I'm hearing a lot of stories that suggest the procedure is more of an ordeal for women than it is for men. I also looked to see any research stats and they seem to back this up, there was also a distinction between the amount of body fat and the pain or discomfort felt.
Apparently the greater waist dimension the easier the process was, does this make any sense? I have a visit booked in the next 2 weeks and was concerned, as I'm sure most are, I was worried my BP would escalate in the run up, but I find that getting to know and learn as much as I can is important to me in making this bearable.
I have to say I was really concerned almost panic-stricken when I first got news of my appointment, particularly about the pain issue and I was really wound up and worried about this, I saw my Doctor, and he is apparently an old hand at sending people and when he checked me out he looked at general fitness and state of health and recommended I take a mild sedative for three days beforehand (including the day of my appointment) and that I tell the hospital about this, on the day I am to ask the hospital to have sedation on hand but to request it only if absolutely necessary.
I'd be interested to hear views. Also I would recommend to anyone concerned that by visiting your GP and telling them your concerns, you can actually feel better and almost relaxed about this.
