    Laser Ablation

    Last summer I had my first cervial surgery (LEEP) for severe dysplasia. I had one normal pap & then my last two were abnormal (moderate dysplasia). My DR thinks that there were areas that were not removed successfully....I also did NOT have clear margins.

    Well last Friday I had a cervical Laser procedure (out- patient in the hospital) what a "breeze" that was. I was scared about being "put out".....I don't remember a thing & he was able to perform the surgery & be a little more aggresive.

    I was on my period (bla..I know) but, afterwards I only bled the next day for about 6 hrs & that was it. Also there is NO discharge & your cervix heals alot faster.

    With the LEEP there was a gross discharge that lasted for me a month. But, other than the discharge the Leep was NOT bad at all.

    I am just praying that this will be it for my cervical promblems. Thanks!

    I'll pray with you!

    ...I was going to have the lEEP as well but the Dr suggested laser ablation instead- as I didn't have health insurance. So we did just that. But , after 3 paps. that 3rd one came back abnormal i'm just praying I won't have to do that again. The surgery went great but I ended up with a pretty rough bladder infection from the catheder or something....anyway my thoughts will be with you.
