I am having this in a couple of weeks time - what should I expect? The hospital says it will take 30 minutes

    You should expect to have to drink 1 litre of water 1 hour before the test so your bladder gets really full then hop around the waiting room for an extra half an hour with a very full bladder waiting for the ultrasound technician to become free. They are aware of how uncomfortable that can be so let you have a wee after examining your very full bladder.
