Do you mean Hysteroscopy? A scope put into your womb?

I have had several pelvic procedures under epidural. Because of my asthma. I dont have sub cuts etc. But the anaestist was constantly checking my heart and lungs druing the procedure. If you tell them about your pumps they will keep an eye on evrything for oyu.
