Just wondering how long scheduling an operation like this normally takes. It's been two weeks since my colp and a week since my consultation, where I was diagnosed with CIN II. Since I have pretty bad anxiety my doctor suggested I do a LEEP under general anesthesia ("twilight," similar to what they do with wisdom tooth extraction), which needs to be done in the hospital. He said the scheduling person would call in 24 hours. She didn't. I followed up the next day (Friday) and today (Monday). She said she is having trouble finding a provider who could do the procedure, since my doctor for whatever reason can't. I recently moved and just started seeing this doctor. He's affiliated with the hospital where I had my appendix removed so I'd still like to have it done there if possible.
What's bothering me beyond being upset and just wanting to get this over with is that I splurged on travel this year and have two nearly back-to-back trips coming up. I'm supposed to travel to London in one month (I live in Philadelphia) to visit friends for a week. Two weeks after I get home from London, my husband and i are going on a Hawaii cruise for our anniversary. I really need to be healed for that since we're doing a lot of hiking and water excursions that we really can't cancel at this point.
Even though he said I'm not an urgent case, I still don't want to wait until October. Ugh. Waiting is the worst.
