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!!

Yep, it'll feel pretty different after a LLETZ. When I first felt mine, instead of a little hole, I could feel like a great big canyon there. I've felt again since, and the gap seems less, but I know it will never go away. I had my LLETZ on Aug 13. I was completely shocked, because I thought a LLETZ just took off the surface layer of cells, but it takes a big chunk. If you have a seperate "gash" in the side of yours, that would most likely be because who ever did it could see abnormal cells there throught the colposcope during the procedure. Your cervix will never be the same again, but your boyfriend shouldn't be able to tell the difference at all. I'd advise holding off on testing that theory for a couple of weeks though. My paperwork said no sex for 6 weeks, but have read of other people being told 4 weeks.
