"LLETZ treatment"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I had my LLETZ treatment done today and the staff is amazing, I was very nervous, but the nurses were great and talked to me about it and they calmed me down a lot. When it came to procedure now I don't even know what I was so afraid of! It is done under local anesthetic so you don't feel a thing! Even tho my partner was with me one of the nurses stood next to me the whole time talking to me and holding my hand which made me feel much better. And when the doctor said it is all done I couldn't believe it! The whole procedure took not more than 5 minutes and I was out of the hospital all happy. Ladies, don't be worrying your selfs and reading all bad reviews on internet, because it is not like that at all! I wouldn't be worried to do it again now. Thanks to all the great staff that works in here :)
