Hello all, I'm not sure if I'm in the right place to ask this question but here it is.
I have not been diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. I had an abnormal pap result (ASCUS and HPV 16 positive), followed by a colposcopy and diagnosis of CIN3, exo and endo cervical. I was referred to another doctor for a leep conization (cone biopsy), which I was told is something that is done in the office with local anasthesia. I find this quite alarming. I've done a fair bit of research on cone biopsies and it seems so scary to me. From what I have read, it seems like it's a matter of preference whether a doctor chooses to do local or general anesthesia, depending upon the extent of the cone needed to biopsy.
So I'm curious about what everybody else's experience is with this. For those who have undergone a cone biopsy, what kind of anesthesia did they give you? What was your experience like? (Pain during or after the procedure?) What were your results? Thanks so much for your time and your thoughts; I can tell that this website is going to be a valuable resource throughout this process.
