Re: Does a leep...
Aug 30, 2006
I am not sure that I know the difference between a LEEP and a cone biopsy...I do know that I had the cone and it was done under general anesthsia...and when I woke up the pain was incredible...I felt like I was in labor, only with no breaks between the contractions. This lasted for a good three-four hours. Pain medication offered no relief. I don't know if this had anything to do with the amount of cervix that they removed, but I do know that I cannot undergo anymore procedures of this nature as I have very little of my cervix left..about a 100th...no joke. I had two trips back to the ER for hemorraging which really makes me question them having done this procedure over the hysterectomy..too late now. I feel awesome today. Regardless, prepare for the worst, because I did not. I thought it was going to be a piece of cake, in spite of the fact that my doctor told me it would be anything but. Please bear in mind that I had four other procedures performed at the time of my cone, but I still believe the cervical work was responsible for the majority of the pain. I read on one of these blogs that the cervix has no nerve endings...I was corrected big time by my doctor. She said "what do you think causes all of the pain during labor? So, if it hurts more than these other women say, then it is quite OK...we are all different.
