If anyone has read any of my last few posts then you know I’m due to have my LEEP procedure towards the end of next week under general anesthesia. It’s not due to any particular reason other than this is just how my gyno prefers to do it as he says it’s more comfortable for the patient.
However, as someone who has never had anesthesia before I am quite nervous about it. Especially since majority of people do just have local anesthetic and are obviously fine and claim to feel no pain, maybe are just uncomfortable. He said it was a 10 minute procedure, very quick. So I’m unsure why we can’t just do it with local?! I asked him if we could, he looked hesitant and said he really thinks everyone is better off being asleep so you aren’t as nervous. Except in my case it makes me more nervous! Lol
My fear is probably a bit irrational, as I’m afraid I won’t ever wake up or will have some bizarre rare reaction that will harm me I’m a hypochondriac and have health anxiety so I know when I verbalize this people think I’m being silly and claim that it truly is no big deal. Am
I being ridiculous? Is it really no big deal? I think my family is tuckered out listening to me say how nervous I am that something could happen to me.
Maybe I just needed to come on here and vent. Sorry yall
