... fact that I was pregnant. Now my bundle of joy is here, and they're ready to laser these abnormalities off, and they're telling me I have to be put under general anesthesia during this procedure. ... (12 replies)
... I also wanted to comment that sometimes an epidural doesn't "take," and then you'd be stuck with a different anesthesia route. ... (12 replies)
... Hearing that I do have options as far as anesthesia is concerned makes me feel better, because some doctors make you feel like there is only one way a certain thing can be done. ... (12 replies)

... However, if you truly do not want general anesthesia and it is scaring you, I believe a good step would be to request a consultation with an anesthesiologist at the facility where you'll be doing the treatment. ... (12 replies)
... you all in understanding my worries and anxiety, and the reason why I'm turning such a minor thing into such a big thing, but yes I am at peace with the general anesthesia now, but I have another problem. ... (12 replies)
... So I spoke with my doctor's nurse today, and she told me the doctor would be fine with me getting an epidural as long as the anesthesiologist didn't care. So we're set right? I'm getting general anesthesia (yes, you are reading that correctly. :p ) I thought about it, and obviously it makes more sense in the minor procedure they'll be performing on me, and the fact that...

... What about IV sedation? I'm not a dr, so you'd have to check with yours of course, but that might be a possibility. I had IV sedation for my CKC and I didn't feel *a thing* until about 24 hours later (some cramps the next day). I think I was out for about 30-45 mins? Can't remember. It was fantastic - I didn't hear or smell anything or see anything - it's like a short nap.... (12 replies)
... Autumn I can totally understand your not wanting to go under! Have you talked to your doctor about giving giving you a spinal block (basically an epidural)? When I went in for a CKC, the doctor said the anesthesiologist would either put me under or do the spinal block. The idea of being awake totally freaks me out, so I told the guy to please put me to sleep. But I... (12 replies)
... Don't sweat the period - the stress of waiting for the procedure was making mine come when it wasn't due, and they assured me that they would do it anyhow, no problem. (12 replies)
... I'm sad to hear your lost your mother at such an early age. I'm also thrilled you were able to have your precious baby after having had a cone! When it comes to your period, I think they can go ahead and do it. They did my CKC when my period was just starting and they did my hyst when I was in the middle of my period. No problems.

... Autumn, when I have a doctor's appointment I go in with a written list of questions for my doctor. Often, the doctor will look the list over before starting because they can answer several questions at one time. Otherwise, the doctor gets an idea of how detailed of a reply you are seeing (do you want the basics or full-on medical terms). I use my written list of questions... (12 replies)
... What specific procedures is your doctor anticipating? It sounds like it is more extensive than something like a LEEP. One major problem that I've heard about laser procedures is the smell of the burning flesh. It is vile. I wouldn't want to be awake for that. Lily's advice is very good, too. (12 replies)

... Typically the recommended treatment for adenocarcinoma in situ is hysterectomy, but as one doctor explained it to me, it is the recommended treatment because it is the easiest and it is not the only option.
