Hello from JustAnswer.
What was the severity of abnormal cells before the freezing
What was the result of the follow-up exam (usually done about 6 months after freezing of cervix)?
There are several possible causes of spotting. Heaviness in the abdomen is non-specific.
However, in someone with a recent freezing for dysplasia that has not yet had the follow-up appointment, the first concern is that the freezing did not get complete control of the dysplasia. Mild dysplasia is usually well controlled by freezing, but no treatment is 100%.
There are many other possible causes of spotting and heaviness, including infection, chronic inflammation, or imbalance of the female hormones. However, evaluation for these other causes would usually wait until after the re-evaluation of the cervix.
So, the follow-up appointment would be the next step in the evaluation of the spotting and heaviness and may be sufficient to explain the symptoms.
