Just a few comments:
The staff were very kind and informative and the procedure not as bad as I had expected but the patient information could have been better.
There was no info on whether I would need time off work before or after the procedure - in fact I was fine and took a day off for no reason - but I did get some gardening done.
I wish I'd known that the sedation would only last a couple of hours - this was also not mentioned in the patient information. As one is not allowed to drive or sign legal documents for 24 hours, I thought the sedation would have a much greater and longer lasting effect than it did.
Generally not too bad an experience.
