Re: LEEP side effects?
Pepper, I didn't have a LEEP, rather I had a cone biopsy, but I think healing is similar.
Are you resting a lot? I stayed in bed the remainder of the day of my cone and most of the next day. I got up the 2nd day after the cone, but rested a few times that day. Then I went to work on the 3rd day (and rested a lot that night). After that I seemed ok. I know I had some cramping, but nothing that a bit if ibuprofen didn't handle.
As far as discharge, I had discharge for 10-15 days after my cone. It was constant, reddish-brown (more brown), and pretty clear. It was enough to wear a panty liner every day for 2 weeks. I know by day 20 or so, there was no more discharge.
I hope that helps and I hope you are feeling better very soon. Take it easy. You get one chance to heal. The better healing you have, the fewer possible complications further down the road (esp if you are going to be trying to conceive.)
