I am booked in to have an ablation in Liverpool next month under local anaesthetic. My biggest worry is the amount of sedation that they give you. Six weeks ago I had a cataract removed under local anaesthetic. The procedure took about 20 minutes, during which time I was fully aware of things going on around me ( including the consultant saying quietly to the person doing the procedure "Don't press down on the eye. Don't press down on the eye. You're pressing down on the eye.)!!
It was bad enough lying there for 20 minutes! I couldn't wait to get out of the theatre. I don't know if I can do it for 2-4 hours. What if I want to move, or worse still go to the toilet.
Has anyone had their ablation done at Liverpool, and if so how sedated were you?
