I'm booked in for LLETZ on Monday coming up - literally feel sick and anxious every time I think about it!
I have been doing lots of research and have found some worrying stuff about side effects after - aside from increased risk of miscarriage/pre-term labour, I've also found information about decreased sex drive/sensation afterwards.
People online have been saying to ensure you do your research into your doctor before having the procedure but I am having it on the NHS so I can't choose. i found out that a nurse is performing mine - I'm just a bit worried as I expected it to be a consultant/gynaecologist.
Is it the norm for a nurse to perform these procedures and would it be acceptable to ask how many she has done beforehand?
I really don't want to be rude or offensive at all, I'm just worried about the after-effects and feeling super anxious about it all.
19/07/19 - Smear showed moderate dyskaryosis and high grade HPV
09/09/19 - first Colposcopy - showed mostly CIN1 with a small area of CIN2. Also had a benign polyp which was causing bleeding between periods
23/03/19 - second Colposcopy - referred to MDT and have now been offered the LLETZ. Practically the same results but possibly more 'convincing' CIN2.
TBC - LLETZ treatment.
