"Kind staff but I needed more aftercare information"

About: St Richard's Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I had a cervical colposcopy and Lletz procedure done in May. I was very worried about the procedure, and did not really know what the outcome of my treatment would be.

Although they were clearly in a hurry to treat me and did not want to wait (which I did) they were very good to me and very kind. My biopsy results were back within 10 days. I felt very happy with my treatment.

The only thing I would change is the information given for aftercare at home. I was told it would take a day or two to recover but I bleed for over 6 weeks. It would have helped if i had been more prepared for this.
