I didn't have a cold knife. I had a leep for cin3. My first follow up was at 6mths. I was also surprised they didn't see a need to "check" sooner as the book I bought said 3 mths for check up. But, I didn't question their decision, and so far, their judgement was right in my case, I healed well. That was almost 7mths ago.
Normal activity for me was suggested at 2 weeks, yet I went 3 weeks, to be on the safe side. Easier to prevent then try to fix right?
I know this reply is not really what you asked for, yet i'm hoping it might help you.
Thanks for the response, lvnglf. My doctor also said two weeks, which it has been as of today. However, Tuesday night I started getting rather heavy bleeding and cramping. Soaked through the bedsheets last night sweating. I don't seem to have a temperature, and I'm not over a pad an hour, which is their "rule" for follow-up.
I am going to lay low and see if this passes. I wonder if I accidentally overdid something. My husband thinks I "reached" too much in kitchen cupboards.
