First of all I've got to say I'm a man and I'm writing on behalf of my girlfriend. I've read a lot on this forum but i am just looking to hear from anyone else who has experienced infection after LLETZ.
My girlfriend had the LLETZ procedure 19 days ago and at first thought she was healing in line with expectation, but the bleeding became heavier in the second week along with the back pain/cramps.
She has now been given antibiotics to treat the infection, (we're on day 3 of those today) but has felt that today has probably been the worst day for cramps/bleeding and just generally feeling terrible. She's a real trooper and i know she wouldn't even mention pain unless it was really bad!
I should say that she was told her cells were CIN3 which from what I've read requires the deepest "burn". Sorry if i sound like an idiot, I'm not sure of the wording.
So, sorry for rambling...has anyone experienced a timeline of healing regarding the actual infection after LLETZ? I don't think she was told to expect to feel as washed out and in pain after starting the course of antibiotics as she was before she took the tablets.
If anyone has experienced this and has an opionion on when to contact the doc again or whether this is normal i would be so grateful to hear from you as it is horrible seeing her suffer.
Thank you for reading, any advice would be appreciated...at the moment I'm just trying to ensure she doesn't have to do anything other than enjoy the sofa but i know she's worried about what is "normal" to expect in terms of the next few days.
