing to horrendous. The last couple of days I have had only a bit of spotting which later stopped and had a mild brownish discharge. And I haven’t felt the need to take any pain meds since.
Something weird happened las night though! Woke up for a wee and had a lot of air come out my vagina! Freaked me out! Has this happened to anyone else? After that I was in pain but nothing that needed any meds so far. The spotting is back and a little heavier than before. Having on and of cramps as well. My problem is I don’t know when my period is due. I went of the pill recently so everything is a bit out of sorts. Will I know the difference between bleeding and feeling pain from the procedure and my period? I’m getting weird looks from the people at work because I’m running to the loo every 5 min! The whole pad wearing thing is also making me feel very icky!
Thanks in advance!
