Week after LLETZ

Hi all! New here! 

So just wondering if anyone has had similar experiences?! 

I'm currently 1 week post colposcopy and LLETZ! Was super anxious about the procedure but all went really well! Felt fine after and have felt no pain at all. I only bled very lightly for 2 days and now am just weeping. I have however today suddenly felt really really tired, slightly crampy and my back hurt a enough to take pain killers which I haven't needed at all so far? Just wondering if this all sounds normal? 

Thanks in advance!
