    Awww i really feel for you, i was to have this procedure a few years ago but i backed out, friend had the same experience as you and she said never again, it did settle in time though i dont think she had swelling, cant ask her as  she emigrated and i have no contact details, they found nothing much wrong with her though. i know someone else who had this done and just got up afterwards and went shopping! some suffer and some dont, strange that.  hope your results are ok anyway.

    I had this done a few years back, I opted for no local anasthetic as I react badly to them - they bring on meniere's attacks and I didn't want vertigo to happen.

    I bled for ages afterwards but was bleeding continuously for 18 months beforehand anyway.

    I'd got large fibroids and the one blocking the cervix area was causing most of the trouble.

    They removed this fibroid and did the rest of the procedure.

    I had aches afterwards and slept for a whole 2 days off and on.

    A week later I felt better but was in full bleed again.

    Another 6 months later I opted for a total hysterectomy, I was still in pain but it was hard to tell if it was the bleeding or the procedure.

    I had something similar done to resection a large fibroid. I was tired for the first week kept nodding off, uncomfortable walking around as if I had had a Csection again.. The bloating/trapped wind was there for 2 weeks. As they could do the resection I had to go straight back to have a total hysterectomy. Now I am 7 days post op with bloating. When I asked the surgeon about it he said whatever procedure he does weather with scopes or an adominal cut there is always the trapped wind/bloating scenario for most. It baffles him as he says it is the most dibiliting thing to deal with. So see how you feel after 2 weeks drink water and eat prunes. Walk around a lot too.

    Hi hellsbells

    oh dear poor you ..

    i have a smear then Colposcopy  anually with my Gyno followed by a transvaginal scan .. ( look at ovaries and uterus etc) 

    Colposcopy is a procedure carried out after some abnormal cervical screening tests. It involves a detailed examination of the neck of the womb (cervix)...

    never had any side effects, the solution they put on cervix stings for a few seconds .. ( Colposcopy)

    Hi hells bells 

    i also had a Hysteroscopy a few years ago 

     Hysteroscopy is a procedure which uses a thin tube-like telescope to see inside the womb (uterus). It can also allow doctors to do some minor operations to the uterus.

    that lasted about 20 mins went home after, that was not too bad either ..

    some get the two mixed up .. Hysteroscopy ( look inside uterus)  and Colposcopy ( look at cervix & vaginal walls ) 

    hope you feel better soon, take a ibuprofen or paracetamol and rest..
