Bladder discomfort after LLETZ


I had the LLETZ last Tuesday so just over a week ago.  I have just finished a course of antibiotics following an infection.  I have pain around my lower abdomen still and feel a dull ache by my bladder, I always feel I need to wee.  I am not having difficulty going tot he loo but something doesn't feel right.  Is this normal?  I want to understand what level of discomfort I should expect to be in.  I have a toddler so haven't been able to rest. I am also very bloated and feel a little sick.  The symptoms of the infection I had seem to have gone though. 

Please help.

  • Hello Cat, and thank you for posting.

    I am sorry you are still having problems after your LLETZ procedure. It can take a few days, even after antibiotics have finished sometimes for symptoms to improve. If your symptoms have continued for longer then do get in contact with your GP or the unit where you had the treatment and they will advise what should happen next.

    It is so difficult when you feel unwell and have a little one to look after too. Hopefully, you might have some help and start feeling better soon.

    If you want to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline the number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040. The lines are open from 9 am till 5 pm, Monday to Friday.

    Take care,
