Hello I am new here and had a few questions for the ladies who have already been through this.
Basically I had my lletz under GA on the 18th. Everything went fine and I was actually thinking that I had done well having no pain or major bleeding.
About 5 days after the lletz I started having some cramping and the bleeding got heavier although still barely enough for a pad.
The pain settled but the bleeding didn't stop and on Thursday I woke up and found I had bled quite heavily in the night. It was brown so I am assuming it was old blood and it was about what you would expect from a heavy period. I had no bleeding during the day but on that night again I had heavy bleeding and this time it was a mixture of brown and red and I was also getting pain going from my tummy into my groin and into the top of my leg. I called the colposcopy unit and they said to take ibuprofen for the pain and that the bleeding was normal. I was still concerned so I called my GP and have an appointment for Thursday.
After a day the pain settled and is now nowhere near as bad but the bleeding is concerning me. At the moment I had small but bright red bleeds during the day then in a morning I either wake up to a heavy brown or red bleed. It doesn't have a gross smell it just has a strong period smell if you know what I mean.
My period is t due for two weeks so could this be my period early or is this kind of bleeding normal after lletz. I went to the bathroom just now and there is bit of red spotting on the pad but quite a bit when I wipe.
I am just feeling really wiped out by this now. I had only just finished a period and then had this done and have been bleeding ever since. I am at the docs in Thursday to get checked out but I just needed a bit if reassurance. I should also mention that the pain seems to be mainly on my right side and feels a bit like stitch And it isn't there all the time it comes and goes.
sorry if any of this was tmi i just didn't know where else to turn.
