Re: Worried

Thanks for the compliment, Deepintheheart! That means a lot to me.

I am doing pretty well. Recovery from the first cone biopsy took about 2 weeks. I felt much better after about 4 or 5 days, though. The second cone biopsy was the day before my hysterectomy. So the discomfort I'm feeling is from the hyst, not the cone.

I think the cone can take more tissue than the LEEP, but not necessarily. Again, the LEEP singes the edges on the tissue that is taken and the tissue that is left. What my doctor did was cut, so the tissue sample had good margins, then singed the edges of the remaining cervix.

What I've read about women's experiences with the LEEP is it hurt to have the cervix numbed. They smelled the burning of the cervix/flesh as they doctor did the LEEP. Both of those things ick me out. I read one woman who really wanted it down in the office said that her doctor told her she HAD to stay still, no matter what. *I* wouldn't want to trust my ability to not flinch if something hurt. So, I was perfectly happy with being knocked out for the cone. Just my own opinion and preference.
