I'm glad your appointment went ok :) I felt a bit rubbish (shaky, teary, period pains like I used to get as a teenager and wasnt on the pill lol) for the rest of the day of my treatment and the day after but it does wear off - you've defniitely done the right thing taking the day off work :) maybe go for a little walk later to get some fresh air but definitely chill out :)
Like you I found the screen thing quite interesting, but I'm always better when these things arent happening to me, so I did feel a bit faint when I looked haha. Did you watch the loop treatment on the screen or was it turned off?
I didn't think to ask how big an area my nurse removed - I might ask the nurse when I go for my checkup (couple of weeks, aargh!)! from what I saw on the screen the WHOLE of my cervix seemed to be a milky colour so I guess it was quite big (as a portion of a cervix... for some reason I seem to imagine it as HUGE becuase it was on the big screen lol).
In terms of what to expect next, everyone is different, but in my experience I seemed to spend AGES waiting for any sort of discharge or blood, I had cramps bad enough to take painkillers for a day and a half (by the second day I was only taking 1 tablet (which is my norm, I hardly ever take 2... these cramps were beauties and needed two at the start lol))
By ages, I think it was about a week, then I had some flakyness and more discharge than normal, then there was what can only be described of as a scab (eugh) and then I started bleeding on and off (not loads, but i cant compare it to a period as i use tampons usually, but enough for pads rather than liners - I wore night time pads all the time for a bit of extra security). This lasted for about 5 weeks until I had my period (I was due on the week after the LLETZ but my nurse said to run two pill packs together so I could differnentiate the LLETZ healing from my period) then stopped after that.
I kept a chart on my calendar of how my discharge was (aren't we lucky being girls!!! Men don't have to keep a chart of their penis!!!) so although I didnt feel like it I could tell it was improving. Also, don't be surprised or worried if you bleed more after exercise - I stopped going to the gym/zumba for the whole 6 weeks (the nurse said it should be ok after about a week but I just didnt feel like it to be honest lol) and one time about 4 weeks in I was feeling energetic and jogged up ONE flight of stairs at work and all of a sudden...gush...nice bit of bright red blood. Not a waterfall or anything but everything had been slowing down and it took me quite by surprise!
If you have any questions or anything, just ask :) x x x x x
