"Painful hysteroscopy procedure"

I was encouraged to undergo a hysteroscopy procedure without any anaesthetic. I was given the option, but was made to feel that it was no worse than a regular smear test.
The procedure was extremely painful, the gas and air offered was not effective, neither the 2 paracetamol I was advised to take before attending. This was laughable.
A polyp was removed and a sample of womb lining- very painful. Given the nature of the procedure, and the fact that you are worried of a possible cancer I feel this is unacceptable. Flash backs and nightmares have also happened to me since this procedure. I also feel this would put anyone off going for further treatment.
The staff were very kind and caring.
