Hi I had this procedure back in September i had the same results you had also, I didn't bleed much straight away and didn't have any major complications back pain can be quite normal but if it persists always get symptoms checked, I felt a lot better after about 6 weeks I found the pressure felt much more lifted and o stopped peeing every 10 minutes lol they took the majority of the cervix away more than i thought as I went for my follow up smear today and they said they had a good go with the LLETZ treatment lol (youve probably been told to have one 6 months after your last smear date?) I advise monitoring your symptoms and if you have any persistent symptoms after 6 weeks then contact the gp, obviously heavy bleeding or severe pain etc get advice as soon as possible. I hope all goes well for you xx

Thanks for replying, I have the heavy inside feeling so glad to hear it does pass, I have started bleeding lightly today and still have back pain. I'm awaiting my results from my lletz procedure fingers crossed they have taken it all away

Aw good luck for you results! The LLETZ is quite an affective treatment option and I'm pretty sure your in good hands! The waiting is the hardest bit I waited and my toes curled when they letter came through but it had all been removed i hope you have the same outcome and all goes well.
