*waves* hi everyone!
I’ve just joined here as I don’t actually have anyone to talk to about this stuff in real life. Sooo a bit of my background... I'm 26 and got around to going for my first smear in March and found it was the most excruciating experience imaginable... I convinced myself it would be all clear and that I'd avoid any further smears and just take my chances with cancer going forwards. Buuut then I got the result of severe dyskaryosis and went for a colposcopy & biopsies in April (another traumatic experience!) I've now been told I need a LLETZ but I know almost nothing other than the procedure and my appointment time and am getting more worried the closer it gets!
I know it's usually under LA, but can be GA... when did other people find out which they'll get? I've not had any indication yet - I think I'd like GA if given the option! Also, how long did you have to spend in hospital on the day? How did you find the procedure compared to the colposcopy? Sorry, I don't know anyone else who's been through it yet so sorry if my questions are a bit silly, any advice would be really appreciated as I'm a bit scared!
Thanks :)) Chloe
