This is obviously a TMI thread, so hoping only people with some experience of the two procedures, or someone in the health profession who knows of these procedures will be able to help me on this one. It's really embarassing but its really upset me and I don't know what I should do if I should do anything at all...
Basically I had an appointment for a colcoscopy. It has been about a month since I found out I needed one and a month ago I got a very basic leaflet outlining the procedure, most of which I'd forgotten by the time I had my appointment today. During the procedure I was really uncomfortable and trying not to think about what was happening, but remember thinking "I don't remember reading about this in the leaflet" but doubted myself too much to say anything. It's only as they sent me packing with a leaflet on what they'd just done that I realised I'd been given a LLETZ procedure instead. My basic research has suggested that this was the wrong procedure as I do not have the problems that a LLETZ is used to treat. A LLETZ is far more invasive than a colcoscopy also and requires local anaesthetic. Lots more repurcussions too, such as having to go 4 weeks without sex (as opposed to 1 week with a colcoscopy). I'm pretty certain that they've performed the wrong procedure on me and I'm actually devestated. I feel like I shouldn't be as upset as I am though... I can't find anything on the internet about my specific problem and don't know what to do next about it all.. any help?
