Cryo after-effects?
Jan 16, 2009
I was diagnosed with high risk HPV some time ago, and my doctor did a colposcopy and biopsy as well as cryo-cauterization. This was about a month ago. I only found out later that it was odd she would have done the cryo before knowing the biopsy results, but at the time she made it sound like it was normal procedure. Anyway, a month after the procedure i can feel what seems like a scab on my cervix. I'm wondering if it should have healed by now or if this is abnormal. Naturally, I want to go to a doctor, but there's no way I'm going back to that one, and I'm having trouble finding someone I can trust. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Also, how long should you wait to have sex after undergoing cryo? This doctor told me 3 weeks, but then an onc/gyn friend of my mother's said i should wait a couple months for it to heal completely. Any advice?
