After asking a number of people in the hospital as to where the clinic actually was as this is not clearly displayed in the hospital nor on the information leaflet sent to you I had the above procedure done yesterday. I was expecting to feel some slight discomfort after reading the information that was sent to me and had already taken two pain killers prior, but the pain I felt was excruciating, so much so I had to stop the doctor twice! This I found quite distressing and near on unbearable and was shocked and upset by it, the information leaflet had only mentioned slight cramping/period pains The whole process felt rushed and chaotic, with one nurse on one side, trying to take your mind off what was going on, by asking questions, whilst the other was showing you a diagram on a paper and pointing to the monitor so you could see in real - all at the same time. The doctor asked after if I had any questions and all I could answer was no, just let me get out if here. Please: more time, more care, more consideration and above all anaesthetics!
