    Hi, please try not to worry. I had same in February, and honestly, it was a breeze. Tiny needle in the back of my hand, drifted off to sleep and woke up smiling about 15 mins later feeling right as rain. Pain no worse than a mild period, quickly resolved by paracetamol. Had to stay in hospital for two hours post op, tried to snooze, but felt wide awake. Was back to normal next day. It was the needle that frightened me, but it was almost pain free.ย

    Sorry, clicked the wrong button! I was in a room with seven other ladies, very friendly, nurses were great, and I remember thinking how lucky I was afterwards, as one lady was given bad news. I still wonder how she is doing. I was like you beforehand, but if I had to go back tomorrow, I would honestly not worry at all. I took my ipad and looked at photos of my new house, puppies, the garden, whatever makes you happy. Take an ipod! A good book, crossword. Treat yourself to some nice toiletries or a light, fresh perfume... And think that in not much more than 24 hours, it will all be over and youll be wondering why you were so anxious! Let us know how it goes and good luck. Xx

Keep busy today, make food to freeze for dinners you can " zap"...give the house a good clean...you won't be doing it for a while !! ( truly...you can't! ) ย any ironing ? Washing?? Do it all today....shower and early night...

      O blimey! HaHaHa....๐Ÿ˜„ senior moment Hun....I read Hysterectomy !!!!

      ok HYSTEROSCOPY.....we'll then I'm in charge here !! Had several....not successful in having children....they seemed to do this every 5 minutes in that time...

      I preferred the light sedation......anaesthetics are not what they were years ago, it a light procedure and as long as you take a week off, don't do any

      lifting and just chill..treat yourself gently for a while..it'll be ok.

      do try not to worry, and keep us posted. So sorry for misunderstanding!!

      Hi hun

      Do not worry I had the same ptocedure in feb. I was terrified of being put to sleep mote than the procedure. I only took ywo paracetamol when I got home. Didnt need anything else. The anaesthetic made me geel quite down in the dumps till it came out of my system. I suffer with depression in perimenopause so wasnt really expecting it. But once I knew it can happen i teased my mind. I took a weekofff work only because of after effects of anaesthetic

    Not medically proven, but works for me, try smelling lavender oil. I know it sounds strange but I used it all through my pregnancy and labour, totally relaxed and so was my baby when she was born. ย Just a thought, hope it helps X
