How long would it take to heal after a colposcopy/biopsy?

Hi,

It's my schedule for colposcopy and biopsy tomorrow(May 21) and I don't know how long would it take to heal. I am worried because my daughter has a recognition award on monday(May 24) and I have to attend the award ceremony. Our house is walking distance to the school. Will I be able to walk to the school after the biopsy(coz I dont drive yet)? Will there be bleeding or weakness after? I need to attend on that day without my husband coz he has an important function in the military and it's compulsary for him to be there.

What is the feeling after the biopsy? God bless

you should be fine that same day....maybe some cramping, maybe a bit of spotting, but you can go back to work or whatever, right after the procedure.

Good luck today!

It feels like horrible cramps... I am such a baby I usually have my Dr. give me just a few hydrocodones to last me the next few days.

My first time.. I thought the scariest part was the discharge that comes out about 1-2 days later (no pain- just weird and unexpected)...this was not explained to me that this was normal.

Feel better :)

You should be absolutely fine, maybe some light bleeding and cramps. Take some tylenol or ibuprofen before you leave and take some with. The walk will probably do you good. I at least always feel better after walking, it eases up any cramps. Have fun with your daughter :)

Much depends on the individual and how many (and what type of) biopsies are taken. Personally I was in pretty good shape. A maxi pad was all I needed for the bleeding. I'd have some extra pads and tylenol in my purse just in case. Good luck!

There was just some slight bleeding and a little cramping for me, after my colposcopy. Just bring some pads, take some Motrin and you'll be fine.

I just went in and out, no pain, and just little spots in the pad for a couple of days... I went to work the very next day.

Hi,

My colpo/biopsy was good. I didn't even noticed it's finished coz the Doctor was talking to me. I just heard a snap and he said I need 1 more...so he was done with the first sample very quick. After the procedure, I just felt a little cramping so my husband carried me to our room. The doctor said my cervix now looks better and he even said maybe this is just low grade or normal. I will get the result on June 7. I just hope it's normal coz I am doing natural suppliments now and very careful with the food I eat. God bless us all

I was fine after, didn't even know anything was done and even took a tae kwon do class the next night with no problems. I didn't even have any bleeding, though that is pretty common.
