Hi, this is my first post. I will soon have a prostate biopsy and can elect to have a local or general anaesthetic. Since I am paying privately myself, I would prefer a local anaesthetic but have heard some horrendous accounts of the pain and discomfort it can involve.
Can anyone advise me based on their experiences? Is a general anaesthetic really necessary? Also can one have sedation instead of general anaesthetic for this procedure?
Thanks in advance.
