Ladyparts-filter. Looking for advice/experiences from women who were diagnosed with cervical dysplasia/cancer and had the LEEP biopsy and/or laser ablation.
A couple years ago I had an abnormal pap, and then a colposcopy. Results showed "mild dysplasia" and we went with wait-and-see. Fast-forward through a couple more paps and colpos, and it's now time for surgery. Multiple docs agree that a shallow LEEP cone with laser ablation on the edges is the correct treatement.
Intellectually, I know that this is super common, I'm lucky we caught it early, it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, blah blah blah. Emotionally, I'm not so calm. I am reaching out to the women of the hivemind for some support! If you have gone through this, I could use some advice!
Specifically, I'm looking for your anecdotes, tips, and advice.
At this point, all I know is that I may have cramps/pain/bleeding and should plan to take a few days off. I just read this
which really freaked/grossed me out, but I'd rather be prepared than not.
