I’m hoping to get some good advice here - the last few months have been a whirlwind. From one pap test to the very next I went from fully normal to high grade precancerous, and my LEEP is scheduled for next Monday. I’ve been trying to be very casual and nonchalant about the whole thing, especially with my family because I don’t want them to worry. But as I get closer to my actual procedure date, I find myself more and more anxious about the whole thing. I had a particularly rough time with my colposcopy and biopsy, which was done with local anesthesia only. My LEEP will be under general anesthesia, which I’ve never had before, so of course that is adding to my anxiety. I was wondering, is there anyone who has undergone the LEEP with full general anesthesia, and did you deal with any complications afterwards? Also, I don’t think my doctor mentioned if I would receive additional results after the procedure - do they test the area that is removed as well, to check for additional abnormalities? I’m trying to reassure myself, I guess, since the floodgates have officially opened and all of the fear I’ve been pushing off for the last couple of weeks is catching up with me.
Thank you so much!
