Cervical conization- what can I expect? Will I be out?

Discuss with doctor : Cold knife conization is a procedure in which a cone shaped biopsy of the cervix is removed to treat cervical dysplasia. No overnight stay is required unless complications arise. You will be put under general anesthesia and the surgery lasts approximately 30 minutes. Your total recovery time varies from 1-2 weeks. The cervix, however, usually takes 4-6 weeks to heal completely. ...Read more

Cervical conization- what can I expect to happen?

Easy procedure: A cold cone biopsy of the cervix is a quick procedure & usually done in the or in case heavy bleeding is encountered. Either a general anesthetic, IV sedation, or a local injection can be used. I prefer a combination of the later two and my patients do very well. They rarely feel any pain & appreciate the short nap. ...Read more

What is a cervical conization?

Remove precancerous: Cervical conization is a surgery to remove a section of the cervix when there are pre-cancerous cells. This can usually be done in the office, and recovery is not too uncomfortable. Extra repeat pap smears should still be done to make sure all pre-cancerous cells are gone and don't return. Can still have kids after, but cervix can be weak or scarred, so will need special attention when pregnant. ...Read more

Pregnancy: Many women who have had cervical cones have had healthy term infants. You should have close evaluation of the length of the cervix early in 2nd trimester to determine if cervical insufficiency (weakening/shortening) has occurred. If so there are treatments available to extend your pregnancy if intervention is early. ...Read more

Cervical conization while pregnant - do doctors do that, or is it dangerous?

Rarely: One would need to have advanced cervical dysplasia with the worry of possible invasive cervical cancer to warrant a conization during pregnancy. Complications would include excessive bleeding, infection, and loss of enough cervical tissue to risk preterm labor. In 30 years I have done two of these and none in the past 15 years. ...Read more

Biopsy diagnosis?: Until the cervix is biopsied via Colposcopy or other means, the Pap smear diagnosis is irrelevant. We use the biopsied tissue to determine and document the diagnosis. Future pregnancy is possible if it is not invasive cervical cancer and even then eggs can be harvested from your ovaries prior to definitive surgery. ...Read more
