I was just wondering how long people have taken to recover from their lletz proceedures? I had a lletz done 1 week ago, I am still having discharge and bleeding as expected, but I am still exhausted and sore. I am still needing to take painkillers every day and use a heat pad in the evenings when it gets more painful. Has anyone else needed to take them for a week post procedure?
I am also worried as I feel really tired and just not quite right, like I am going down with a virus or something. I am having discharge that is pink/brown and watery but it can be really smelly. Yesterday at work I was embarrassed as I thought people could smell me. Sorry to be graphic! Seems to smell like i have bad wind if my pad isn't changed very often. Has anyone else had this? Normal or should I see gp?
I also wondered on a different subject how long people had waited for their colposcopy? I had to wait 12weeks from my smear just to get biopsies, then another 6 weeks for results, then another month for lletz. Took from march 11th to July 24th to get colp, them appointment for lletz was on sept 17th. Seemed rather a long time to me.
Thanks for any replies xxx
