I had my follow up appointment this morning after having my biopsy done. Results show CIN2 which is what he was thinking would show up after he had a look during my colposcopy. My appointment today was simply to go over the test results so he could explain the findings. Even though I saw my lab report before today, I was still so nervous that maybe it showed something sinister than I didn’t understand in the terminology.
He told me the biopsy showed exactly as he expected, CIN2. He also said that the biopsy he took from the cervical canal came back clear and negative of any changes which he was pleased with. He said with the location and grade of my changes he has no doubt after the LEEP I’ll be good to go. So I go back on the 27th of this month for a pre-op type of appointment as he likes to do LEEP under GA (via an IV as you would have when getting your wisdom teeth removed, etc). He said it’s more more comfortable this way and less stressful for me as I’ll be asleep while he’s removing the cells.
I feel confident and positive after speaking with him and discussing everything. But partly nervous also bc I’ve never had any type of anesthesia at all. As a person with health anxiety, I worry about it. But after talking to a few people they said it’s not bad at all, a few people I spoke with actually enjoy it (maybe the gas they give you before? Lol). My doctor said I would only be asleep for about 10 minutes as the procedure is very quick. Anyone had LEEP under GA and have any advice for me? I know I shouldn’t worry about it as it’s such a common thing, an in office procedure, and very quick, but of course I still do!
