Re: LEEP Procedure

Anxious, please donít worry, the LEEP is not a big deal at all. Tell your doc to give you a Valium or other oral sedative if you like.
I took Valium and was feeling fine (Iím a major coward btw).
Most likely, youíll have brownish discharge for 1 week, and a very light bleeding for 2-3 weeks after. My post-op memo says that and so far I find it accurate. Possibly cramps (I have none, just some light bleeding. My LEEP was on Oct 12).
2 more days and I can exercise, yippee! I wouldnít lift heavy stuff over 20 lbs though or exert, just in case. The scab on the wound can come off prematurely and youíll bleed more. Fast walks are fine.
Yes, get it over with ASAP. That was my reasoning also.

Sippy - best of luck with the second one. Have you done a PAP/Colpo 6 months after your 1st LEEP? Sometimes the unclear margins are burnt off by coagulation. From what I understand, unclear margins arenít as important in recurrence of CIN as involvement of glands, age, and HPV presence anyway, unless they are combined with these factors.

I could be wrong, but I thought a repeat LEEP/Cone is done when CIN of original grade or higher recurs and persists, after 6 mo examination.
