Post Lletz...Cervix healing normally??

Hi everyone, I am new to the sight and can not tell you how greatful I am to have found it!!!

I am 25 and went for my first smear in september, within a week of my smear I had already had a letter saying I had severe dyskaryosis, an appointment for colposcopy clinc and then the following week I had Lletz....Well that was something I wish I never have to go through.

I am now 2 weeks post Lletz (still have no results!!!!) and my recovery doesnt seem to have been too bad. I had the initial bleeding and pain the first few days and since then it has just been a bit of discharge (sorry tmi). My concern is the state of my cervix!! I had a bath last night (I know im not allowed but ive been kneeling in the bath as my shower is broken) I decided to have a feel of my cervix, more out of curiosity, I wanted to know if there was any pain when it was touched (hoping to resume to "normality" with my boyfriend asap) but I was quite shocked and concerned about how it felt. Usualy it is like a small donut (with a smaller hole obvs) but it felt like the hole in the centre was huge and it also felt like there was a big gash in the side of it. The only good thing was that there was no pain at all when touching it but now im scared that i have a completey deformed cervix!!!!! Has anyone else experienced this or have any info they can give me??? its totally put me off resuming my sex life until its back to normal!!

Hi Vikkie

I sent you a reply the other day, but it doesn't seem to have shown up. The fact is that with a LLETZ, a chunk of your cervix is cut out to remove the abnormal cells. It will not grow back. Mine now feels like it has a big canyon running across it instead of a tiny little hole. From the first time I felt it til now, it does feel like it's a smaller canyon, but the part that's been cut out will not grow back. However, this doesn't mean I am deformed in anyway, and neither are you. We've both had a medical procedure to ensure our ongoing health, and the only people who ever really need to know about it (apart from the doctors, of course) are us. Your boyfriend should not even be able to tell the difference. Even women who've had their whole cervix removed have said their sex life hasn't changed at all, and that their partners can't tell the difference.

I hope that you get your results really soon and that they're good and your margins are clear. Don't worry about how your cervix feels now. I bet you never even thought about it before this when you were having sex, and you don't need to start feeling any different about it now. *hugz*

You have been very lucky to have been diagnosed and treated so quickly! I had my abnormal smear in June and it took until September to finally get a diagnosis of cin 3 and October to have lletz! Had a lot of waiting and changed appointments :(
You are braver than me! It will be 2 weeks tomorrow for me having lletz and I don't want to know what's going on down there yet! Lol. I think maybe as it's still all so recent it is still healing and may not be quite as odd as u think once swelling etc goes away :)
