leep procedure

So, I am having my leep procedure in a little less than 12 hours now and I am just getting really scared.  I feel as if I should rest assured from reading many women's stories about their procedure and how they felt little to no pain afterwards.  I don't really have anyone I can talk to or feel even comfortable talking to this about, and I was trying to do some last minute research on the procedure to put my mind more at ease before the procedure acctually took place.  What I was wondering was if anyone can help me better understand what happens after the leep.  I was told that I have moderate dysplasia only after three colposcopys was that discovered but nevertheless they found it and are ready to treat it. But I have some questions and concerns because I feel very uneducated on the whole situation.  I was wondering approximaetly how long it will take to get the results of the leep procedure after it is done, and what are the chances that the abnormal cells will come back, and if anyone has experienced problems with pregnancy from having the leep.  I am not thinking about starting a family anytime soon, but I am afraid that when I do make that descision to start a family it will prove to be difficult because of this procedure.  I'm sorry I sound so jumbled I am just very nervous about all this and feel like no one in my life right now understands how scary this all can be. So, if anyone can provide me with any kind of answers at all that would be very much appreciated.  Thank you all so much for your time and good luck to everyone. God Bless <3

Everything went really well, I was very anxious for the surgery to happen and it ended up being delayed because my obgyn was called to go deliver a baby.  But, other than the delay it has been 3 days since my surgery I have no bleeding yet.. knock on wood.. although my obgyn said bleeding probably wont occur untul 7-8 days after the surgery.  Other than the first 2 days being very tired I am feeling fine and now I am just awaiting the results from the pathology report.  Thank you so much for asking and god bless you.

Jls, I'm so glad that everything went well, and Maire, I'l be thinking many good thoughts for you on Thursday. I get my report back on the same day you'll be having the procedure done. I'm anxious about them, but I've been trying my best to stay calm about it since my boyfriend is almost more afraid of what could turn up on the report than I am. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please. :) Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July, and please keep me updated as to how you're doing.

So how did everything go yesterday? As for me, the margins of my biopsy came back clear, so it looks like we got it all. However, my doctor told me that there was some "gland duct involvement" according to the colposcopy - has anyone ever heard of that? Then she told my boyfriend and me that if we had already had our children, she would recommend a partial hysterectomy just to take precautionary measures. Since we haven't had any kids yet, she recommended we step up our timeline - which we did. Now, I wait for my next pap, which is in six months. That will be the compass, according to my doctor. So far, so good, though. :)

I'm glad that you received good news, and I'm sure that you're extremely relieved.. i've never heard of the glad duct situation, but then again I'm new to this all? Are you going for the partial hysterectomy? I hope that all turns out o.k for you..

Yesterday I was nervous, I went in for the LEEP and everything went o.k, the only thing that bothered me was the shot, cause it made my heart pound and race a bit, but other than that i'm fine! Minimal cramping today, nothing too extreme at all, I'm happy I got it over with.. i have to go back in two weeks, what do they do then? Will they have the results already> or do they do another PAP? Again I'm so happy that i got that over with,I made it worse in my head than it actually was, ya know? But I'm grateful to have found this site, for some good info and support, it helps to know that you're not alone..

I'm so happy that it all went well for you! I agree that the shots are the worst part. After reading some of the horror stories from other message boards, it's pretty easy to get freaked out, but all in all, it's not that bad, is it? :) 

 I'm not too worried about the hysterectomy right now since my boyfriend and I haven't had our kids yet. We did, however, move up our timeline on having kids since my doc recommended it. For now, I'll just play that part by ear.

As for the two-week appointment, they will have your pathology report back, and if your appointment goes like mine, your doc will just discuss the results with you and set up an appointment for another Pap for either three or six months from now. 

I agree that this site has been a great help. It's so much easier to know now that we're not alone in this. Keep me posted with what's going on with you!

I was just doing research for message boards concering LEEP procedures. I was supposed to have one this morning but I was such a wreck and my body was so tense my Dr. couldnt even perform the procedure because I kept tightening up. No matter how hard I tried I couldnt relax. I wish I had found this message board before this morning. Now I have to reschedule it for almost a month away at a time when I can have anesthesia because my body wouldnt cooperate. Did anyone on here have anesthesia or did you just have the area numbed?
