First D&C & then LEEP needed

Hi,

I am new here but not new to having early losses. I have a history of Chemical Pregnancies; about 9-10 of those (long story). We are now going through another loss which stopped at 6 weeks. On top of that, they also discovered I have abnormal pre-cancerous cells from when they did a Coloscopy & Biopsy last week. So it was double bad news today and we decided to book a D&C so that way I can heal from that. Then a few weeks later I will go in and have the LEEP done. Since you can't have both procedures done so close together. I thought last weekend I was miscarrying but it was from the biopsies and this is my first D&C. Needless to say, it's been one big "roller coaster".

I know the LEEP should clear me of any bad cells but looks like a few months off to fully recover.

Thanks for listening...

I am sorry for your loss.

Child ment

My co-worker had a LEEP done and then got pregnant. When she was about 16 weeks they had to do another LEEP due to pre-cancer. She carried to term and her daughter will be three in January. She also had a son 3 months ago.

Hiya Hon,

I didn't know about the LEEP...Did you just find this out?

Have you had one before? I work for the Gyne Oncologists & if you have any questions please let me know.

You know you have all my T&P's.

Hi Diane, /wave.
I found out about the LEEP at the same time I found out I lost this baby. My doctor had to give me double bad news. From what I have been "googling", the LEEP does not sound so bad & it's more common than I thought.

Sorta good news, my D&C has been canceled. Started spotting over the weekend and finally bleeding. Hopefully it'll be like a bad period. Relieved nature finally took over.

Think my doctor said I can start TTC again a few weeks after the LEEP (like 4-6 weeks). At my age (41), she knows we want to try again sooner than later.

Jennifer
P.S. Thanks for the T&P's!

HI Sweets. I'm sorry for all of your bad news.

Thanks Deborah! I know there are a few kinds of LEEP, someone I know had the cryo freezing done. I am kind of looking forward to this procedure now so I can get back to being healthy again. It'll give me 2-3 months to get back into a good health routine, I ordered a slew of stuff from the VitaminShoppe, and plan on dusting off my WiFit too.

I just wanted to let you know I had a LEEP done for stage 3-high grade- pre-cancerous cells, I think a year and a half ago. Can't remember exact date right now. But anyway, it wasn't that bad. *might be a bit graphic* I went to my appointment and starts out like a pap, then the doctor takes a camera to look inside, for me they used a knife shaped like a hoop, but first they injected stuff to freeze my cervix, then they removed all the abnormal cells they could see, I think it took about 20-30 min because I had alot of abnormal cells. Only once did it hurt because he cut a spot that wasn't frozen, but other than that it was just uncomfortable. I was really crampy and sore for a few weeks, but then I was fine. Also, you might want to take some Ibuprofine (sp?) or Tylenol before the procedure to kinda help with pain. It does help.

Good luck with your procedures :bigarmhug:
