Just wanted to make a post and update that I had my LEEP done under general this morning. I was so nervous and worried about the anesthesia, but everyone was right and it was such a breeze. I don’t even remember falling asleep it happened so fast. Next thing I knew I was waking up and being wheeled into a recovery room where my Mom was waiting for me.
I got home and have slept off and on all day, they were definitely right about feeling groggy. I used the bathroom before leaving the doctors office and had a small amount of blood but nothing major. I haven’t had any blood or discharge as of yet at home, just the Monsel solution when I go to the bathroom and wipe, doctor said that was to be expected. I’m sorry if that’s TMI for anybody, i just wanted to post about it in case anyone ever comes back to read others experiences for comfort or reassurance.
Other than that, I am having some cramping like I’m coming on my period (am supposed to in the next few days but I know this is from the LEEP) not bad enough to take painkillers but I have been using a heating pad also feel a bit tender/sore down below but I think it must be from the speculum inserted for longer than what a normal smear would be done.
Any advice or do’s/don’t’s is greatly appreciated
