found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

I had cryotherapy last week. I was told it would be similiar to the colposcopy but I found it much much more painful esspec on my right side and I threw up twice. The doc said ppl rarely throw up. Also every website I go to says the test should hurt much I'm wondering if its just me. I hope I never have to have this surgery repeated, has anyone else?

Re: found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

I had it done back in February, and it was not bad at all--just take lots of ibuprofrin a couple hours before. I think the colposcopy was much worse! I know it's stressful, but if you relax as much as possible, it will help.

Re: found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

Hi, for me the colposcopy and biopsies were much worse than the treatment.

ILoveNY2, please don't be too anxious about the treatment. Obviously it is not a nice thing to go through but I also think its very unusual for people to find that the treatment is worse than the biopsy taking. Your cervix is numbed (which you don't really feel happening) and it is more a strange sensation getting the treatment than actual pain of any kind.

Thanks everyone. Now maybe I can get a little sleep tonight. I hope you're feeling better Katharine.

Re: found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

I feel so much better and all that. Hoodluck ny2, it hurt me a lot but others seem to disagree. I just hope to never have to have it again.

Re: found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

Well, I had it done today and I'm happy to report that I felt nothing except a little pressure. They told me to take 4 Advil before I went in and I broke out in severe hives, which was just lovely, but other than that it went very well. A couple of good things came out of today; hopefully all the bad cells are now gone and I now know I can never take Advil again.

Re: found cryrotherapy to be quite painful

good I'm glad it went better for you. I took a advil before hand but I think not eating much that day may have been part of my problem.

Hi ILoveNY2, I'm so glad it went ok for you, I thought it would.

You poor thing breaking out in hives!! As if its not stressful enough getting treatment!

I hope coming on here didn't get you even more worried about the treatment.xx
