Hi Nessa,

Thank you for your reply - I've been doing a lot of research and consideration, and I was coming to the same conclusion - one LEEP is probably going to be less of a problem overall than repeated colposcopies.

I'm curious to know about your LEEP - if you had it in office or as a day surgery with sedation. Because of the fears and bad memories I mentioned in my first post I'm strongly leaning toward the in office procedure, to avoid the sedation and all the fuss and loss of control that goes with it. But at the same time I'm trying to gather as much info as I can about what people experienced during the procedure, however they had it done, so I can be better prepared.

Any info you can provide will be appreciated - thanks!!


[QUOTE=nessa84;3753737]Hi. I was diagnosed with the same and worse at the same time. CIN II and CIN III. I have had numerous colposcopies from the "wait and see" method... eventually (okay, after about 6-8 months), the doctors and you will get tired and want another option.

I chose to have the LEEP procedure done. Matter of fact, I just had it done two weeks ago. I still have a little discharge, but it's not bad... no technicolor. You'll have strange colors from the colposcopies too, because of the silver nitrate they put on you, but it'll only be black or silver. Nothing too weird.

As far as I'm concerned, because I've been battling for over a year, I'm tired. I want them to combat the disease and take care of it before it takes care of me.[/QUOTE]
Hey... I had the day procedure done and was under anestesia. I trusted my doctor... I've had this doctor since I was fifteen. I really can't say that there was much pain or anything, since they were kind enough to start me on pain killers right away. At most I had some cramping... nothing too major.

My best advice to you is to choose what you are comfortable with. You know your body the best... do what you think is right. :)
