    cone biopsy

    Has anyone had the cone biopsy done in the doctors office and if so how did it go for you? During and afterwards, was is it painful? Did you bleed?
    Having a second one done in the office the first one was done in the hospital. Not sure how I feel about this.

    Thank you for any advice you can give.

    Re: cone biopsy

    Hi, msbarbiq. Are you having a cold knife cone biopsy, or something done with a LEEP tool? I have never heard of doing a cold knife cone as an outpatient procedure. Particularly with it being a second one, where your cerivx is already shorter and I would think the chance of excess bleeding would be greater.

    If you mean a LEEP procedure, I did have that done in the doc's office, and it wasn't too bad. I had very little bleeding afterward.

    What exactly were the results from your first procedure? Was it done a long time ago or just recently?

    When in doubt, it never hurts to seek a second opinion. If your doc is unable or unwilling to explain exactly why he or she is recommending this particular procedure and this setting, then getting another opinion would be a good idea.

    Keep us posted on how its going. Sending good thoughts your way for good results.

    Re: cone biopsy

    Just saw your earlier post - I understand your story better now. So when you last posted you were going for another colposcopy - what did the pathology report from that say?

    Hi junipersage,
    Thanks for your response
    well the cone was done with the Leep tool last Tuesday, not so bad. A little uncomfortable but not as bad as I thought it would be. My second coloposcopy, last month, showed CIN 2. Last time I had CIN3 removed in September of last year, showed clear margins. So now I am waiting for results again hoping for good news. I just don't know how come it came back so fast :/
    Have you had anything like this?

    Thanks again for your reply

    Re: cone biopsy

    No, my situation was different. I had adenocarcinoma in situ but wasn't able to remove it with a LEEP or a cone, so it had to be a hysterectomy for me. :-(

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get good results from your cone.
