It was unhelpful that I wasnt told I would bleed so didnt bring sanitary protection! Still bleeding a week later thank god pain has subsided! Have the odd twinge now and again! To be told by the consultant I wouldnt need pain relief as I have had three children I think was rediculous I feel I am now dreading any further procedures and will definately need sedation if need another procedure
