LEEP.  Been there.  Done that.  Beyond the preparation instructions my Doctor mailed me, I was unaware of exactly what I was in for because I stopped reading at “an electric current passes through the fine wire loop to cut away a thin layer of abnormal tissue”, which was pretty much the first paragraph.  Some things a person just doesn’t need to know too much about.  The grounding me to their machine was a little unsettling.  As was the big smoke evacuation tube.  But, all in all, it wasn’t so bad.  The best part?  She showed me the end-of-your-thumb-sized chunk of flesh she removed but, unfortunately, didn’t take me seriously when I asked to take a picture of it.
