This was performed on an outpatient basis in September 2012.
Although I was given a consent form and told about the risks, I was not told about the excruciating pain that could occur. Despite my GP saying I would be offered pain relief I was not and following the procedure when it was clear something very abnormal had been seen, there was no discussion.
I felt terrible after and I was told not to let the next patient see me or they would be put off. Cancer was found and this was a shock as no discussion had been forthcoming. Despite the obvious fact on hindsight that the doctor was suspicious of this.
I thought the fact that they hurt me so much was unacceptable but the speed of scans etc after this and my referral to another hospital saved my life.
